This is a healthy , quick and delicious anytime treat. My husband loves this in the morning for breakfast. The shake will keep you full and give you lots of energy to keep you going strong throughout the day.
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk (skim, fat free, 2% or whole milk. whatever works for you)
- 1⁄2 cup ice
- 1 banana (Large, Frozen works best as a review has suggested)
- 1⁄2 cup oats (old fashioned)
- 1 -2 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ (optional)
- 1⁄8-1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend for 45 seconds.
- pour into glass and enjoy!
Very good! I used fat free milk, honey, quick cooking oats, wheat germ and frozen banana. Delicious! I meant to add flaxseed like CoffeeB suggested but forgot. Next time I will. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
The taste is really good. The shake itself is a bit thin. Don't know exactly what to add to it to make it thicker though. Most of the oatmeal was at the bottom of the shake, too. But overall, I love the fact that it is healthy and I will probably have one a few times a week. I'll just have to experiment!!
Ooooo this is so so good. So thick and creamy and mine was really cold because my banana was frozen. I still did add a bit of ice to the mix. I opted out of the honey and added one packet of splenda along with a flaxmeal/cinnamon/brownsugar blend I keep on hand to top my oatmeal with most mornings. I thought I would try this instead of the normal and I was not disappointed. A great idea for the summer months and still getting your oats. Oh...BTW..I used the oldfashioned kind and so the consistency might be a bit thinner using the quick style. A keeper...:-)
