When I think smoothie, I think greens and fruit. Our typical green smoothie is 3/4 spinach, 1 banana, 1 cup frozen fruit, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, ice, and water.
However, this is not that smoothie.
I was inspired when I was reading a Women’s Healthy Magazine to make this. Besides having awesome at-home exercises and relationship ideas, I really like their healthy food ideas. They had this peanut butter oatmeal smoothie idea and I knew I had to put together a recipe.
This is super easy and filling. It’s nice to have a breakfast where you’re not starving again at 10. Just writing about this makes me excited to make one. Banana and peanut butter, bulked by oatmeal and chia seeds. Seriously, it’s so good. I might just have to have one tonight!
- 1 cup oatmeal (quick or regular)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 banana
- 1 cup soy or almond milk (or 1 cup water**)
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 cup water
- Mix everything in your blender. Drink and enjoy your morning.
- **If you're looking to cut some of the calories of the drink, use water in place of the milk. I have made it this way many times and it's still amazing.
