Banana Nut Breakfast Smoothie

Description

If you are looking for a meal replacement smoothie then this recipe is for you. The rolled oats make it easy to add fiber to your smoothie without a ton of extra calories. I like to soak mine in a cup of water in the fridge before blending to soften them and give my smoothie an even smoother texture. I’m a peanut butter fanatic as always you can ditch the peanut butter, or replace with cacao or some other flavor that will make this breakfast smoothie yummy to you. With the rolled oats and flax seeds hunger is guaranteed to miss you well until the afternoon.


Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • ¼ c Rolled Oats (GF)
  • 4 tbsp Cashew Nut Butter
  • 2 c Water
  • 2 c Bananas
  • 2 tbsp Flax Seeds
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon

Instructions

Measure out the rolled oats into a cup. Fill the cup with water and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour.  Combine rest of the ingredients to the blender. Pour the rolled oats and water it has been soaking into the blender. Blend it baby.

Notes

If you have a peanut butter allergy, you can substitute the nut butters for tahini. I’ll be adding flax seeds to pretty much all of my smoothie recipes from here on out as this little seed packs a powerful punch. Flax seeds are packed with fiber, which has been shown to be effective at suppressing hunger and cravings, potentially promoting weight loss; lignans, which enhance cell function as your body burns fat; and Omega-3 fats which are normally found in meat and fish. Flax seeds are therefore a good source of Omega-3 fats for plant-based foodies, vegans or any other type of vegetarian.
