Power smoothie for your heart and health

{ Image above: What’s Gaby Cooking}

If you are looking for a healthy way to add fiber into your daily ritual, then look no further than a breakfast staple that sometimes gets ignored in the food pantry – oatmeal. Oatmeal is a power food for your heart. And it’s also a whole grain which according to the United States Department of Agriculture you need to make at least half your grains whole grains.

Oatmeal has plenty of health benefits: provides high levels of fiber, low levels of fat, high levels of protein and enhances weight loss. This concentrated whole grain of fiber packed with nutrients is also thought to protect against breast cancer as well as heart disease.

So don’t be afraid to add 1/4 cup of oatmeal per smoothie serving. Adding oatmeal helps thicken up your smoothie and keeps you feeling fuller longer.

Drink this smoothie recipe before your morning exercise routine and you’ll have the energy you need to get through your workout.

Banana Oatmeal Smoothie:

1 frozen banana
1/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal (uncooked)
1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1 cup filtered water
2 tbsp flaxseeds
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp raw honey
sprinkle of cinnamon

Tip: It’s always a good idea to add frozen fruits to your smoothies instead of adding ice. We like to freeze our bananas for this recipe.
