3 min read


Ripe bananas and natural peanut butter create a salty-sweet flavor combo in this protein-packed Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie. It’s perfect for breakfast or any time of the day.

Peanut butter banana oatmeal smoothie.

Aside from maybe chocolate, few foods taste better with freshly-roasted, salty peanut butter than a perfectly ripe banana. And aside from maybe pancakes, the best breakfast consists of smoothies. My Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie combines the best of both worlds and is morphed into a well-rounded breakfast thanks to yogurt, milk, and oats.

Ingredients

  • Banana: Naturally sweetens the smoothie and adds a creamy texture.
  • Milk: Use whatever milk you have on hand, any and all will work.
  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is higher in protein than typical yogurt, and adds to the creamy texture of the smooothie.
  • Oats: I use old-fashioned oats, and they make the smoothie more filling while being a great source of fiber, calcium, and iron.
  • Peanut butter: A huge source of protein, while also being creamy, delicious, and nutty.
  • Cinnamon: Sweet and woody in flavor, cinnamon is a great way to get many antioxidants.
