OAT SMOOTHIE RECIPE 

You might be thinking – oats?

And yes, they are a great addition to smoothies.

I love adding them to this Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie and today’s Oat Smoothie Recipe. 

Oats help to thicken the smoothie.

You can dump rolled oats straight into the blender.

They help keep you full and give you energy thanks to the fiber!

My kids think that this smoothie tastes like a milkshake and I have to agree with them.

They think it tastes like an oatmeal cookie.

It is the perfect start to  busy mornings.

The frozen banana helps create a creamy texture otherwise you can use a regular banana.

If you don’t have frozen bananas and want a creamier smoothie I suggest adding ice cubes.

I like this smoothie because it has calcium, potassium and protein to help start our day or get us over the afternoon slump.

ARE OATS HEALTHY?

Yes they are! Oats are a good source of carbs and fiber, including the powerful fiber beta-glucan.

They also contain more protein and fat than most whole grains.

Oats are packed with vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc, Vitamin B1 and B5 and Manganese.

OTHER OPTIONS TO ADD TO SMOOTHIES:

CHIA SEEDS: Chia seeds are optional but add antioxidants, protein and fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

HEMP SEEDS: Do you use hemp seeds? They are great in smoothies and they are packed with so much power. 1 Tablespoon of those small seeds is 5 grams of protein.

That will help keep you feeling full and give you the energy you need. I suggest adding it to your smoothies if you have it on hand!

NUT BUTTER: Nut butters are another great way to add protein and help the texture of the smoothie.

I find if my smoothie is too thin that adding a few Tablespoons or almond of peanut butter will help thicken it. 

SPIRULINA: Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water. One Tablespoon of spirulina  of dried spirulina powder contains protein, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B3, copper and iron.

This is another powerhouse ingredient you can add.

PROTEIN POWDER: If you are looking to up your protein in-take, for example after workouts, try protein powder. There are a lot of varieties in the stores now and some are even flavored. 

FRUIT: Fruit is always a great add-in like frozen strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, mango and oranges.
