YES! Oatmeal is highly nutritious, versatile and provides this shake with body. I had some frozen organic peaches in the freezer and some raw oats whcih I had soaked overnight to both soften and release the enzymes. I whipped this together. LOVED the outcome. You can use fresh peaches in season too, but I would recommend adding a few ice cubes. I used raw oatmeal, which is best soaked overnight, but you could use rolled oats for instant gratification. The cinnamon and the nutmeg adds extra depth. I always use a pinch of sea salt to enhance the sweetness of the fruit.
To make it easier… You can use leftover cooked oatmeal.
