How to make banana oatmeal smoothie with peanut butter and cinnamon?
- Blend the ingredients
Place the oats, banana, peanut butter, chia seeds, cinnamon, carob powder, and oat milk in a blender and blend until you get consistency with a silky smooth and creamy texture. Taste and add additional sweetener (maple syrup or agave syrup) if you like to make your smoothie sweeter.
- Serve and enjoy
Pour your smoothie into a glass or jar and enjoy immediately. You can top it with homemade granola, or a drizzle of creamy peanut butter if you like, to make it even richer. Enjoy!
Yes, you can store your smoothie in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Sure, raw oats are completely safe to eat. You can put raw oats in your smoothies to boost their nutritional content and make them more filling. Uncooked oats are entirely edible and are a great addition to any smoothie. Just be sure to use unflavored oats, since pre-flavored packages of oatmeal can contain added sugars and various preservatives. My advice - always check the labels to see what you are buying.
No, you don't need to soak oats before blending them into a hearty smoothie. For a smoother texture, you can first put them in the blender alone and blitz a few times until they are finely ground. Or you can directly throw them in with the rest of the ingredients and blend everything together until you get the desired consistency.
Rolled oats are always my first choice for my smoothie blends even though quick (instant) oats work well, too. Because steel-cut oats have a thick and chewy texture it is better to save them for your oatmeal bowls.
Absolutely! This oatmeal smoothie is packed with essential nutrients your body needs for energy, and vitality.
