You love the heartiness of a wholesome bowl of oatmeal, but you also crave the cold and refreshing flavor and ease of sipping on a smoothie. Both breakfasts are quick, so how do you decide? Now you don’t have to. This recipe is like overnight oats and a smoothie all in one.
This smoothie is packed with 10 grams of fiber, so it will seriously keep you full all morning long, which is perfect if you’re trying to lose weight. It also offers over 14 grams of protein all for under 18 grams of sugar.
Just soak the oats overnight in your blender container, and in the morning add the frozen banana and ice cubes, whip it up and you’ve got the ultimate creamy, milkshake-like smoothie. Yes, soaking the oats overnight is a must, because if you just add regular rolled oats to your blender, the texture isn’t quite as smoothe and silky. Plus prepping the night before saves time in the morning.
