Recipe: Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

7 Aug


Smoothies are great “on the go” meals where you’re only limited by your creativity. Personally I prefer the sweet, fruit-based dairy smoothies, and opt for natural low-fat yoghurt as my protein source rather than protein powders.

This banana oatmeal smoothie is great for a post-workout meal or breakfast on the go. Yes, its down-side is the higher sugar content… but keep in mind the sugars are all natural, nothing refined. Its a great source of fibre and calcium, and keeps you feeling full and satisfied.
