    I do mine a little different, I freeze the bananas, no ice and add 3/4 a C of unsweetened Silk almond milk. Also I use Greek yogurt plain and you can optionally add a tsp of honey. Lastly @Linda I ALWAYS use raw oat you just have to blend it more :) s/n 1 serving = 314 calories TOTAL (w/ no honey) HTH!

    May I use oats soaked overnight instead of cooked and get good results?

    Cut the banana in chunks and freeze it then omit the ice.

    Sounds delicious ! ( I wonder if this could be done with raw oats to lessen the calories)

    Thank you for new ideas for Smoothies such as adding oatmeal. I already make Smoothies daily with Banana other fruits and Veg's. I already include Banana into my cooking oatmeal. Thank you..... I wish there were coupons for Banana....would be great due to high prices...

    Kia ora, greetings from New Zealand! This recipe is awesome, if tweaked a bit. I made it for 1 serving. ~1 banana, ~1/3 cup milk (I use trim milk), ~1/4 cup porridge, ~1 tbsp almond flour (same as the almonds as they're gonna get ground anyway! I used less though), ~Optional: 1 tsp honey (I don't use this as I'm all good with the natural sweetness of the recipe), ~Optional: A dash of cinnamon. Method: Blend. This recipe had less calories, it's healthier and much easier to blend!

    Great nutrient dense smoothie for a breakfast meal in a glass. If you want to watch carbs, use only one banana and cut the oatmeal to 1/4 cup and don't cook them beforehand. Use plain/unsweetened Greek yogurt too. I also agree to soak the almonds or grind them fine (or buy some almond flour...same thing) or you'll have some sharp chunks at the bottom of your cup when you're done. To punch it up sometimes, I'll add a scoop of powdered greens and/or a scoop of good whey protein as well.

    OK...just to be sure. Does this recipe call for cooking oatmeal and using 1/2 cup of it.....or measuring 1/2 cup of dry oatmeal, cooking it, and using it all?

    The mix needs to have a bit of ground flax seed, moringa powder,ground nutmeg,a tsp of pure honey and you have a power blaster of energy and not to mention tasty.

    This blends into a huge shake, about half of it is drinkable until you're full, but even if you were to drink it all, it's body type specific.. And I don't care who you are or what your program is, 12g of protein should NOT be "enough to hold you over until lunch".

    When you say cooked oatmeal, do you actually cook it? Or are you talking about the dry quick oats. In your picture it's dry.

    It's a good recipe; however, it was a little sweet for me. As mentioned below, I would grind the almonds up separately and then add it to the smoothie. Otherwise, you'll end up drinking little chunks of almonds!

    Skip the ice and blend the bananas and put them in an ice cube tray the night before.

    Soaking almonds in alkaline or spring water for 8 hours makes them easily digestible and creamier in shakes. If you have left over almonds just drain off water after soaking and store in fridge. Be sure to rinse everyday.

    This is sooooo yummy! Thank you for the post! And all that have rude things to say about peoples questions.. Shame on you. Someone asked if their mother taught them anything about cooking.. So insensitive do I really have to say out loud (type) that some didn't have mothers to teach them... Anyway just a little venting for the idiots that were rude! Thanks again for post can't wait to switch it up with other fruits!

    Thank you MonsterGrl, for pointing out the 2 servings. Reading recipes on my phone, so things are missed sometimes. I have adjusted recipe for just one serving. Also, I use dry oatmeal instead of cooked. It cuts down on prep time and extra dirty dishes. I also add blueberries and raw honey to change it up.

    Oh my, this is so tasty and really creamy. This is a great basic recipe that can easily be switched up just by adding different fruits and yogurt flavors. Definitely will have fun playing around with this recipe.

    I must say I am overwhelmed at the loss of logical thinking (or course you peel the bananas!), and the lack of attention to detail ("cooked oatmeal")in some of these comments. Love smoothies...always tweaking them to liven things up. I try to add protein powder to most smoothies that we make in our house to up the total grams of protein!

    This tastes great. However, I started running the numbers on this and I get almost double the 380 calorie count. I add 3-4 oz of water cause it is too thick and I also add 1 splenda packet for a little boost in sweetness. Those are the only things I changed. I'm guessing this is a 2 serving recipe. I yield 24oz and over 600 caleries. So, this is a great recipe for two people in 12oz cups. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    This recipe was yummy. I added a TBS each of Chia seeds and flax seeds, about a half cup or so of unsweetened almond milk, and about a tsp of Dutch.cocoa. It was delicious and filled me right up. I totally felt like I was cheating and eating something that wasn't healthful. I'll definitely make this again. The oatmeal was a great addition.

    add dark chocolated chips when the moon is full! I use the mill blade on my nutri bullet first to break down the chips and almonds then add the rest of the ingredients and mix with the smoothie blade.

    @ Jackie, it's ok that you asked about the peel. You didn't know. Don't listen to them; at least you are trying. Good for you! When I was a 25 year old newlywed, I called my mom and asked her how to make tea. My stepfather laughed and said, "She doesn't even know how to boil water!" I now have learned 5 steps to success: pray, show up, follow directions, ask questions, then do it! Repeat. Listen to those who support you and ignore those who don't. My best to you.

    I guess I must just be very old, and some of you are very young, because some of your posts are ridiculous! Didn't your mothers teach you to cook??? You have to ask about whether or not to peel the banana? I guess this is just a sign of the times. PLEASE, young ladies, (and young men), learn how to cook!! It is so important. To take care of yourself and your family through the meals you prepare is such an important way to show love. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

    This is the best smoothie I've found. I used a frozen banana, honey vanilla Greek yogurt and added flax seed and a splash of light vanilla soy milk. Also, I didn't cook the oatmeal first...whoops...but was so good! Also..cut the recipe in half.

    Tried this and loved it! Kept us full till lunchtime. Trying it with Almond Milk tomorrow. Peel the banana's folks (?!?) and the cooked oatmeal ... place the raw oatmeal in an oven-proof dish and spread it out. Place it into the oven at 150C for approx 20mins. This will keep in an airtight container for about two weeks.

    P.S. Noosa yoghurt only has 14 carbs per serving (4 oz) so it's better for diabetics as well. It's made with healthy ingredients and sweetened with cane sugar and honey.

    The smoothie was thick, but really good! It tastes wonderful and is energizing. This is now my breakfast go-to smoothie. To those who think it is too many calories, remember that a 380 calorie power smoothie made of whole, nutritious ingredients is more beneficial than a 380 calorie cupcake. Also, taking in consideration of your BMI and BMR, a 380 calorie smoothie is maybe the amount of calories you should maybe be having for breakfast to be energized throughout the day.

    Really healthy recipe, its all good ingredients, just vary it according to how you want to eat. Morning is the best time to get in complex carbs like oats, that will give you energy for the day. Try NOT to have too much sugar in the morning as there's nothing in your system to curb a blood sugar peak and fat formation, so use unsweetened yogurt. Greek yogurt+protein powder will up the protein. Yes, almonds do have a high fat content, but some natural fats are important for your health.

    You people seriously think this is fattening because of the calories? Do you people understand anything? Counting calories is a bunch of bull. Eat good foods and cut out white sugar and carb. Someone actually said they were only going to use six almonds to cut down fat. Seriously? It honestly makes me laugh...

    Ok....let me first just say that you all are a bunch of idiots. Do your homework before you throw out comments that make you sound completely unintelligent. Not all calories are the SAME! There is NO fat in this recipe. The only sugar in it comes from the bananas and that is fructose...not sugar! You don't have to count calories in HEALTH food! 380 calories of GOOD, NON-FATENING calories are COMPLETELY different than other calories from say a brownie or ice cream! Educate yourselves please!

    Tastes great with raw oatmeal! I used half the recipe and it was still more than enough. Also, I used raw honey and plain greek yogurt - both of which are really good and healthy! Great meal replacement especially if you're active and always on the go, does not take long to make at all.

    Uh, apparently no one knows that there is a difference between a 380 calorie doughnut and a 380 calorie health drink. Not all calories are created equal. Y'all need to do some research. If you're eating healthy, you don't need to worry about counting calories or 'cutting this in half'. This recipe makes TWO SERVINGS. Share it with someone to help start there day off right!

    This recipe has 380 calories which if was used as breakfast is only 25% of a 1600 calorie diet, so no, it is not high calorie if you consider it as a meal replacement. 1600 calories might even be less than an active woman needs. It sounds great and I want to try it. The recipe calls for COOKED oatmeal, so I image that if raw oatmeal is used the calories would be greater. (Raw oatmeal swells up when cooked, so 1/2 cup raw = closer to 3/4 or 1 cup cooked) How does it taste with raw oatmeal?

    I made the recipe with one less banana to lessen the claories, and without the ice because I have a low-powered blender. It was SUPER thick, so I has to add a splash of milk to even think about sucking it down a straw.

    Am I missing something in the recipe. U all are talking about milk, I don't see any milk, almond, or pasteurized or non pasteurized as u are arguing about....I didn't use any milk products, just a little water to give a drinkable consistency, and I loved it! As far as calories and carbs, they are healthy cal and carbs, and breakfast SHOULD be where u eat you most carbs and calories. You burn it all day. That is if your not sitting on the couch watching tv all day.

    I'm really concerned that so many people think that Raw milk is "healthier" for children. Milk is pasteurized to prevent illness and death. http://www.cdc.gov/foodsafety/rawmilk/raw-milk-index.html People who are vulnerable should not be consuming raw products, imho.

    I just made this yummy smoothie per the recipe, however, I am going to remix with 1 more banana. It needs more banana flavor in my opinion. Otherwise it has a great consistency and the other flavors are good.

    If you were to mix the oats, the necessary amount of water to cook them, and yogurt the night before, and leave them in the fridge overnight - this could even be done in your blender container - you won't have to cook them come morning. They absorb the water and soften overnight and can be eaten that way alone or in a smoothie. Come morning, add the other ingredients and blend.

    I think the idea of having to cook the oatmeal makes this 'too much work' for a smoothie. I agree with the almond milk or raw milk, and soaking the almonds. I'd prob add some protein powder, full-fat greek yogurt, other fruit,and kale!

    @Sara: Stephanie is saying exactly what she means and is absolutely correct. The milk should be UN-pasteruized and from pastured cows. You are the one who is uninformed and smug. The recipe sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing.
  • December 28, 2012

    Stephanie means raw milk. If she's talking about phytic acid in oatmeal, I'm pretty sure she knows that pasteurized milk does not mean that the cows are pasteurized. The term 'pasteurized' came from Louis Pasteur - the guy who invented the process. She means grass-fed cows. In a pasture. Raw milk is actually healthier... this coming from someone who doesn't eat dairy due to allergies. NOW, onto the recipe. I will try this with almond milk instead of yogurt. And I will soak my oats and nuts :)
  • December 28, 2012

    I made this, with a few changes and it was delicious! I made only one serving (cutting the ingredients in half). I used one banana, one cup of frozen blueberries (in place of the ice), 1.2 oz of Chobani 0% plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup regular oats soaked for about 5 mins in unsweetened almond milk, and 1/4 cup of sliced almonds. It was still a little thick, so I added a few tablespoons of the almond milk and perfection! Thanks for the great recipe!

    To make this healthy, the oatmeal should be soaked prior to cooking or just soaked. This breaks down the phytic acid and makes it digestable by the human body. The yogurt/milk should be raw and not pasturized from pastured cows, the banana should be organic, the spots on the peel are indicative of both ripeness as well as when the cancer healing power of bananas are reached, almonds should also be soaked prior to consumption for the same reason. Honey should be raw.Learn what healthy is!

    I make mine like this: I dry blend into fine powder old fashion oatmeal and whole almonds make enough to fill a food saver canister. In a clean blender I add 4 large frozen strawberries, blueberries, and a speckled ripe banana. Add one 1/4 cup blended oatmeal mix and add vanilla flavor almond milk or coconut or soy I add 1 TBSP honey wheat germ and blend away. Talk about delicious.

    Almonds are a bit on the expensive side and I assuem they are included in here for protein. Is there something else beside protein powder that could bus used? Also, I would not cook the oatmeal. I mix uncooked oatmeal with my yogurt in the morning and love it

    J, this recipe makes 2 servings, and the nutrition info is per single serving only. now, since you said that this recipe makes 32 oz, then each serving must be 16 oz. 16 oz of the smoothie you made is 280 calories, while 16 oz of this recipe is 380 calories. where is the discrepancy? this recipe isn't telling you you're consuming less calories than you actually are.
  • October 23, 2012

    I calculated my own nutritional info for this recipe based off the specific brands of the ingredients that I used. I still used the same amounts of all the ingredients. An 8oz serving is 140 calories with 17 carbs. This recipe makes roughly 32oz. I find a large discrepancy in the nutritional information, even allowing flexibility for the difference of brands in ingredients.

    Hey... I see you laughing at anyone considering shoving the peel in the blender (Ann). I just wanted to mention, by the way the recipe was written, 'I' wasn't so sure you weren't suppose to blend the banana peel... which is why I looked at the comments :P lol.

  • October 12, 2012
    super yummy!!
     
    I used what I had on hand which was non-fat plain yogurt, raw oats and added local fresh honey for some extra sweetness. It came out great and was a hit with my four year old as well!

    Hi, If you read the nutrition information above, it says "Per Serving." It also says 53 gms Carbs per serving. The recipe makes 2 servings making the entire recipe 106 gms of Carbs. You have told Josie that one serving equals 26.5 carbs so she will be taking 1/2 the amount of insulin required to cover this 1 serving. I know this because I also am a type I diabetic for 40yrs and have been counting carbs since 1997 when I got my first insulin pump.

    Oh, that's per serving nevermind. Makes sense!

    There is no way this recipe is only 380 calories.

    Ann, the part that says 'specks on peel' is descriptive only, to indicate ripeness of banana.

  • October 2, 2012

    josie, to answer your question, yes, i just had an orientation with a diabetic nutrition consultant today and she is telling me it is best for you to count your carbs, and try to keep them to 45 grams per meal, so if you have just one serving of this smoothie that puts your carb count at 26.5 carbs. which is even better she said if you can keep it at 30 it will help you to loose weight as well as keep you levels down. she also told me a good breakfast would be a banana and nuts so this is good

    For those of you who think this has too many calories 380 is for 2 shakes not just one! And if it was just for one it still wouldn't be a lot!

    This recipe is so good. I took the almonds out ( I'm a texture person) and ate them on the side. I added carnations powdered breakfast and honey. Its so quick and easy for mornings I have class. Delicious!

    Bananas are sweeter when they become riper...hence the brown flecks on the banana peel.

    this is for sherry.. sherry in answer to your question about the banana peel, Im guessing that they mentioned a banana peel with brown specks because that is when the banana has the most nutritional value. I dont think they mean to put in the banana peel. I hope Im giving you the right answer :)
  • September 10, 2012

    I omitted the ice and used plain frozen greek yogurt, frozen bananas and added a 1/4 of unsweetened almond milk. Was soo good! It was suprisingly sweet too considering there was no sugar added! Only the natural sugar in the banana, which ISN'T bad for you!! I tasted it before adding each ingredient and the almond milk with extra almonds and banana were amazing by itself.. a tad liquidy, though.
  • September 8, 2012
    Christen
     
    This recipe needs a liquid. I used 1/2 cup milk, otherwise it wouldn't blend.

    Do you use the whole banana including peel ? That seems a bit strange.

    It sounds good but what can I use other than yogurt?
  • September 4, 2012
    Jen
     
    Someone asked what they could use instead of oatmeal, for gluten concerns. I bet quinoa would work wonderfully. I also have to avoid dairy, so I will use almond milk and forgo the almonds and the yogurt. I will also be freezing my bananas and eliminating the ice. Tasty! And perfect this way for vegans, autistic people on the GFCF diet, and for celiacs, or those avoiding gluten. Really looking forward to doing this. :) (With some berries... though with pineapple, it would be tropical!)

    I freeze bananas all the time for smoothies. You do not have to use ice that way. Plus it is a great way to save bananas before the go bad. It works best if you cut them up before freezing.

    Sounds great but I would not cook the oatmeal. I make raw oatmeal smoothies all the time and as long as you add a little almond milk and blend it really well you'll have a thick but drinkable smoothie. Also, use frozen bananas and leave out the ice. It'll be sweeter with no added calories.
  • August 4, 2012

    I tried this today, but halved all the amounts of the ingredients and added peanuts instead of almonds. Since I just eyeballed adding them - i think i added too much, tasted a bit too nutty. I added ~.5cup of milk and it was thinner than I wanted. Also used plain Greek yogurt and 1tbsp honey, no complaints there :) Good luck!

    For lower calories and more flavor - slice the ripe bananas and freeze them. Then you can eliminate the ice. I use the frozen bananas with vanilla almond milk and throw in whatever is in season - fresh berries, pumpkin, etc.

    i made this with one banana, about 1 cup of coconut milk, 1 100 calorie packet of almonds, 2 ice cubes and about 1/2 cooked oats and it was the perfect size shake just for me.

    I only had one banana so I did the recipe in half. I am sure glad I did because it was more than enough. I also didn't have oatmeal so I used granola. Delicious! Highly recommend this recipe!

    I just made this and it was GREAT. I don't like Greek yogurt so I just used yoplait vanilla, added a little bit of soy milk so not so thick and flax seed. I have the flu right now and it was perfect for my sore throat.

    This was a wonderful way to start the day! Like everyone else, I changed the ingredients a bit. I didn't have Greek yogurt, but I always have kefir in the fridge. I think that probably helped with the thickness issue many have mentioned, yet the flavor is similar. I also cooked my oatmeal to a more watery consistency so that the smoothie was less thick. Loved the recipe and enjoyed hearing all of the variations people have tried!
  • February 11, 2012

    I followed the recipe exactly as above and then added one scoop of protein powder. WOW Yum! Finished product measured out to be almost 5 cups, you can halve the recipe or store the rest in the freezer. I scrolled through the comments for some more variation ideas, can't wait to play around with this recipe.

    This recipe was amazing! Make sure your bananas are ripe enough, but me and my husband both love this recipe, and I cook the oatmeal before putting it in!

    This smoothie was good but I added 1/2 cup of almond milk because there was not enough liquid for my blender to process it.

    @Rlamar261... If you use the WW points calculator for the whole recipe's nutrition info, it is going to be 5 points because it counts the calories, carbs, etc. for the bananas (which should be zero). I count this as 3 points only for the ingredients.

    Thank you to my WW people for pts value! This was great and stayed with me ALL day long!I added a scoop of Vanilla Whey Protein powder to this . Loved it!

    This was factastic, I don't think I have ever been so stuffed from a smoothie!! I used instant oats, I just poored 1/2 cup of boiling water on it while I got the other ingreedients. I think the warm oatmeal must have thinned it out becuase it was very cold, but had an excellent smoothie texture!
  • January 29, 2012
    Rlamar261
     
    For WW it's 10 plus points for 2 servings. The recipe makes 2 servings. So 1 serving is 5 points. Just thought I'd clarify for the person who thinks its 10. I tried inputting it into recipe builder without almonds, still comes up as 5 points per serving. Even though the oatmeal and yogurt only end up being 3 points?

    i made this a bit differently. i dont really like almonds so i didnt use those. and i only had strawberry and cream oatmeal so i used that with strawberry yogurt so it was like a strawberry and banana oatmeal smoothie for me :) still very delicious though!

    I will try this, but I have been cutting a banana into chunks and putting in the freezer to make smoothies. That should eliminate using ice cubes.
  • January 10, 2012
    Amy
     
    This was delish!! I pretty much made this from the breakfast my kids left on the table. I made it quite a bit smaller. About 1/2 C oatmeal, 1/2 a banana, about 10 almonds, a tablespoon of yogurt, some milk and ice. If you put the ingredients in a pint size mason jar,screw the blade and base of your cheap blender onto the jar and put that on the blender it pretty much turns your blender into a magic bullet. You can then just drink out of the jar and save a dish!
  • January 10, 2012
    Melissa
     
    YUM YUM YUMMMMMM!!!! I used raw oats that I ground up in a food processor first, slivered almonds that I also processed, 1 cu vanilla activia, about a tbls. of honey, 1/8 cup of soy protein powder, and a little 2% milk. DELICIOUS AND SATISFYING!!! Thank you, Chiquita!
  • January 8, 2012
    Debby
     
    I used walnuts, unflavored Almond milk to soften the oats, a peach-flavored Activia and a drop of honey. It was awesome! I love the chewiness...made me feel like it was more of a meal than just a drink.
  • January 8, 2012
    Danielle
     
    I used one and a half frozen bananas, soaked the oats and almonds (crushed) in a little bit of milk, used plain yogurt, and added a little bit of honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. It turned out wonderful (and I hate bananas!). You have to chew a little bit since the consistency is more like runny oatmeal than that of a smoothy but I loved it and so did my 2 year old daughter.

    If I wanted to add chocolate, what would you recommend I use?

    I, too, would mix vanilla yogurt instead of the Greek yogurt. Definitely a meal, not a snack. I would try it again.

    I added a little agave nectar to add some flavor and that worked well.
  • January 6, 2012

    i NEVER cook oatmeal before putting in this or any smoothie. I will soak quick (not instant) oats in appx 1/2-3/4 cup liquid (almond milk is perfect) while I'm gathering ingredients and just pour it all in. Yes there may be some chewing necessary, but chewing smoothies is better for one's digestion :) p.s. -- add a cup of pumpkin, 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder & a few dashes of cinnamon to the above-- makes 2 huge, delicious servings of "pumpkin pie smoothie"!
  • January 6, 2012
    Lynsey
     
    I mean, it's good if you like "chewing" your smoothie... For me it's too much work for a smoothie. Cooking the oatmeal first, etc. I also added a bit of almond milk, cinnamon, and vanilla which made it not so bland.
  • January 6, 2012
    Melinda
     
    How do I cook the oatmeal to put in? I have quick oats, can I just add that in, not cooked?
  • January 5, 2012

    I soaked the almonds in water for a few hours, so they'd be softer and better for absorption before blending. My kids didn't drink it all, so I put the leftovers in their popsicle molds.
  • January 5, 2012

    Love this!! Instead of yogurt I used almonds breeze in vanilla and a dap of honey. Super yummy an keeps you full till lunch and super energized! Thanks!!

    Used coconut milk vanilla yogurt and didn't cook the oatmeal. I imagine this would work well with vanilla soy yogurt too for those with dairy allergies.

    For those of you who think the smoothie is chalky or bland try using regular vanilla yogurt and just add your own honey. It taste really sweet.

    I'm looking forward to trying this. I've never heard of cooking oatmeal for a smoothie,I guess that makes it smoother, although I've never had a problem with dry oats in smoothies, so I'm fascinated to see how it works out.
  • December 13, 2011

    Try freezing the banana and yogurt so the ice will not dilute it.
  • December 13, 2011
    Derek
     
    Its a great recipe you may want to add a little honey and or more yogurt than indicated for flavor... borwn sugar posibly.. the ice(water) tends to dilute taste but is necessary so a little push to the flavor works well...

    Made this just now with Vanilla Greek Yogurt because they were out of honey. I also used raw oatmeal, like previous posters suggested. It tastes really "chalky". Definitely wont make it like this again, but might give it a whirl some other way...

    This smoothie is such a fabulous idea! I made half the recipe with plain non-fat yogurt and stirred in 1/8 cup melted chocolate chips. Other ideas: add cinnamon, add maple syrup, try different kinds of nuts (someone suggested pecans and/or walnuts), add bran flakes. (not all ideas at the same time!) You could also try different flavors of yogurt!

    We have smoothies all the time and use frozen strawberries, blueberries or blackberries. No ice cubes. More yogurt and a little juice if it's too thick. Add a little honey to the regular yogurt if you can't find the Greek yogurt. Our health food store has ground almonds, pecans and walnuts. All sound good. Thanks.

    I used organic maple spice oatmeal and substituted peanut butter for the almonds (that's what I had). It was great!! I did have to use a splash of milk to get my blender moving though. Maybe b/c I was only making one serving. I will make this often.

    This is a great breakfast smoothie, but you can enhance this even more with more protein by adding 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter and some Flax Meal. Healthy, delicious and a great run out the door with something that gets you going with long lasting energy.
