Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

I wanted to try something different with my smoothies, so I decided to make an oatmeal one. Even though it’s higher in calories, I am using wholesome ingredients and it is a bit more filling than just a fruit smoothie.

I like to pack my smoothies with extra fiber and protein by adding Greek yogurt, chia seeds and flax seeds. I use almond milk because I stopped drinking dairy milk to reduce calories and fat. I don’t normally drink an entire smoothie, especially when it’s this high in calories, so I put half in the fridge for the next day.
