    Very tasty breakfast in a glass! I made it with 2% milk and plain Greek non-fat yogurt. You'd never know it was a healthy drink. Delicious, and two big health bonuses!

    Made for the first time today and loved it! Like other reviewers I used FROZEN banana, and I also added a handful of almonds. So yummy!

    I made this one this morning. It tasted great, but I would add frozen banana chunks because the drink was not cold enough for me.

    I tried it and it's delicious! But I cooked the oatmeal and I was wondering if you did that too or it was unbacked?

    I added 5 ice cubes because I like my smoothies cold and I usually use frozen fruit. We didn't have plain yogurt so I used vanilla yogurt and vanilla soymilk in place of the milk. I omitted the honey. It cam out creamy, refreshing, and delicious! This smoothie is a great pick me-up or breakfast. It is filling!

    I love this smoothie and often have it for breakfast. I am in the UK and keep meaning to convert the measurements but luckily I have a trusty measuring device that can measure in cups! I have adapted this recipe slightly, using half milk and half soya mill (1/4 cup of each) or sometimes just all soya milk. I replace honey with agave nectar and add in a scoop of unflavoured protein powder to compliment my gym sessions. Sometimes i add a tablespoon of peanut butter. It tastes absolutely delicious!

    I loved this recipe, but my kids wouldn't drink it. The texture is odd — it's full of little flecks of oats — and that totally turned them off. Great taste, though.
