Oatmeal Banana Smoothie

Sharing what I've been "addicted" to for the past month or so........Oatmeal Banana Smoothies!  I think I have one about every day (it usually serves as my lunch)...such a refreshing treat! I absolutely love the texture and taste the oatmeal adds to the smoothie.
Now I'm not one of those people who meticulously measures things --- I just dump --- but I'll give you the ingredients I use and you can experiment till you get it to taste the way you like.

Oatmeal Banana Smoothies
Ice Cubes
I put the oatmeal in the blender 1st (about 1/2 cup or so) -- blend till it becomes powder like.
Next add the bananas (1 for a single serving - more for larger servings)
Add the honey and milk and blend till pureed. 
Last of all add ice cubes till it thickens and reaches your desired texture.

Variations: You can....
 ~use sugar instead of honey
~add some frozen strawberries for some extra zing
~use plain yogurt in place of the milk
~add ice cream instead of milk and ice cubes for a milk shake consistency

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog and for sharing your smoothie method. This sounds delicious - and like a great way to get some whole grains into your diet, too. Have you ever tried freezing banana slices to use in it? I tried this for the first time last year and was surprised how ice-creamy the textures was!
