I am a smoothie junkie.  It’s such a great way to start the day, staving off hunger, yet not weighing you down and making you sleepy.  My favorite smoothies include Sweet Green Smoothies, Peach Pie Smoothies, or a spicy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie.  Each is full of protein, fiber, and most of all, flavor!

This chocolate peanut butter banana oatmeal smoothie reminds me of a peanut butter oatmeal cookie.  It is sweet and fruity with just a hint of cinnamon.

Ingredients Needed

  • Chocolate protein powder – use a low sugar variety that you enjoy.
  • Oatmeal – use the old-fashioned kind like Grandma used to make.  Don’t buy the little packets.  They’re full of sugar and much more processed.  The oatmeal is going to add body and thickness to the smoothie, plus a very healthy dose of fiber!
  • Banana – cut it up and freeze it.  By using a frozen banana, you won’t have to add so many ice cubes.
  • Chocolate almond milk – I like using unsweetened chocolate almond milk when I can find it, but you can use any kind that you like.
  • Greek yogurt – this gives the smoothie a lovely tanginess.  It also adds more protein.  I used plain for this recipe, but I’ve also used vanilla or banana yogurt in the past with great results.
  • Peanut butter – I used Skippy, just because it’s my favorite, but any peanut butter works well.  Use a brand that you enjoy.  Just make sure that it’s creamy.  Chunky peanut butter ruins the consistency of the smoothie.
  • Honey – for sweetness.  You could also use maple syrup, agave syrup, sugar, or stevia.
  • Cinnamon
  • Kosher salt – don’t skip the pinch of salt.  It brings out the flavor of the oatmeal and enhances the flavor of the smoothie.  Your smoothie will taste flat without this little bit of salt.
