Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Smoothie | Easy Oats Recipe
This smoothie has become my favorite breakfast for now. This has all the goodness of oats, fruits and the necessary calcium and protein that keeps me filled without making me feel heavy. Usually when I make oatmeal for breakfast, no matter what some gets left over and when I get back home after dropping the kids in school, I’m not sure about you all but the look of the oatmeal is a sticky gooey mass which in short looks “Yuck” to me. This smoothie just happened when I was pondering over how to put that leftover super cold oatmeal to good use, as I did not have the heart to dump it right away into the sink.
Also my MIL wanted to what else to make using oats as they have been advised to include more oats into their diet. Since it always just a porridge that she know to make, I bought a jumbo pack of oats and have demonstrating her on the recipes that could be rustled up with the super grain called oats. I must say that she was super impressed with the recipes. So you will be seeing a lot of recipes with oats in the near future.
Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Smoothie
- Cooked oatmeal – 1 cup
- Banana – 1
- Yogurt / Curd – 1/4 cup
- Milk – 1/2 to 3/4 cup
- Almonds – 8 to 10
- Honey – 2 to 3 tbsp
- Ice cubes – 5 to 6
Soak the almonds in little hot water and remove the skin.
Place the almonds in a blender and pulse it coarsely.
Add the rest of ingredients and blend together well.
Pour into tall glasses and Serve. I just added a blob of melted chocolate on top.
I normally do not add ice cubes but instead use chilled yogurt and milk.
- You can avoid honey and instead add dates syrup if you have which will make it even more healthy.
- When making this for my kids I add a tsp of vanilla essence which gives it a milkshake sort of flavor. This is also to avoid my younger one from detecting banana.
- You can adjust all the ingredients to your taste and the consistency you prefer.
