My Peanut Butter-Banana & Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe

I wanted to post my latest smoothie recipe.  I normally don’t rely on recipes.  I tend to just toss a bunch of things together & hope for the best.  This turned out to be fantastic.  This is my post-workout smoothie.  Enjoy!  🙂

Peanut Butter-Banana & Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe

8 oz. unsweetened coconut or almond milk

1/4 cup oats

2 Tbsp. ground flax seeds

2 Tbsp. PB2 powdered peanut butter

1/2 banana

2 ice cubes

Put the coconut milk in first, along with the ice cubes & just toss everything else in.  Enjoy!  If you try this, let me know what you think!  If you like it thicker, use a whole banana, a bit more ice & 1/2 cup of oats instead of 1/4 cup.
