Oatmeal PB2 Banana Smoothie

 

School has officially begun.

…sigh…

To get maximum sleep-in time, I have been playing around with different smoothies for breakfast.  Yesterday was a delicious kale smoothie, today?

An oatmeal smoothie- kind of like a milkshake for breakfast

:)

 

 

Ingredients (servings- 4 large smoothies):

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

2 tbsp chia seeds

3.5 cups of milk

1 cup greek yogurt

3.5 cups applesauce (no sugar added)

2 tbsp PB2 (or peanut butter)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 ripe banana

 

A great source of protein and omega-3s with no added sugar. The smoothie is perfectly sweet from the applesauce and banana.  Delicious!

Directions:

1. Pour the oatmeal and chia seeds into a blender (flax seeds would work as well).

 

2. Blend into a flour consistency.

 

3. Add the rest of the ingredients (fills it up to the tippy top for 4 servings! this recipe is easy to cut in half or quarters).

 

4. Pour into glasses of choice.

 

5. Wrap it up and place glasses in refrigerator for at least 5 hours to allow for maximum absorption of oatmeal and chia seeds. I make mine before bed and just grab and go for the ride to work.

A delicious way to “switch up” your morning routine.
