“I’ve always been a breakfast eater, and I generally eat Cheerios for breakfast, but I like them even better in this great-tasting smoothie.” Kevin W.
Besides being very refreshing, this smoothie contains cholesterol-lowering oats and flaxseed—so beneficial for heart health—and is a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. What more could you ask of any breakfast food?
