Banana Yogurt Smoothie

This delicious smoothie is packed with protein, potassium, calcium, fiber, vitamin c and omega-3s.


1 medium banana
4 tbsp Quaker oats
1 cup orange juice
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tsp flaxseeds
3-4 ice cubes


Place the flaxseeds in a blender and puree for 30 seconds until they are coarsely ground.

Cut the banana into small pieces and add into the blender with the oats, yogurt, orange juice and ice cubes and blend until smooth and thick. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

You can also use a pear in place of the banana. Just as delicious!
