Cinnamon Oatmeal Smoothie

Nigerian oatmeal smoothie

The oatmeal smoothie recipe idea had been on my mind for a while but a conversation with my sister finally compelled me to bring it to life. My immediate elder sister is one of my inspirations when it comes to being creative with food and trying out new recipes. She is what you would call an adventurer when it comes to cuisine. We were having one of our sister sister chats when she shared that she was having an oatmeal smoothie for breakfast; she kept raving about how good it was and surprisingly I had been surfing the internet prior to our call looking for a recipe that i could work with. Need I say more,  I had all the conviction I needed and went ahead to make this recipe which I’m sharing with you today.
