A delicious glass of tropical sunshine! Pineapple and banana are one of my favorite smoothie combinations. And in this recipe, the oats and flax seed add a nice thickness as well as added nutrition. Oats have a higher level of soluble fiber than other grains. Some other benefits of adding oats to your smoothie is the fact that they lower cholesterol, and are soothing to the digestive process. I like to blend the oats and flax in my liquid first, just to make sure they are pureed well. Then add your fruit...
1 banana, ripe
1/2 cup pineapple chunk, frozen
1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
1/4 cup old fashioned oats
2 teaspoons flax seeds
2 teaspoons agave nectar
