This quick and easy banana-oat smoothie has been my absolute favorite thing to make for breakfast lately. Not only is it really healthy, it’s also really satisfying. I stay feeling full for at least a couple of hours after a drink this creamy treat and that’s not normal for me when I’ve tried to get by on breakfast smoothies before.
Maybe it’s just because I know they are there, but I think the hearty old-fashioned oats that are swirled into this smoothie are what make it so filling. Okay, so when I say ‘filling’ here, I don’t mean that you will feel like you ate a plate full of biscuits for breakfast after drinking this pretty smoothie!I guess it might be best to go back to calling it ‘satisfying’ because that’s what it truly is.
Smoothies are a great way to add some variety into your morning routine and they are simply the best portable breakfast option out there, if you ask me. It takes just a bit of prep in the evening to have everything ready to swirl a healthy breakfast together before you walk out the door in the morning.
All the prep needed for this recipe is remembering to slice and freeze a banana the night before.Easy and nourishing, smoothies are also a great way to sneak some more fruit and vegetables into your kid’s daily diets in a deliciously disguised liquid form. I can say from personal experience that smoothies have helped to convince my own finicky kids to enjoy more fruit.
Even kids eat with their eyes first, so remember to pick up some pretty paper straws at the craft store and your kids will be in for a festive breakfast treat!I decided to break the ice on my YouTube Channel while my kids were at a camp on Monday morning. It’s a little rough in some places, but my hope is that these videos will get better and easier with time. 🙂 Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel it would be great to see you there!

Banana-Oat Breakfast SmoothieCourse: breakfastCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
This Banana-Oat Breakfast Smoothie is simple, delicious, nourishing and satisfying! I’m not sure one could ask a smoothie to do more! I list the prep time as 30 minutes only because the recipe assumes you will use a frozen banana, but you can substitute in a fresh banana and 1/4 cup ice to skip this step.
1 large banana, sliced and frozen (*see notes below)
1 cup milk, lowfat or nut milk of your choice
1 teaspoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
- Add all ingredients together in a a blender and mix until smooth. Enjoy!
- If you don’t want to freeze your banana or you forgot to do this, use a fresh, sliced banana and 1/4 cup ice instead!
