Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie is perfect for those busy mornings. 5 simple ingredients, a quick blend and you are ready for your day. I love making these before my morning workouts, they keep me full and give me plenty of energy!

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!

TIPS & TRICKS:

  • 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.

  1. How many calories does this smoothie have

    1. Hi Charlene, I currently do not have the nutrition background to post the calorie count, but you can sign up for a free My Fitness Pall account at https://www.myfitnesspal.com/ and enter the recipe in and it will give you a calorie count a nutritional breakdown! Hope you enjoy the smoothie!

  2. What kind f oatmeal do you use ?

    1. Hi Colleen, I use old fashioned oats but any kind of steel cut or instant oats will work as well!

  3. What if you don’t like nutbutter?

    1. Hi Juana! If nut butter doesn’t work for you you could try seed butter, specifically sunflower seed butter would taste great in this smoothie!
      Thanks,
      Lauren

  4. I have to say that this is my favorite smoothie! So quick and easy and delicious. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

    1. Thank You so much Rachel! 🙂

  5. I know this may seem like a silly question.. lol but do you make the oatmeal first or just put in the oats to the blender?

    1. Just put the oats straight into the blender!

  6. If you don’t want to use peanut butter, would a handful of unsalted roasted peanuts (or other seeds/nuts) work just as well? What about using another fruit (berries)? Bananas are not my favorite.

  7. Saw this on Pinterest. I do a similar smoothie in the morning many times and it is very kid friendly. Easy to add things like raw spinach and flaxseed for extra nutrition and no change in taste. Taste good also with rice milk if people are dairy free.

  8. Hello. I’m really looking forward to having this very soon. Do you put the old fashioned oats right from the container or cook the oats first. This looks so delis and sp pretty. Thank you!

    1. Hi Sandy! You put the oats straight into the Smoothie uncooked. Hope you enjoy!

  9. I found this recipe interesting. But the sugar content is too high . How come it has 25 g sugar? All I see is one banana which is sweet.

    1. Hi there, Nutritional data is automated, final nutritional information will depend on ingredients used and any changes made. So different kinds of peanut butter and milk might hold different amounts of sugar depending on what kind you use. Thanks.

  10. I have made this multiple times now. Usually I dont use icecubes, i have frozen banana instead. I Also use regular dairy milk. Works fine.

    I Think this is close to my New favorit breakfast

    1. Great idea using a frozen banana!

  11. Have you tried making enough of it one day for the week?

    1. Hey Amanda, I don’t think making it ahead of time would work because it would separate. Unless you plan on freezing it, you might be able to freeze it in an ice cube tray and then re-blend it when you want it.

  12. Oh this is great ! Sooo good . A new twist to my Oatmeal and fruit breakfast.

    1. Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!
