Avena - Healthy Oatmeal Shake

I'm so glad I found this recipe! This is a popular drink in Latin America and it is so yummy for breakfast. It is low fat, high in fiber and lowers cholesterol. I usually eat my breakfast in my car on the way to work, so this is great for me.

  1. I tried making this recipe once... was unsuccessful. Mine indicated I needed to refrigerate it over night.... I think this sounds better!

  2. Ever tried unsweetened almond milk? It's creamy and delicious and would cut another 50 calories from each serving (it's only 40 cal/cup) The best-tasting brand is Blue Diamond, the refrigerated carton-- for some reason the shelf carton doesn't taste quite the same...

    Just discovered your website and am looking forward to trying some of these recipes!

  3. Can't wait to try this recipe! I need some new breakfast recipe and this one sounds perfect :)

  4. I'll have to try this out, I'm always looking for a healthy yummy breakfast
