Banana Oatmeal Smoothie





You really just have to love banana- they are kind of amazing; you can get them year round, you don’t have to cook them, they are sweet, delicious and come in their own biodegradable packaging!

Bananas are one of the best sources of potassium {ever get those dreaded leg cramps at night- yikes}.   Since bananas contain a whopping 400-plus mg of potassium and only 1 mg of sodium, they may help prevent high blood pressure and build better bones.  Throw them in the blender with some old-grain oats , yogurt , fat-free milk, and a touch a honey and cinnamon for a delicious and healthy way to start your day.

  1. Mmmm, yes please!

  2. Mix the oats and yogurt and soak those overnight. It will make the oats more digestible and nutritious.
