Blueberry-Banana-Oatmeal Smoothie

Blueberry-Banana-Oatmeal Smoothie

Blueberries are a good source of fiber and naturally occurring antioxidants. If you are lactose intolerant or dairy products upset your stomach, you can substitute lactose-free milk for the low-fat milk.

The amount of oats in this recipe can be increased. Because the oats affect the texture, however, start with 1 tablespoon and add more as you develop a taste for it.
