Because adding oats seals the deal and makes the whole thing taste like pie. Not lying, it’s thick and creamy and tastes like blueberry pie. Yum!
- Blueberries: Fresh or frozen, they are chock full of antioxidants and are sweet with just a bit of an acidic taste.
- Banana: Creamy and sweet, bananas taste great with blueberries, and are a great way to naturally sweeten smoothies.
- Oats: I usually use quick or old-fashioned/rolled oats, but you can use whatever you have on hand! Even steel-cut.
- Yogurt: Plain yogurt contributes to the creamy texture while helping it blend. Use Greek yogurt for an extra protein punch.
- Protein powder: I use vanilla flavor, but whether it’s whey or plant-based, it’ll help keep you full.
- Flaxseed: Flavorless, but adds fiber and most importantly omega-3s.
- Cinnamon: Adds sweet flavor and a load of antioxidants.
- Nutmeg: Sweet, woody, nutty taste that contributes to the smoothie tasting like pie.
How to Make Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie
Start your Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie by adding your blueberries to the bottom of your blender. I like using frozen so I don’t have to add ice.
Next add the banana, broken up to help with blending.
Followed by your oats.
And the flaxseeds, although you could also use flaxseed meal.
Then add the plain yogurt.
And the protein powder.
Finish with the cinnamon and nutmeg, before adding a bit of water to blend.
Blend together until smooth, adding more water or ice as necessary to achieve desired consistency.
Pour evenly into glasses to serve.
Garnish with additional banana slice if you’re feeling fancy, and enjoy your Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie!

You can make the smoothie and freeze it, then move it to the fridge to thaw to a drinkable consistency when ready to drink, or follow my instructions on make-ahead smoothie freezer bags!
