Banana & Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe

I'm pretty into Pinterest. It's great whenever you have some time to kill, and I always end up finding neat DIYs or interesting recipes. Here's where I found the Quick Chiquita Banana Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe. It's a great breakfast smoothie that is filling, quick and easy to make. It calls for (for 2 servings):

  • 2   whole Chiquita Bananas (best with brown flecks on peel)
  • 2   cups Ice
  • 1/3   cup Yogurt - preferably Greek yogurt flavored with honey
  • 1/2   cup Cooked oatmeal
  • 1/3   cup Almonds
However, I've made some personal adjustments to suit my own tastes. I omit the almonds and just put in a bit of almond milk. I find the consistency more fluid, and just like having milk in my smoothie as compared to just yogurt and ice. I've also added a bit of peanut butter to it sometimes, just to alternate the taste. It never really occurred to me before to try cooked oatmeal in my smoothies, but I'm glad I did!
