Tips and Tricks
I wouldn't suggest adding ice cubes as they thin the smoothie down. Instead, use chilled milk and frozen banana to ensure the oatmeal banana smoothie is thick and super chilled.
Adjust the milk to get the required consistency.
Too thick: add more milk to thin the smoothie down.
Too thin: add banana or oats to thicken the smoothie.
Both old fashioned rolled oats and quick oats work in this recipe. So use whichever you have on hand.
It is a filling breakfast smoothie that keeps you full until lunchtime.
This banana oat smoothie tastes best when consumed immediately. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge or freezer to use later. However, the taste may not be as good as freshly made.
Fridge: Store leftover smoothie in an airtight container or a jar with a lid on in the fridge and finish it off in a day.
Freezer: Consider storing the leftover smoothie in the freezer for a longer shelf life. Either store it in a freezer-safe mason jar with a lid on it or in an ice cube tray.
