1 medium-size very ripe banana, cut into chunks
3/4 cup fresh or frozen cut fruit, such as berries, pitted cherries, mango, peaches
3 tablespoons old-fashioned rolled oats
3 tablespoons sliced almonds
1 1/4 cups milk of choice (whole, low-fat or plant-based milk)
Combine the banana, fruit, oats and almonds in a lidded plastic container. Seal and freeze.
When ready to eat, empty the contents of the container into a blender. Add the milk and blend until smooth. (Even when well blended, the smoothie will have some texture from the oats, nuts and fruit.)
MAKE AHEAD: The pack can be frozen for a month.
