Tropical Traditions Organic Thick Rolled Oats + A "Rich" Breakfast Smoothie Recipe ! ( R+G) 1/31 ( US/ CAN)



Oats provide high quality, well-balanced protein. Thick Rolled Oats and other whole grain oats are a good source of soluble fiber. Tropical Traditions Thick Rolled Oats are most commonly used for oatmeal, and cook in about 15 minutes. Thick Rolled Oats can also be used in granola and of course oatmeal cookies.


Oats when consumed has been known to slowly release energy and is also a great source of fibre and other rich nutrients. Me and my son regularly have oats at least 2 or 3 times a week.We love it! 

Tropical Traditions' Thick Rolled Oats comes in 10lb and 5 lb bags. They taste very natural and are free from any flavours or colours or other additives. Which means, you have a lot of space to create your own recipes with oats. Cookies always cross my mind when thinking about what to do with oats. We have been having it with bananas for breakfast and they are delicious.I haven't tried them in cookies but I am pretty sure that they will be a wonderful choice.

I also stumbled on a great Banana-Oatmeal Smoothie recipe and have been making it almost everyday now! I simply boil the oats to cook them and once cooled, I use it in this smoothie.I have tweaked it a bit to suit my own taste.


Ingredients:

  • 2   whole Chiquita Bananas (best with brown flecks on peel)
  • 2   cups Ice
  • 1/3   cup Yogurt - regular 3% yogurt + 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2   cup Cooked oatmeal
  • 1/3   cup Almonds

Pour all ingredients in blender pouring ice in last. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until smoothie thickens.


The best thing about this is all natural ingredients mixed into a nutritious breakfast. The Organic Oats gives it a thick, smooth and heathy taste.

 Tropical Traditions Organic Thick Rolled Oats can be purchased for $10.69 for a 5lb bag.
