This Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie is a healthy, protein packed and filling breakfast perfect for busy mornings.
I am all about my breakfast smoothies lately. Or any oatmeal smoothie recipes for that matter! Actually, I love them for lunch too. But this smoothie is, by far, one of my favorites.
Peanut butter and banana is such a great flavor combo, as witnessed by my peanut butter banana bread. I just love the nutty sweetness. And adding in the honey is like making my favorite sandwich in liquid form. Peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches, anyone?!
This peanut butter banana oatmeal smoothie makes are really hearty breakfast without much work. The oats make this smoothie filling and will keep you satisfied for quite a while. Adding oats into my smoothies are one way I like to enjoy a healthy breakfast (or quick lunch) on the go. Sometimes you just don’t even have time to sit and eat something with a spoon. Sad but true.
I used peanut butter powder in this oatmeal smoothie. It’s a fun new product I found when shopping at the wholesale store when I was stocking up on coconut oil and other products that are outrageously expensive at my regular grocery store.
Peanut butter powder is basically dehydrated peanut butter. The oil is removed and you’re left with a powder that tastes just like peanut butter. You can add water to it to turn it back into a spread or use it as is in baked goods or smoothies like this. By removing the oil, you get a peanut butter with less fat and calories. It’s kind of a neat idea and I get sucked into things like that. Hence, why I have two pounds of peanut butter powder on my counter begging to be used. I’ll pretty much be making peanut butter everything for a very long time. But that’s not really a bad thing.
If you don’t have peanut butter powder or the idea of it just freaks you out, just use 1-2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter instead. I’ve made it that way in the past, it’s just as good!
I sprinkled some extra peanut butter powder on top of my smoothie for fun but it’s totally optional. Enjoy!
