Ann's Tips and Tricks

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.
