It’s Time to Start Your Day With Oatmeal Smoothies

This smoothie is something I’ve had in the back of my mind for practically forever – ever since 2010, when I received a press release about an oat-based breakfast drink.

I’m not actually a big smoothie person, but the idea of putting oats in one really stuck with me.

This oatmeal smoothie reminds me of a cross between the banana milkshakes that my mom use to make me and oatmeal cookies!

They’re cool and creamy, with a hint of oats, cinnamon, and vanilla.

But my favorite part is the texture – they have a perfect milkshake consistency, despite the fact that they don’t contain any ice cream!

What you’ll love about this smoothie recipe:

  • An easy on the go breakfast
  • Full of nourishing ingredients like rolled oats, Greek yogurt, and banana
  • Can easily be adapted to fit into a vegan or gluten-free lifestyle

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Milk. Whatever you have in the fridge is fine. I like to use unsweetened almond milk or skim milk.
  • Greek yogurt. Grab your favorite plain Greek yogurt. I use 0% Chobani or Fage. You can also use a dairy-free yogurt if you want.
  • Banana. For that delightfully creamy texture.
  • Rolled Oats. Raw oats add nutrients to this oatmeal smoothie and make it nice and thick. To keep this smoothie gluten-free, be sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
  • Raisins. These add a touch of sweetness and that classic oatmeal raising cookie flavor.
  • Brown Sugar. For a little more sweetness and a caramel flavor. You can use maple syrup or a date instead if you avoid processed sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract.
  • Ground Cinnamon.
  • Ice cubes.

Tips and Tricks:

You can use frozen banana in this oatmeal, but I prefer using a fresh, ripe banana for a smoother texture.

Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to help you power thought your day!

A lot of people have told me they love topping their oatmeal smoothie with a teaspoon of drippy, natural peanut butter.

  1. Made this before work today. Quick, nutritious, filling, and delicious!!! May try adding some ginger next time too 🙂

  2. I want to try this in the morning – so much more portable than breakfast with a spoon! Do you think cottage cheese would work in place of yogurt? It’s what I have on hand. Thanks!

    • I honestly have no idea. I’m not really a fan of cottage cheese, so I’ve never tried it in a smoothie. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

    • The vitamix will puree anything soft extremely thoroughly, cottage cheese will not be a problem. The only possible complication is that the mixture may heat up more than you want. Counteract that problem by freezing at least one of the ingredients as ice cubes first, before blending.
