Its amazing how many great ideas are coming to me after just one time using my Magic Bullet.  I was surprised how incredible this smoothie tasted.  Because I used oats (regular steel cut oats – not quick cooking ones), I have to admit I was really apprehensive before taking that first sip.  I thought the oats wouldn’t grind up and it would be grainy but it was very smooth.

I really like this recipe because like my Berry Fruity Smoothie it is packed with nutrition. I used 1% chocolate milk but you could substitute an almond, soy, or even coconut milk.

BANANA OATMEAL SMOOTHIE
printable version
(I’ve listed the ingredients in the order they should be stacked in the bullet – of course in a blender you put them in opposite.)

Ingredients
1-1/2 Bananas
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter (I used 100% Natural)
2 Tbsp Greek Honey Yogurt
2 Tbsp Oats
2 Tsp Honey
4 Ice Cubes
1/3 cup 1% Chocolate Milk

Directions
For the Bullet I pulsed the cup until I didn’t hear the ice cubes cracking. You want to use a pulsing so that everything gets knocked down into the blade. I really blended this one to make sure the oats were gone – you can actually see them swirling against the cup. Stick in a smoothie straw and you’re ready for yumminess! This makes one serving. If you’re using a blender you could probably double or triple the recipe for 2-3 servings.
