Here's a simple formula for a delicious smoothie that's great with or without protein powder
With bananas and oats, this smoothie is a great base for a post-workout shake. Easy, healthy, and quick. We make it in our Vitamix, but it’s great in any blender.
Go make it!
Can I Sell This? You Should Seriously Sell This
Sometimes I make them for people. But no, I don’t sell smoothies. My Banana Oatmeal Smoothie is no exception. I just show people how to make ’em.
Smoothie joints don’t make anything like this. Not sure why. It would send sales through the roof.
“This tastes like the cake batter we used to make when we were kids.” Sort of, yes. But maybe you’re thinking of the Cake Batter Smoothie?
Tasting the Banana Oatmeal Smoothie: Eli and EJ
The tasting video begins with EJ being puzzled about what he’s eating. He cannot figure out why this banana oatmeal smoothie is so good. Off camera, I told him my Vitamix helps, but it’s all about the ingredients.
Eli catches on and makes an attempt to steal from EJ. Smoothie approved.
Just know that you’ll need a frozen banana for this. So to avoid extreme disappointment, you might want to freeze a banana right meow.
Perfect for breakfast or post-workout. Kinda tastes like cake.
