I absolutely love healthy smoothies for a quick breakfast. A few other favorites are my Bali Banana Date Smoothie, Kale Banana Hemp Chia Superfood Smoothie, and Roasted Strawberry Protein Smoothie.

In South America, it’s common to drink avena, a delicious oatmeal shake usually made with whole milk, cinnamon and sugar. My oldest daughter loves it, you can see my original recipe here. I’ve made it with pumpkin, but I was curious to see what would happen if I used unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk instead, along with blueberries and banana. The outcome was really good. I added some raw sugar to sweeten it. You can even use stevia or whatever sweetener you would normally use.

This is best if you make it and drink it right away. If you only need one serving, cook all the oatmeal in water as instructed below, but use only half of the cooked oatmeal in the blender and save the other half for the next day.

  1. The first time I made this, it wasn’t cold enough for my liking. The second time I made the oatmeal ahead of time and used a frozen banana. It was so much better.

    Hi Gina,
    Do you add the warm oatmeal to the smoothie or let it cool?
    Thanks,
    Michelle

  3. Hi Gina! I LOVE your site and your cookbook. I’ve bought it for all the women in my family and they can’t stop raving about you! You are be best! Question about this recipe. If I want only one serving do I half all the ingredients or just the oatmeal? 

    Thanks for everything! 

      1. Great thank you!  One last question…can I use coconut palm sugar or stevia instead of raw sugar? I am trying to use the least amount of calories possible. Thanks again Gina! 

  4. This is really good. I loved the original one you posted so much, it took me a while to make this one. My preschooler and toddler loved it, too. I used frozen blueberries because that's what I had and it turned out great. Thanks for another delicious recipe!

    I made this today without cooking the oatmeal first and without the added sugar. I just used a whole banana instead of half to add a little extra sweetness. It was great! I will definitely make it again.

  6. Love the website I found this recipe on, Dysdine,com, but havent checked out the recipes so much yet. This particular recipe sounds pretty yummy actually (for my own tastebuds) but I'm wondering if it meets the level of pureed texture I, as a speech pathologist, recommend for my clients. I would feel hesitant to recommend this recipe because there is no clarification regarding the bits of blueberry or any additions should really be strained first before drinking, to make it truly a pureed texture. Some individuals can aspirate fine bits of particles from berry skins, in this case. Maybe I missed the detailed instructions (which should be explicit for a dysphagia recipe), but I'm thinking if a recipe is included on the website I found it on, the pureed texture should be stressed and absolutely clarified for those with dysphagia. Thanks, Erin

  7. It looks sooooo delicious!! I eat oatmeal with strawberries and blueberries every morning and tomorrow I'm going to try this version 🙂

    I'm confused about serving it over ice. Use crushed ice? Picture looks like ice is mixed in the smoothee.

    1. I think she means use crushed ice in the blender with everything else but then pour the smoothie over ice to keep it cold while you drink it. It's better cold. That's how I prepare it and I really like it that way.

  9. I do not like oatmeal I never have. Is this really like eating regular oatmeal? I don't want to purchase oatmeal to only find out I will not like this.

  10. I don't like oatmeal, but I think oats in the smoothie sounds great. I need some variety for breakfast so I'll have to give this a try.
