Banana and Oats Breakfast Smoothie

Oatmeal, a banana, peanut butter, milk, and ice cubes, are thrown into the blender and blended until smooth. Talk about easy 🙂

As simple as the ingredients are I just wanted to note that if you are using peanut butter I recommend a brand that is 100% peanuts (or make your own). For 2 reasons I recommend this, first for your health it is a good idea to avoid any sneaky sugars and/or preservatives. The second reason is the environment, most peanut butters on the market include palm oil. The production of palm oil is causing large scale deforestation pushing many animals to extinction like orangutans and tigers, to learn more check out Say No To Palm Oil. So for both of these reasons I always get Crazy Richards 100% Natural Creamy Peanut Butter, it is so yummy!

• Old Fashioned Oats, Quick Oats, or Steel Cut Oats will all work well in this smoothie

• Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie calls for peanut butter but feel free to use whatever nut/seed butter of your choosing.

• Sometimes on days where I need a little extra energy I add extra peanut butter.

• Same goes for the milk as the peanut butter, I use regular cows milk but whatever you choose will work.

• This is a single serve recipe and is most easily made with a single serve blender, although any blender will work. I have a ninja blender that works amazing, I can use the easy single serve cup in the morning and then throw on the to-go cover that came with it and take it with me.

Absolutely delicious! Made it for the first time and loved it!

I really love this recipe! I use unsweetened almond milk and natural peanut butter to cut back on sugar. I added a bit of cinnamon for a little extra flavor. This will be a regular of mine. Thanks!

I have to make this the night before as I’m up at 5:30am. Will this keep if I make it the night before?

I wouldn't recommend making it the night before as it will separate before you get a chance to drink it.

Do you have to use ice cubes? Can I just use plain water or something else? And also how long dose this drink keep you full for?

I would suggest using ice cubes because that will keep it the proper smoothie consistency. And this smoothie has a decent amount of protein and fiber which help keep people full, but each person is a little different so I can't say an exact amount of time this will keep you personally feeling full, but it seems to keep most people satisfied a few hours.
