Most smoothies stick to the fruit, but what if you included some good old fashioned oats? It no longer is just a smoothie, it's a complete meal! Check out this video recipe for the full details of the oatmeal fruit smoothie.
Oatmeal is a versatile grain as shown by food coach and Chef German Lam. Cook up a batch of quick oats with cranberries, honey, apples and cinnamon. Let it cool completely. Then add to a blender with yogurt, milk and bananas. Calcium, fiber, vitamin C-rich cranberries, potassium - it's all in here. Drink a glass for breakfast, lunch or a snack. It's all good.
