Health Benefits of an Oatmeal Smoothie

All of the wholesome ingredients in this oatmeal smoothie come together for a healthy and nutritious drink that benefits your digestive system and boosts your heart health.

With irresistible oatmeal cookie flavors, this fiber-packed oatmeal banana smoothie will keep you full for hours and is the perfect start to your day.


If you have a bunch of ripe bananas, you won’t need refined sugar to sweeten this oatmeal smoothie. Banana adds a delightfully sweet flavor without causing your blood sugar to spike. With low-glycemic sugars and pectin, bananas offer the perfect way to thicken your smoothie and lend a creamy texture along with the perfect amount of sweetness.

This recipe calls for frozen bananas, but you can use fresh if that’s all you have. Make sure to add a few ice cubes if using fresh bananas. Frozen bananas will give your smoothie a creamier, thicker texture. To freeze ripe bananas, peel them, cut them in chunks, and place the chunks in a resealable freezer bag. You can also freeze the chunks on a baking sheet for an hour, then place the frozen chunks in a resealable freezer bag to keep the chunks separated.


Oatmeal is loaded with fiber. Not only is the fiber in oatmeal filling, it also helps to lower ldl (bad) cholesterol levels. Fiber is vital to a healthy diet, and the gut-friendly fiber in oatmeal keeps your digestive system running smoothly.

Coconut milk

Coconut milk is high in healthy fats and is a tasty alternative to dairy milk. It adds loads of creaminess to this oatmeal banana smoothie while filling you up and nourishing your gut. Coconut milk is one of the best dietary sources of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which helps to improve heart health and curb the appetite.


Not only does cinnamon add a nice cozy flavor, it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is full of beneficial antioxidants. Cinnamon is one of our favorite spices to add to smoothies!

    I’ve made this smoothie almost every day for the past two weeks. I like it to be more like thick milk (versus a smoothie) so I can quickly slurp it down, so I use a non-frozen ripe banana and add ice when blending to make it cold. My toddler godson tried it for his afternoon snack and loved it too. Thanks for a wonderful, simple recipe.

    vitamix link to deal doesn’t work

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Oh no, sorry about that Kim! These deals are dependent on timing and inventory and Vitamix may be all out of the blender that was listed in Jen’s secret deal. Def sign up for our newsletters if you haven’t already; we often team up with Vitamix to offer special deals on their awesome blenders! 🙂

  3. Rachel says:

    My new favorite smoothie. I used Almond Milk, which I normally have in the house rather than Coconut. Thinking of adding some cocoa for a chocolate version.

  4. Sam says:

    Can’t wait to try this! Is it okay to have this banana oatmeal smoothie EVERYDAY? Keep rawking on!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hey Sam! Sure, you can drink the same smoothie every day if you like! But def check out our other awesome smoothie recipes if you decide to mix it up and try some different ones!

  5. Julia says:

    This smoothie is amazing! It was like dessert. I seriously almost licked the blender clean. I followed the recipe, but didn’t get more than 8 ounces out of it, the recipe says 16. Not sure what I did wrong.

    • Jen Hansard says:

      So glad you loved it— it’s really, really good! And you didn’t do anything wrong Julia. We had an issue with the serving size with the recipe card. I just went in and fixed that and now it should get you that full 2 cups of goodness. Keep on rawkin’ girl!

  6. Iris says:

    Can’t wait to try this tomorrow morning

  7. Dani Mitchell says:

    I just made this smoothie for dinner— yep. Was out doiing yard work and the time flew by and I didn’t want to cook something, so I decided to embrace Smoothie Sunday. And this smoothie was AMAZING! I loved how substantial it was (def makes a good meal!). The flavors we’re nice too— great job Jen and the rawkstar team!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      That sounds like a great and simple dinner! I’ve eaten oatmeal for dinner so why not an oatmeal smoothie?! 🙂

  8. Dieta says:

    Another hit….added a touch of maple syrup and a teaspoon of almond butter….perfection….thank you.

  9. Mary says:

    Do you use canned coconut milk or boxed?

  10. Olivia says:

    This looks great! What’s your take on using peanut butter with this recipe?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      I think adding a little bit (maybe 1-2 Tbsp.) of nut butter would taste great in this smoothie! We prefer almond butter over peanut butter but I think any type of nut butter would do. 🙂

  11. Marianne says:

    It’s always nice to receive a new smoothie recipe, regardless of the day or time (it’s now 5pm here in Greece). This one looks simple and delicious. I have been adding 2 tablespoons of oats to my smoothie every day for the past 5 months in order to help lower my LDL cholesterol level (and with success).

  12. Erin says:

    Thanks for a fun smoothie recipe! I can’t wait to give this a try today.
