PB Banana Oatmeal Smoothie - The Lemon BowlHi. My name is Liz and I’m a peanutibutter-aholic. Specifically, I am addicted to Koeze natural peanut butter roasted locally here in Grand Rapids. It’s a problem, friends. I can’t get enough of this peanut butter made with two simple ingredients: roasted peanuts and sea salt.

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie - The Lemon BowlAside from maybe chocolate, few foods taste better with freshly roasted, salty peanut butter than a perfectly ripe banana. My Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie combines the best of both worlds and is morphed into a well-rounded breakfast thanks to yogurt, milk and oats.

Overnight Refrigerator Oats with Fresh Fruit and Honey - The Lemon BowlSpeaking of yogurt and milk, this marks the third and final easy, no-cook dairy recipe that I demonstrated at the recent Mitten Moms conference. With kids back in school and the return of hectic morning schedules, this smoothie comes together in just minutes similar to the Overnight Refrigerator Oats and Avocado Toasts shared previously.

Avocado Toast with Cottage Cheese and Tomatoes - The Lemon BowlThanks to the protein and vitamin packed dairy ingredients, all three of these breakfast ideas will give your family long lasting energy throughout the morning and avoid a mid-morning sugar crash.

    Hi, my name’s Gina, and I’m with you, I LOVE my PB!! I can’t get enough, and these photos are making me drooool. Looks amazing. And the overnight oats? I gotta try those (I tried them once and had no luck, but I will try, try again!)

    Loved all three Recipes! I think my favorite was the cottage cheese and Avocado one, I had never thought of that combo before… Really yummy. I also love the smoothie I am trying to cut calories a bit more so I would substitute the all natural PB which I Love but can be high in calories with the product PB2 since it gives the same flavor in a smoothie and still adds protein but a few calories less…as always thanks for your great Recipes and tips I love your blog!

    This recipe sounds excellent, and especially like something my husband would enjoy. We would add protein powder to it to bring up the protein levels to what we need. Looking forward to making this.

    I tried this smoothie this morning and it was great! I do have a question about the nutritional data. I’m on a special low calorie diet and when I calculated the calorie count I got 560, per serving. The only change I made was using non-fat Greek yogurt. Just curious how you calculated 294. I’m hoping I goofed somewhere because 560 is half my daily calories!

      Hi Amanda –
      Oh my goodness, this recipe should have been marked as 4 servings, not two! Please accept my apologies. As a calorie counter myself, I know how important it is to have accurate nutritional information. I do hope you forgive me. Also, I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the smoothie!!

    Hi!!! This looks amazing but I’m calorie counting and would like to know how many calories for a single smoothie?? Thank you

    This smoothie was SO good! I didn’t really follow the measurements and got a bit of a thick paste which I still ate of course but with a spoon. I used yogurt and no ice and found it more dense yet really good. Also blending with it nuts or crunchy peanut butter was a big YES. Thank you, its the perfect on the go breakfast, super filling!

    Made this with my homestay sister today, we both loved it. Instead of normal milk, we used half normal and half coconut milk and it was super creamy and delicious! Took me 40 minutes to finish the whole glass and I feel super full- I won’t be needing any midnight snacks or anything. Thanks for this awesome recipe!
