Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Smoothies

Finally, a smoothie I can embrace.  Although I make smoothies all the time, I never drank one until now.  Much to my dismay, I do not love fruit.  Why oh why do all smoothies have fruit?  I do tolerate a certain amount for my health, but it is not my favorite.  (BTW, this has been very helpful in growing adventurous eaters.  If they see you continuing to try a food you are not crazy about, they will be encouraged to do the same.)

But now that I’ve found a new way to enjoy a smoothie without fruit, I am excited by the possibilities.  I am on a mission for “fruitless” smoothies, or maybe just ones so tasty I don’t notice a bit of fruit.

Check out that straw!  Do your kids love to drink from a straw?  Mine do, but I hated throwing away all those bits of plastic.  Stainless Steel Straws have been a great eco-friendly alternative.

This smoothie tastes just like a cookie, but it is naturally sweetened with just a bit of honey.  Yum!  The sweetness will depend on your brands of peanut butter and yogurt, so adjust the amount of honey to your liking.

I did try making this with just whole oats and the immersion blender.  It was a bit too chunky for my taste.  Now I process the oats first in the blender, I like them ground just slightly larger than oat flour.  Then I just add the rest of the ingredients for a quick, easy and filling snack.

  1. In the recipe it doesn’t state clearly the amount of peanut butter. Is it 1/3 cup, tbsp, or tsp? I would guess it is 1/3 cup but would appreciate if it states more clearly. Thank you.

  2. I do enjoy fruit, but this smoothie is AMAZIING

  3. I need to try this smoothie! It has everything I love. I NEED to get those straws. I go thru too many plastic straws in my house. Pinned and thank you for linking up to Wake up Wednesdays!!

  4. Stainless steel straws? Fantastic. Must have! The smoothie sounds amazing too.

  5. Sherri,
    This sounds wonderful, and I’m a fruit-loving smoothie drinker. I have a feeling that my kids and I will be having one for afterschool snack on Tuesday after I hit Costco for oats and yogurt during sled hockey practice tomorrow night. Yum!

    Thanks!
