This is a delicious, um, drink that packs a bit of heft and 9 grams of protein -- with only about 230 calories! Several of these recipes come from a colleague cardiologist's office, so I feel better already.
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon flax seed, ground
- 1 banana, sliced
- 14 frozen strawberries
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sugar or 1 1⁄2 teaspoons honey
- Blend above until smooth. Serve the colder the better.
A very tasty smoothie with lots of good things in it. I also needed a bit more milk to thin it down a bit, but the flavor was great! Made for Spring 2012 PAC game.
I, too, sometimes add rolled oats to my smoothies, & your recipe here makes for a delicious drink! I did add a bit more milk & left out the sugar, but other than that, right on! Definitely a recipe I'll keep around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
