Oats n fruity

Oats is generally considered a health food.It is said to help in lowering cholesterol levels.It has soluble fiber in it than any other grain, resulting in slower digestion and an extended sensation of fullness.I happened to see this oats & fruits drink in a TV show.Made few alterations according to the items i had to make this health drink.

This is how i made it
Oats 50 gms
Apple 1
Badam 8
Dates 4 or dry grapes 1 tsp
Sugar little
Milk 1 cup


In a heavy bottom pan add little water & milk.To this add oats,cook & cool it.Soak badam over night in water.Soak dates or dry grapes for 10 mins.Grind badam and dates/dry grapes to a fine paste.Use the water u used to soak badam to grind them as it has lot of nutrients.To this add the sliced apple & grind to a paste.To this paste add the cooked oats &sugar & grind to a thick shake.Serve chilled.

NOTE:You can avoid sugar if u don't want it sweet.
Can use any seasonal fruits like strawberry,papaya or pear.
