My Favorite Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipes It’s no secret that meal planning is one of my strategies for keeping sane and organized during the week. For some reason, I never plan breakfast, and then I’m left grabbing whatever I can find — coffee and a gummy vitamin, anyone?  Combine that with my realization that I feel much better during the day when I eat a decent amount of protein in the morning, and all of a sudden planning breakfast sounds better and better! But sometimes it’s hard to find healthy breakfast recipes! I developed this healthy breakfast smoothie recipe in order to have a fast, grab and go meal in the morning that fills me up, lasts till lunch, and is full of nutrition (and low-carb!). Need something even quicker? Try this Frozen Smoothie Mix that I just pull out of the freezer and blend!

Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

  • 1/2 cup milk (can use any alternative or nut milk you choose – I usually use homemade cashew milk)
  • 1/2 cup Stonyfield Whole Milk French Vanilla Yogurt (haven’t tried it yet? You HAVE to!)
  • 1/2 cup quick oats, soaked in 1/2 cup water
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter of your choice; can use sunbutter if you’re nut-free)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional) (Hemp seeds are a great choice too; THIS is my favorite recipe with Hemp Seeds)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder (optional)



1. Soak the oats in the water for 5-10 minutes. This just softens them up and makes them easier to blend.

2. Add all the ingredients to a blender (I have a Blendtec which I am in love with, but this is also a great moderately priced choice) in the following order: milk, oats (with the soaking water), yogurt, peanut butter, banana (chopped), cocoa powder, and chia seeds.

3. Blend on high for 30 seconds – 1 minute, until everything is completely blended, smooth, and frothy. Serve chilled. Protein Smoothie 2 I make breakfast smoothie at night, keep it in the refrigerator, and then just grab and go in the morning. It’s full of fiber and protein, which keeps me full all morning. Plus, unlike a typical granola bar, I know exactly what is in it! And don’t even get me started on those meal-replacement shakes — you know, the ones that have about 35 ingredients. I would so much rather have a freshly made smoothie with ingredients I choose myself.

  1. I recently discovered that I don’t hate peanut butter when it’s in a smoothie. This one sounds protein-packed and delicious!

  2. Making the smoothie now..can’t wait to try it. Think I will leave out the oats for my kids. Can you ‘feel’ them when you drink it?? I think I might throw in a pack of the dole frozen choco bananas instead of cocoa too. I have a freezer full from all the coupons!

  3. Brianna says:

    Just made this and it is delicious! Have always loved pb smoothies but never tried making one at home, but now I can!

  4. Just made it and I love it! Not overly sugary or peanut-buttery, VERY filling indeed, this might just be my go-to breakfast for those work days…

  5. Brittney says:

    Do you know how many calories this has?!?

    • It’s about 500 calories per recipe but you can definitely get 2 servings out of this because it is really filling.

  6. Instead of French vanilla yoghurt what can I use? The brand you mentioned isn’t available in Dubai. Can we use any vanilla flavored yoghurt?

  7. I just made the smoothie and wow! Very delicious. However, i find two spoons of peanut butter is too much. I think i’m gonna either use just half a spoon or cut it out completely next time and put in honey instead. I also did not use oats or chia seeds because i had neither on hand but it was still very yummy.

    • You could also use almond butter if you wanted something slightly less sweet.

      • It was actually too salty for me! Not sure why that was. But thank you for the recommendation :)

  8. Hi I made this this morning as I’m fasting for the month of ramadhan. I got two glasses from it and in just one glass I was full. However it was very thick. Do you have any more oat based recipes?


  9. This was delicious! I left out the pb and it was still really filling 😉 thanks for sharing!

  10. Does it taste ok without bannas/is the consistency okay?

  11. I’m a high school student. It’s very hard for me to eat breakfast all time due to wanting to sleep in because of homework, after school activities, ext.
    I make this shake every night and leave it in the fridge so I can grab-and-go in the morning. It keeps me full throughout the entire school day, and is very delicious!
    Thank you for sharing this with us!

  12. This recipe is so good! I never though I would like something like this because I am big on texture but this is amazing! So glad I found it!

  13. MMM…just came across this post, and can’t wait to try the recipe!!

  14. I don’t kno what i am doing wrong but I add the ingredients in the order and blend and it does not taste good. :(

    This banana pub smoothies are my favourite. A pinch of cinnamon is nice as well. To reduce calories I use almond milk and plain yoghurt.

  17. I made this with 2 Tbsp. powdered peanut butter (PB Fit). It is lower in calories, tastes great and less salt. I also used 1Tbsp. Cacao (organic) instead of the cocoa. I added hemp seeds too!. Perfect and tasty!

  18. I loved this! Made it for my after dinner snack. Its so filling that I put half of it in the fridge for breakfast.

    What if i dont find vanilla yoghurt ? Any substitute that you’d recommend

  20. Isabel Harper says:

    This smoothie was great for a healthy breakfast! I found it better with added ice.

  21. I make this (exact recipe except I use low fat vanilla bean yogurt and Silk Vanilla Cashew milk) and it tastes awesome! It’s a little thick and not chilled at all initially so I added ice cubes the second time per my husband’s request. I found this recipe for my vegetarian best friend while she was visiting me from out of state and now I’m going to continue using it for a protein-filled snack before donating plasma. Thank you for sharing!

  22. Oh yum! I’ve never used oats in a smoothie before! Love that idea!

  23. Yum, this looks delicious! I’m a huge fan of smoothies in the morning. I have all the ingredients to make this one — can’t wait to try it!
