Avena – Healthy Oatmeal Shake
Breakfast on the go? This quick shake is healthy and delicious!
My daughter loves Avena and requests it for breakfast at least 3 times a week. It’s nutritious, high in fiber, lowers cholesterol and tastes delicious! Avena is a very popular cold beverage in many Latin countries, here’s my healthy skinny version. You can even double it and call it a meal.
