Get a complete breakfast of nutritious fruits, protein and whole grains in this Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie. It’s simple to pull together in the mornings for a delicious breakfast smoothie you can drink on the go.
I don’t like my oatmeal overly sweet, and I don’t want my smoothies to be that way, either. So I rarely add a sweetener (unless it’s a bit of honey) because I like my fruits as they are, thank you very much. The banana sweetens this up nicely, and the yogurt helps, too.
And if you forgot to freeze your blueberries and bananas the night before, don’t worry. Just add a half a cup or cup of ice to the mix and toss in a few more blueberries to boost the flavor after it gets “watered down” from the ice.
Kids love this recipe, too, so if your kiddo isn’t keen on oatmeal, it’s a great way to sneak some in!
