Chocolate peanut butter oatmeal smoothie



Estimated Reading Time < 1 Minutes

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.

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.
