Oatmeal Banana Bread Smoothies

These Oatmeal Banana Bread Smoothies are delicious, nutritious, and perfect for a quick-and-easy breakfast or snack!

If you like banana bread, you’re going to love these good-for-you smoothies. They’re cold, thick, creamy, sweet with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla, and the oats make them surprisingly filling and satisfying!

I’m always excited to share a new smoothie recipe!

I mean is there anyone who doesn’t love sipping on a delicious drink that seems like an indulgent treat but is actually full of healthy ingredients?

Smoothies are especially perfect for busy mornings when there’s little time for breakfast. You can whip up one up in record time and even take it with you when you’re on the go!

Or maybe you’re like me and don’t always want a big breakfast first thing in the morning or you want a pick-me-up before your morning walk or workout.

They also make a great afternoon or after-school snack!

I’m a big fan of creamy smoothies, and I have a smoothie base that I use to make most of my smoothies, which consists of almond milk, yogurt, banana, and pure maple syrup for natural sweetness.

From there, I add other ingredients like fruit, oats, vanilla, spices, and even veggies depending on the flavor I want to make.

For this banana bread smoothie, I add an extra banana, oats, vanilla, and cinnamon to my base recipe to make it taste like my favorite Banana Bread Muffins. Wow, what a winner!

Tips & Tidbits:

  • Keep a bag of frozen bananas in the freezer for making smoothies whenever you want! The more ripe they are, they sweeter they will be!
    • To freeze bananas, peel them first (trying to get the peel off of a frozen banana is the worst!), put them whole into a freezer bag, remove as much air as you can from the bag, and freeze. For best results, use within 1 to 2 months.
  • I prefer to use unsweetened almond milk, but you can use your favorite milk, such as oat milk, cashew milk, soy milk, and even regular milk.
  • Non-fat plain Greek yogurt is my favorite for its extra protein, thicker texture, and lower calories, but any yogurt – Greek or regular, whole milk, low-fat, or non-fat, plain or vanilla – will work.
  • Feel free to adjust the amount of maple syrup to suit your own tastes.
    • I will admit that we love maple syrup in our house (we actually make it ourselves!) and usually go with the full 2 tablespoons. Depending on how sweet your bananas are, or if you don’t have a sweet tooth or are trying to cut back on sugar, you might want to start with less (or none) and add more if needed.
  • Smoothies are so easy to adapt, and they are a great way to sneak in some other healthy ingredients, such as chia seeds, flaxseeds, and more.
  • Want a chocolate version? Add a tablespoon of cocoa powder to the mix. Yum!
