Chocolate peanut butter oatmeal smoothie

By Julie Van Rosendaal on July 29, 2013
For the kid who says he’s not hungry, a protein-packed smoothie is a perfect way to deliver a nutrient boost before school. Nut butter and banana are a classic combo – especially sweetened with a drizzle of honey. Oatmeal adds protein and fi bre. Add a spoonful of cocoa or hazelnut spread for a chocolate boost.

To go tip: Use an insulated coffee mug to keep it cold.


1 ripe banana
1 cup (250 ml) plain yogurt
2 tbsp (30 ml) peanut or almond butter
1/2 cup (125 ml) milk, soy milk or almond milk
1/4 cup (60 ml) quick-cooking oats
1 tbsp (15 ml) cocoa (optional)
1 tbsp (15 ml) honey, or to taste


Combine all the ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Add a little extra milk if it seems too thick, or an extra drizzle of honey for sweetness.

Serves 2.
