Imagine you’re late for school or work and don’t have time to make yourself a proper breakfast. What then? Most of us will just skip a meal, but if you’re like me, you’ll regret it hours later. Your best bet is to put together a quick and easy smoothie to keep your hunger at bay all morning.
So, smoothies come in all shapes, flavors and sizes, so how to make the most nutritious and tastiest meal? Is there such a thing as the perfect morning smoothie? Well, if there is, this might be it — the banana coffee oatmeal smoothie.
Let’s design the perfect breakfast, and we all know that means starting with a cup of coffee. So, let’s add some coffee to the blender. Instant coffee works best; it will help you get a thick smoothie that’s not too runny.
We’re also adding oat milk, and you can substitute it with anything, from regular milk to almond milk. For me, oat milk sounds more like breakfast. Then we’re adding half a banana, which will add nutrition and consistency to the smoothie and a few crushed nuts. Again, choose your favorite.
The sweetener matters, too. Perhaps the banana is ripe enough to sweeten the smoothie, but chances are you’ll need to add some sugar or any other sweetener, from Stevia to honey, everything goes.
A touch of cinnamon powder is the perfect way to garnish this drinkable breakfast. That’s it, a caffeinated, nutritious and filling smoothie you’ll absolutely love. And it takes just a few minutes, really!
There are many ways of customizing this smoothie. Some cocoa powder will make it chocolatey, and a dash of vanilla extract will work well, too! Throw in some cranberries or your favorite berries for extra vitamin C and antioxidants, and if fiber is what you need, a few tablespoons of granola will work beautifully.
There are many ways to make a smoothie, and if you put your thought into it, it will always be delicious. Fast and easy, breakfast smoothies are the best way to stay energized all day, even when you don’t have time to cook! Make a large batch and share your creation with your family or roomies.
In a blender, add the coffee, oat milk, sugar, banana and your favorite nuts. Blend until smooth.
Pour into your favorite glass. Garnish with cinnamon powder.
