Servings 2 servings
- 2 large organic bananas, frozen (See Notes!)
- 1 cup Almond milk (I use Califia Farms; You can use your fave plant-based milk!)
- 1/3 cup Rolled oats, gluten-free if preferred! (I use Bob's Red Mill)

Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender (adding the frozen bananas, then the rest following) and blend until smooth.
Adjust the amount of milk, depending on desired consistency, adding 1 Tbsp more at a time, if needed.
To serve—grab one or two prepared glass(es) and pour smoothie into each and grabbing a straw. Top with banana slices and a dollop of peanut butter.
Sip and enjoy!
STORAGE: Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, tightly sealed or in a covered mason jar, ensuring that you drink it within the same day for best taste and consistency.
NUT BUTTER: If preferred, you can always substitute peanut butter with Almond butter, SunButter (perfect for allergy-free needs!), Tahini (Sesame Seed Butter), Hazelnut Butter, etc.
SWEETENER: Instead of using maple syrup or Agave, you can ensure that Bananas are well ripened to create more of a sweetness.
TURMERIC: While adding turmeric is optional, it definitely has benefits: powerful medicinal properties, natural anti-inflammatory ingredient, increases antioxidant activity in the body, and more.
FROZEN BANANAS: After peeling + slicing bananas, be sure to store them in a freezer-friendly zip loc or container and freeze for about 2-3 hours (minimum); the longer the better.
