Bananas, nut milk, protein packed peanut butter, healthful flax seeds for beautiful insides and beautiful outsides, and thickening oats.

Peanut Butter, Banana, and Oat Milkshake

makes about 2 1/2 cups.  one large or two small portions

Print this Recipe!

2 cups cold almond milk (soy or regular milk would also be delicious)

1 banana, cut into chunks (frozen is ideal) (definitely peel the banana… like, for sure.)

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 heaping teaspoon honey

1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground into meal

2 teaspoon old fashioned oats, ground fine

In a spice grinder, pulverize flax seeds and oats into a fine powder.  My spice grinder is just my coffee grinder really well cleaned out.

In a blender combine almond milk, banana, peanut butter, honey, and ground flax and oats.  Blend until no banana chunks remain, and the mixture is thoroughly incorporated.  Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.

  1. I make this shake (almost exactly) every day for breakfast. It is seriously filling and amazing (ok, my husband thinks it tastes to healthy but I love it). I find that the blender does a fine job of pulverizing the oats, so I just pour right in. Also, when I want to treat myself, I add a few chocolate-covered pretzels to the mix. Pretzels + banana + PB + chocolate = delicious!

    1. From someone who has a similar smoothie for breakfast literally every morning (minus the oatmeal and honey, plus a couple big handfuls of spinach and some unsweetened cocoa powder), definitely peel the banana before you blend it! Ideally before you freeze it as well, since getting a frozen peel off a frozen banana is more than a little tricky.

      1. As soon as I saw that photo I thought “Wow, we’re blending banana peels now?? I bet it’s super healthy.” Bahaha, thanks for clarifying before I had to try explaining that to classmates, “No really, Joy the Baker is super fetch and totes knows what’s up.”

    1. I know this sounds weird, but try frozen zucchini (cut into chunks before freezing). Then you might want some more flavor, like cocoa powder. Frozen bananas are key to all my smoothies, but sometimes they just seem too damn sweet. I bet steamed and then cooled sweet potato would be good too.

    2. I make a smoothie every morning that is 1 cup almond milk, half a fuji apple (chopped), glob of peanut butter, a dash of cinnamon and 4 ice cubes. It is delicious and you could totally add the oats and flax seed for extra nutrition boosting powers.

  2. I’ve never seen almond milk in the shops before, is it expensive? I assume it’s substituable for regular milk?

    As always, love your blog :)

  3. I love adding oats into smoothies (or milkshakes!). It adds a nice thicker texture without feeling like you are adding solid chunks to something that should be smooth. It also adds a hint of that nutty flavor that I <3 so much!
