What better way to get your morning going than with this banana oatmeal smoothie?

This smoothie is LOADED with essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs and tastes amazing!

Each main ingredient has a plethora of health benefits to share:

  • BananasBananas contain a good amount of fiber and antioxidants as well as protein, potassium, magnesium and vitamins B6 and C.

The potassium in bananas provide vasodilatation properties, which are key to lowering blood pressure. Potassium also helps prevent loss of muscle mass and supports the preservation of bone density.

Along with the other nutrients, potassium also helps support heart health. Research has even shown that increasing your intake of potassium can lower your risk of stroke.

  • OatmealThere is a reason why oatmeal is healthy for breakfast; it contains minerals such as thiamin, zinc, iron and magnesium.

It is also high in fiber, low fat and high in protein, which are great for keeping you feeling full and helping you lose weight. Oats are also naturally gluten-free. 

  • AlmondsAlmonds are great for you too! Almonds are low fat and are high in energy, fiber and protein. They are also loaded with essential minerals such as zinc, calcium and sodium.

Almonds do not contain any cholesterol, making them healthy to eat and can help in maintaining a healthy heart. They are even high in antioxidants.

A study was conducted with 60 male smokers who were given three ounces of almonds over a four week period. At the end of the four-week period, their oxidative stress markers were lower, showing just how amazing the effects of the antioxidants are in almonds.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
