- 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. As with all smoothies, this is a very versatile recipe. Swap out the chia seeds for flax seeds or hemp seeds. Use almond milk or water instead of coconut milk. Toss in some raw almonds or egg white powder for added protein.
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.
