Oatmeal Smoothies

Oatmeal in a smoothie? It may sound strange, but it’s actually delicious! I first came across this concept on Gina’s Skinny Recipes. You must check out her site if you haven’t already, it’s one of my favourite places to find recipes for low fat food that tastes great. She wrote a post about a healthy oatmeal shake known as Avena, which is apparently quite popular in many Latin countries. I can see now why it’s so popular. The oatmeal not only adds nutrition but also provides a wonderful creamy texture. I especially love the hint of cinnamon, it’s surprisingly yummy. Inspired by this oatmeal shake, I decided to try oatmeal in a banana-berry smoothie one day. It was so smooth and refreshing, and the kids loved it too. I’m sold on oatmeal shakes and smoothies. They make the perfect summer breakfast when it’s too hot for oatmeal.
