- ¾ cup rolled oats
- ¾ cup water
- 2 frozen bananas
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1⅓ cup coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds (or 2 tablespoons peanut butter)
- Soak oats in water in a blender pitcher until oats are hydrated, 10 to 15 minutes.
- Add bananas, strawberries, coconut milk, and chia seeds to the blender; blend until smooth. Alternately, put the ingredients into a deep bowl or pot and blend with an immersion blender until smooth.
Add more coconut milk for a thinner consistency.
What others are saying
Bernardo de la Vega says:
I really enjoyed the oats in this smoothie, I am a big smoothie fan and had never thought about putting oats in my smoothie until I saw this recipe. Bananas and Strawberry always create an amazing blend. I used coconut water as I don't digest coconut milk very well.
Randall Hauk says:
I have been using rolled oats in my blueberry-kale smoothie for years now to very good effect, so I loved the idea of this. It's pretty straightforward, flavor-wise, but otherwise not quite adventurous enough for me. Might add a pinch of ground Thai chile and some yogurt for my future remix of this idea. Maybe even replace the banana with avocado.
