Cold banana oatmeal?
Shredded oats and banana ice?
Nah, banana oat smoothie sounds much more appetizing. Oats add a wonderful richness and nuttiness to this smoothie.
We're creating a complete and balanced breakfast here. It's refreshing, portable, and best of all, quick to make. Perfect for those mornings when you are hammering on the keyboard to finish a paper and do not have the time to think about breakfast.
Instead, stick it all in a blender and push the on button. Enjoy while finishing that homework, you procrastinator, you (I mean, me).
