Is it a smoothie?  Or a milkshake?  I’m not quite sure, but this is my go-to breakfast most mornings.  It’s quick and easy, and the oatmeal makes it surprisingly filling.  At just under 200 calories, it’s a great low-fat, vegan breakfast option.

banana oatmeal smoothie

You’re gonna need:

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk
  • 2 TBSP Oatmeal
  • 1 Cup Ice
  • 1 TSP Stevia (optional)

I use unsweetened Almond Breeze and McCann’s, but if you have celiac you will want an oatmeal that is certified gluten-free.  (McCann’s may have traces of gluten, but certifies that it’s under 5%.)


To handle uncooked oatmeal, you’ll need a high-powered blender like the Blendtec or Vitamix,  Otherwise, you can soak the oatmeal overnight to make it softer.



Wanna kick it up a notch?  Add in some peanut butter and cocoa powder for a chocolaty treat.  Beware, though. You may need to make enough to share
