Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie

Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie
Ready to tantalize your taste buds with a scrumptiously thick and creamy Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie that is healthy, delicious and super quick to make? 

Look no further! It’s also dairy-free and vegan with zero refined sugar - the perfect guilt-free indulgence!

Now, let me ask you a rhetorical question: Do you, like me, relish taking your time to rustle up an appetizing breakfast? Well, if the answer is no, then smoothies are your saviors! 

Fruit smoothies are absolutely delicious, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes you just need to switch things up and enjoy something a little more filling! 

This particular banana oat breakfast smoothie is simply divine, thanks to the unique recipe. 

It is thick and creamy with such a delicious texture distinct from your typical smoothie because it’s blended with oats, creamy yogurt and ground flaxseed meal that adds a delicious, nutty flavor to the smoothie. Shocking, right?

When it comes to the recipe, adding a tablespoon or two of flaxseed into the smoothie is a smooth move, as they say. 

Flaxseed meal is an exceptional source of protein and fiber, as well as a rich source of vitamins and minerals, making it an added bonus. 

Did I mention that bananas are the star of the show here? 

While fresh or frozen bananas work perfectly fine, frozen bananas create a dreamy creamy texture that amplifies this smoothie’s deliciousness to an entirely new level! 

So, what’s the best way to freeze bananas, according to this smoothie expert? 

Peel them and then cut them in half or thirds, depending on size, and double wrap them in plastic wrap — perfect results every time! To prepare, simply blend them right into your blender.

The added banana in this smoothie adds a hint of sweetness along with the cinnamon which is why there was no need to add any sugar or honey to this recipe. 

I mean if it tastes this GOOD without the added sugar, why throw it in?? Here, vanilla-flavored yogurt works wonders. 

But, if you don’t have any vanilla-flavored yogurt, simply adding a drop or two of vanilla extract to plain yogurt will suffice, making it an even sweeter and flavorful option for the health-conscious individual.

I am absolutely in LOVE with Silk’s NEW Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative, and you will be too! 

Not only is this a great dairy-free and vegan option, but the yogurt is super rich and creamy and tastes absolutely delicious! 

It was the perfect addition to this smoothie, but you could also throw it in your favorite dips, baked goods, or just enjoy it all on its own for breakfast in the mornings! 

Also, Silk Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative comes in five delicious flavors - plain, vanilla, strawberry, peach, and dark chocolate coconut which is my absolute favorite! 

Each single-serving has 5-6 grams of protein straight from delicious California almonds. Silk is now offering new 24 oz tubs which are great for a variety of uses! 

The other thing I love about Silk’s Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative is that they actually contain ingredients you can feel good about consuming. 

As I said before, this yogurt is vegan and dairy-free, as well as carrageenan-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free and soy-free.

Along with using the vanilla-flavored Silk Almondmilk Yogurt Alternative, I also added a half cup of Silk’s unsweetened vanilla almond milk to really bring this smoothie together! 

If you aren’t using frozen bananas, I would also suggest throwing in a few ice cubes to get that smoothie-like consistency. It just tastes much creamier in my opinion!

Feeling adventurous? Add a spoonful of peanut butter to this smoothie (or any nut butter of your choice!) for even more taste and additional protein! 

You really can’t go wrong when making a smoothie, so go ahead and customize it to match your taste preferences.

Not only is this banana oat breakfast smoothie a delicious way to start your day, but it's a great source of fiber and protein, making it an incredibly healthy option! 

And guess what? It's so easy to prepare! All you need to dedicate is 5 minutes and you can take this right out the door with you. 

Your kids will love it too! I encourage you as usual, if you make this recipe, make sure to share your photos on Instagram or Twitter hashtagging #healthiestfoodchoice so that I can see your delicious creations!
