Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie
Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. I don’t know how people skip breakfast, because I wake up HUNGRY! My girls will actually laugh at me when they wake me up because my stomach is already growling!
Smoothies are some of my favorite quick recipes for breakfast because they pack a big nutritional punch into one glass. It’s a breakfast I feel good about eating, and it makes me feel good afterwards. Plus they taste yummy too!
You only need a few minutes to whip up this easy and filling smoothie recipe. The flavors of strawberry and banana combine for a sweet and delicious flavor, and the oatmeal makes it extra rich and filling.
This is the ultimate healthy breakfast smoothie for hectic mornings when you don’t have time to cook a big meal, but you don’t want to just grab a granola bar!
What Do Oats Do In A Smoothie?
Oatmeal smoothies are a great way to feel satisfied and add some extra nutrients into your day. Since oats are high in fiber, they keep you feeling full longer than a low-fiber breakfast. Fiber also aids in digestion, and keeps you “regular,” if you know what I mean.

For your convenience, I’ve included shop-able ad links to some of the products used to make this recipe; read our disclosure policy here.
- Rolled Oats — These may also be called “old fashioned oats.”
- Almond Milk — Feel free to use your favorite type of milk! I love plant-based milks such as almond milk, coconut milk, and oat milk, but regular dairy milk works perfectly too.
- Strawberries — You could use different berries too, such as blueberries or raspberries.
- Banana — This gives the smoothie it’s creaminess!
- Vanilla Greek Yogurt — I like Greek yogurt because it’s high in protein, but in a pinch you could use regular yogurt. If using plain, unflavored yogurt, you may want to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Helpful Kitchen Tools Used
To Prep: Peel banana and de-stem the strawberries.
- Place the oats, almond milk, banana, strawberries & yogurt into a blender.
- Blend until you have a smooth and creamy texture.
- If the smoothie is too thick (you can’t drink it through a straw), add another couple Tablespoons of milk until you have the desired consistency.
- If the smoothie is too runny, you can add more yogurt and/or fruit to thicken it up.
- For a sweeter drink, add a Tablespoon of natural sweetener, such as honey or maple syrup, before blending.
- To make this superfood smoothie even more beneficial, try adding a Tablespoon of chia seeds! Chia seeds are high in fiber and calcium, provide antioxidants, and may help with appetite control.
- Add a scoop of protein powder to make this a fantastic post-workout smoothie.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Use Quick Oats?
I generally keep rolled oats on hand because they’re less processed. They have more fiber and will make a more filling and nutritious smoothie. However, you could substitute quick oats in a pinch! Because they have less fiber and are pre-cooked, they will break down easily and the texture of your smoothie may be a little less thick.
Are Oatmeal Smoothies Gluten-Free?
Oatmeal generally is a gluten free food. However, if cross-contamination is a concern, always read the packaging to ensure that the oats are produced in a facility that does not produce foods with gluten.
Can You Make This a Dairy-Free Recipe?
Absolutely! I only keep plant milks in the house anyway because I’m lactose intolerant. However, my husband LOVES Greek Yogurt, so that’s why we have that in the fridge.
To make this recipe completely non-dairy, you will want to use a plant-based yogurt in addition to the plant-based milk. These substitutions would also make this a vegan recipe.
