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 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!Print
