There are a few things that you need to know about this Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie:

How to make this Classic Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie
Start by blending the rolled oats into a flour-like texture. Next, simply combine the peanut butter, greek yogurt, almond milk (frozen into ice cubes), protein powder, and honey. Blend until smooth and enjoy!

- If you don’t have almond milk frozen in an ice cube tray, simply use regular almond milk and freeze the entire smoothie in mason jars for later and easy smoothies throughout the week!
- Feel free to use peanut butter powder to save on calories.
- This is the best protein powder to use!
- Honey can be omitted or replaced with a sweetener of choice.
- The amount of oats can be adjusted depending on how thick you want the smoothie to be!
Why you need oats in your smoothie
Rolled oats are loaded with nutrition, making them great for adding to your smoothie! Some of the benefits include high fiber, healthy carbs, and antioxidants. Balanced with healthy fats and protein, adding oats to your smoothie makes for a filling and healthy meal!
