recipe: banana oat breakfast smoothie

Bananas and oats. Two cupboard staples that make a perfect partnership for breakfast in many different guises. I am often in a bit of a rush in the morning and that can mean leaving next to no time to preparing a decent, balanced breakfast.

The oats makes this smoothie relatively filling so that you don’t get a rumbling stomach mid-morning but as this can be whipped up in a few minutes it is an ideal way to have a tasty brekkie on the go.

Ingredients – serves 1

  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 8 dried dates (chop them up if your blender isn’t really powerful)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • handful of ice
  • squeeze of honey


  1. This is an easy one – add it all the blender and process until smooth. The dates will take a while to be processed down enough so don’t be too impatient!
