These Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothies make the ultimate breakfast to-go. Not only is it healthy, but it’s delicious, filling and ready in less than 5 minutes! Your mornings just got a little bit easier.
YOU GUYS. I have to share this post with you before anything else (like those chicken wings I keep promising) because I love it so much. I have a new breakfast obsession. I know, I know. I say that every time I make something new for breakfast. Every. Time. It’s a problem. What’s not a problem? Sucking down one of these awesome strawberry banana oatmeal smoothies every morning.
They are bangarang. I LOVE them. And these oatmeal smoothies are so easy to make it’s not even funny. They’re perfect for those busy mornings where you need something quick to-go and don’t have time to sit and eat something. Like, not even 5 minutes. I know most of you have many-a-morning like that.
I’ve got plenty of mornings like that and I’m home. Ha! I’ll take my strawberry banana smoothie – to go. To go do the dishes, feed my kids, change some diapers, clean up x1000. You get it. So while I’m not physically going somewhere every morning, I’m still very much on the go.
That’s where these super fantastic strawberry banana oatmeal smoothies come in. They take a few minutes to make – pour it, drink it, breakfast is done and done. The oatmeal is hearty and filling and makes these smoothies nice and thick. Surprisingly thick. It’s almost like I’m drinking a shake (but not as sweet).
They’re wicked satisfying. Bonus – it keeps me full until lunch. AAANNDD they’re healthy too. Oatmeal, strawberries, bananas and coconut are all great-for-you foods. There’s a little bit of honey and a splash of vanilla extract for sweetness and flavor but no dairy and no refined sugars. Don’t you just love that?!
So do yourself a favor and make one of these bad boys tomorrow morning. Or any morning but especially the morning you hit the snooze button one time too many, ahem…Adam.
