Banana & Peanut Butter Breakfast Smoothie

I’m not usually one for healthy smoothies……or elaborate breakfasts come to that, but I’m trying to eat more fruit! I don’t often have breakfast, as I never seem to have time to eat it! So I wanted to come up with a quick smoothie that doesn’t cost too much, and is more filling than the all fruit smoothie.

I have had this smoothie every morning this week…..and it’s amazing! So tasty and simple. The peanut butter gives you a morning protein kick and the porridge oats make it thick and substantial, so I’m full up until lunchtime (well 11ish!). Aldi sell a smooth and a crunchy peanut butter, both work well in this recipe.

What do you put in your smoothie? Exciting combinations gratefully received!


Makes 2 smoothies

  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 desert spoon peanut butter
  • 400ml whole milk
  • 1tsp honey
  • 2 heaped dessert spoons of overnight oats
  • A dessert spoon of cocoa powder

First make the overnight oats: Half fill a jam jar sized Kilner jar with porridge oats. Cover with milk, close the lid and put in the fridge for at least 8 hours. This will make more than you need.

Add all of the ingredients to a liquidiser. Turn up to the highest setting, and liquidise for 1 minute until smooth and a little frothy. Divide between 2 glasses, and drink!
