Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

Oatmeal Banana Smoothie

I’m not lying in the slightest when I say we have one of these every single night.Β It’s almost silly how much we’re obsessed with these smoothies.

But, I will say, it’s done wonders keeping me on track with my weight. It’s the perfect healthy craving catcher when I need something sweet!

Oh, and I know I put a straw in these photos, but that’s just because they photograph so well. WeΒ alwaysΒ eat these smoothies with a spoon because it’s so nice and thick, like semi-melted ice cream!

Chocolate chips on top (or M&M’s if you’re feeling really adventurous) are a necessity. Seriously, the perfect little treat!

So, there ya go. Now you know my secret to not being 100 pounds overweight. πŸ™‚ Otherwise, I’d be in the ice cream every night.

You’re welcome.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie


  • 6 ounces milk (skim or almond is what we like)
  • 8-13 three quarter-inch frozen banana slices (about 1 frozen medium/large banana) ***
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats


  1. In a blender, such as the Blendtec, blend all the ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Enjoy plain or with some chocolate chips!


  • When I make them, I pour the milk into the Blendtec and put the frozen banana slices in, making sure they are iceburging out of the milk (You know, there are enough banana slices in the milk with some sticking out of the milk) to make the perfect smoothie.

Servings: 1 large or 2 small smoothies


  1. I have smoothies every day, too. But peanut butter banana… aww, man. That’s like the best smoothie ever and I can’t have it because of the stupid bananas.

    I made a peanut butter banana chocolate smoothie the other day. I was feeling rebellious. Then I got sick. But it was SO good!

    1. Erin, I hear you. I can’t tolerate bananas either. I have been able to substitute frozen mango chunks in similar recipes for good results. Maybe you could try that? Would be more of a PBJ kind of taste!

  2. I love having smoothies for dessert, and this one looks awesome!! Love the banana and pb combo – need to try this asap πŸ™‚ Oh, and your photos? Seriously gorgeous!

  3. I always put oatmeal in my smoothies now – it thickens them up so nicely and adds a great texture, not too mention makes ’em more filling + adds some healthiness points. These look fantastic! And much better for you than a nightly bowl of ice cream, that’s for sure! =)

    1. I forgot to mention I also added about a teaspoon of Chia Seeds. With the seeds I calculated the drink to be about 425 calories.

      1. Thank you for the wonderful feedback! πŸ˜€ It’s our favorite! To make it less caloric, you can always decrease the amount of both peanut butter and oats. They’re both better calories than if you were to eat 400 calories of ice cream! At least this is protein, vitamins and good-for-you stuff…minus the chocolate chips. πŸ˜‰

  4. This is fantabulous! I made it this morning for the first time, and I used dark chocolate peanut butter so I wouldn’t need the M&Ms to satiate my chocolate need. πŸ™‚ It’s a good option for me right now, too, because my gums are swelled from getting eight teeth crowned, and this soothes them without my having to chew anything. Major bonus there. πŸ™‚

  5. Saw this on Pinterest and just tried it out — YUM!! I love that I have all these ingredients on hand.
    The one problem: I got so excited to drink my smoothie that actually forgot to put the chocolate chips in (it was delicious without). Looks like I will just have to make another one soon! πŸ˜‰
    Thank-you for the recipe!

    1. Oh, yay! I’m so glad you enjoyed it Beth! It’s such a great smoothie…and just wait until you add the chocolate chips. πŸ˜‰ Yum!

    1. The frozen banana is the key to a cold and soft-serve-like smoothie. πŸ˜€ Otherwise, you’d have to add crushed ice and it’d be more like an icy milkshake. The frozen banana is the magic in this smoothie! πŸ˜€

  6. Your smoothie seems divine. As a smoothie aficionado and fitness junkie, I must put this in my “smoothie rotation”. I am curious….. can you develop smoothie recipes with Moringa (Superfood)? I would love to share with consumers of NutriMinz if possible…

    1. Thank you Carlos! I’ve never heard of Moringa before. I’m sure I could figure something out, though! πŸ˜€

    1. I just spotted that at Whole Foods! I’ll definitely have to pick some up next time I’m there! πŸ™‚

  7. I actually have one of these every morning! Except I add a tablespoon of raw cocoa;) Sometimes I soak my oats overnight in almond milk also. I have heard it helps the body digest it better? IDK. But it is Delicious!!!

    1. So delicious! I’ve never heard that, but it totally makes sense. I bet it makes for an even more creamy smoothie, too! πŸ˜€

  8. this is a great recipe i was looking for a recipe for my practical food technology assignment and this came up now i cant wait to make it.

  9. Thank You for sharing your peanut butter banana smoothie recipe . . .yum!
    Also, (just an fyi) I substitute the skim or almond milk with low fat /skim chocolate milk once in awhile . . yum, also!

  10. I was in a hurry to get to school and wanted to make a quick and easy smoothie so I went to Pinterest as always and found the link to this recipe. I made it and feel in love! It’s so good and the perfect amount of everything! Highly recommended. I never leave comments after a recipe but this was a must! I honestly had to make another when I got home!

      1. Do you happen to know the carb count on this without the chocolate stuff? I found the link to this recipe on a site about gestational diabetes and it said this recipe was safe but seems too high in carbs to be. Thanks!

        1. Yeah, it’s pretty high in sugar and carbohydrates because of the banana. You can leave out the oats and it still tastes delicious, too. But, if you have gestational diabetes, you may want to stay clear of bananas. Great question!

  11. for the peanut butter I use a teaspoon or two of PB2 with chocolate. It is a dried peanut butter and is much lower in calories. But the taste is divine!!!

  12. Where did you get those neat little containers to drink your smoothie from? I am sure they make the
    delicious looking smoothie even better. I will truly give it a try.
    Thanking you in advance for the information on the jars.

    1. I found these at a local antique store, but I know you can find something similar online (search glass milk bottle). Happy shopping!

  13. Does the oatmeal need to be cooked before placing in the smoothie? Or just put in dry? Can you use steel cut oats?

    1. I don’t cook it, just put it in dry. I wouldn’t use steel cut oats, though. I use quick cooking or old fashioned oats. Enjoy the smoothie!
