I hear from so many people that they do not like oatmeal. I am one that actually loves it, however, I live with some that do not. I have learned to become creative with it and it has gotten them to actually enjoy oatmeal. One of those ways is to make a shake with it. This is perfect because it is quick and easy to make and you can take it with you on your way to school, work, or the gym.
- 1/2 nectarine (frozen)
- 1/2 banana (frozen)
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal (uncooked)
- 1 scoop whey protein powder
Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend to the desired consistency.
What I really like about this shake is that it is that you can use it with any fruit which is how I keep it from being the same thing every day. I have used strawberries, blueberries, etc. The only ingredients I do not change are the banana, oatmeal, and protein. I use vanilla for the protein powder but you can use whatever flavor you like.
My son always tells me how much he hates oatmeal and he drank this shake for weeks before he saw me make it and realized it had oatmeal in it.
Remember when you are freezing your bananas to make sure they are leopard-spotted and leave the peeling on. I do go ahead and cut them in half before freezing. They are easy to peel right out of the freezer. This is a great thing to do with your bananas to keep from throwing them out because they are bad. I have started cutting up all of our fruit that is not eaten and freezing it for these as well as the other shakes that I will share later!
