  1. In the microwave safe bowl combine the oatmeal and water.  Microwave for 1 minute on high, or cook the oats in a small saucepan until the water has been absorbed.  Set aside and let cool.
  2. In a blender combine the oatmeal, milk, banana, peanut butter, honey, nutmeg, and ice cubes, if using.  Blend until smooth.  Best if served right away.

Chef Tips

If you’re starting your day with this drink, save time by soaking the oatmeal in water overnight in the fridge.

Use a frozen banana for a creamier and cooler drink. To freeze bananas, just peel and wrap them in plastic and freeze until you are ready to use them.

For a dairy free drink, blend with soy or almond milk.
