This oatmeal smoothie is to die for!
Ok, maybe I am exaggerating a little but when I made it I was immediately hooked and want it every day. It is a great replenisher after a hard workout.
The reason that I love oats so much is because they are so nutritious and filling.
Eating oatmeal every day is a antidote to having heart issues and cholesterol issues which as we get older, lets face it, we all worry about.
One thing that is a benefit of eating oats is that they are a low glycemic food. Not to mention that oats are an antioxidant and high in fiber too. Nice!!
So you can imagine why the drive to have more oats in the morning. But it can get so boring eating plain oatmeal everyday. We have to spice it up a little. I have to spice everything up a little that is why I came up with this recipe. It is actually a variation of a recipe that I saw on my all time favorite pastime website, Pinterest!
