Smoothies are great on hot summer days and they make an easy, quick breakfast. This Banana-Oat Smoothie is made with ingredients I always have on hand and you probably do, too—a banana, rolled oats, low-fat Greek yogurt, milk, honey, and cinnamon. Not only does it taste great, it’s a yummy way to get some oatmeal into your diet! 🙂
Before serving this smoothie, you can sprinkle a little cinnamon on top as a garnish. If you have an extra banana and you want to make the smoothie extra fancy, you could put a few thin banana slices on top and then sprinkle cinnamon over that! The inspiration for this smoothie is from MarthaStewart.com, with a few minor changes. This recipe makes 1 serving, so if you’re wanting more, just double or triple the recipe!
