Smoothies and overnight oats are winning the breakfast game right now, so why not combine the two to create the ultimate morning meal? Enter… smoatmeal! Oatmeal lovers, no need to abandon your breakfast fave in the summer heat, and same goes for you, cold drinkers, in the middle of winter. By adding raw, cooked, or soaked oats to any smoothie recipe, you can still get the nutritional perks of oats with the taste of a refreshing smoothie. Once you try the crunchy kick, you’ll never go back to your OG breakfast.
A fresh twist on a classic duo, this smoothie bowl pairs one of our all-time favorite combos, strawberry and banana, with quick oats to create a healthy and easy option for busy mornings.
Getting ready to sweat? This recipe is an ideal preworkout snack thanks to energizing honey and banana and protein from oats, nut milk, and vanilla protein powder.
This one had us at chocolate. With chocolate chips, maple syrup, and a hint of vanilla, it’ll satisfy your sweet tooth, while the addition of Greek yogurt and almond milk turns it into a protein-packed meal.
What says summer better than peaches and honey? Naturally sweetened, this bowl is great for refueling post-workout. To eat it year round, swap in frozen or canned peaches (without the sugary syrup).
If you’re looking for a simpler approach to smoatmeal, try this five-ingredient (blueberries, oats, soy milk, banana, walnuts) recipe. It’s the perfect combo of smooth and crunchy.
Keeping the prep under five minutes gives you time to get creative with your toppings. A DIY seed mix, homemade granola, toasted nuts, or sliced fruit will jazz up the otherwise simple recipe.
Meal preppers, this one’s for you. Soak the oats overnight and blend in the remaining ingredients in the a.m. The oats become super soft and blend easily to create a smooth and creamy consistency.
Summer is the time to make the most of fresh fruit, and this recipe definitely delivers. Made with mango, papaya, banana and coconut, not only will you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation with just one bite, but the protein and fiber from the oats will leave you feeling energized and full all morning.
