Ripe bananas and natural peanut butter create an addictive, salty-sweet flavor combo in this protein-packed smoothie– perfect for breakfast or any time of the day.
Hi. 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.
Aside 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.
Speaking 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.
Thanks 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.
What is your favorite no-cook breakfast recipe?? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
