Quick Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

Give your morning a boost with this quick and easy banana oatmeal smoothie recipe! It’s packed with almonds, yogurt, oatmeal and bananas to give you the energy to start your day.

Waking up and getting your day started doesn’t have to solely depend on coffee to get going. Smoothies are a great way to fuel up and get in a few servings of fruits and veggies. For endless smoothie possibilities, print out our Build Your Own Smoothie guide.

Almonds one of the world’s best sources of Vitamin E. They can lower cholesterol levels and are packed with protein, carbs and fats, helping to release energy throughout the day. Adding oatmeal to the mix, another antioxidant-rich breakfast staple, will help keep you full and maintain blood sugar levels.

Incorporating bananas into a smoothie is a tasty way to get potassium, which helps give you energy in the morning. Bananas also aid digestion and lower the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, just like the oats.

If you like your smoothies creamy, the Greek yogurt will add sweetness and create a thicker texture that provides protein and probiotics for a healthy gut. This recipe calls for honey-flavored yogurt, but feel free to switch up the yogurt at any time (vanilla is another option that fits well with this mix!)

Whether the kids are sharing, or you steal a cup before serving another, you can’t go wrong with this daily boost.
