"Oatmeal is such a good start for the day, but its not as attractive on a hot summer morning as it is in winter. This version is just like a chocolate shake, except it is as nutritious as a bowl of oatmeal while being cool and inviting for summer. If you don't care for banana, you can use a half cup of any fruit, or even canned pumpkin. It is adapted from a protein shake recipe from a website for runners, but you can leave out the protein powder and it is still delicious. Since protein powders usually are sweetened, you may want to add some type of sweetener to this if you decide not to use the protein powder. "

I like my breakfast smoothies and this one is delicious. I have substituted the bananas with blueberries, strawberries and I just tried peaches. They are all delicious. I do use the protein powder to give me all the nutrition I can get. Delicious and healthy and a great way to start the day!

I mixed all this together with my immersion blender and it turned out perfectly. Made for the Alphabet Soup Recipe Tag Game.
