    This is a perfect on the go or kiddie-pleasing (or mom-pleasing) breakfast. Sweet, creamy, easy with great flavors.

    I’ve had SUCH a crazy week; going to finally edit my pics…today! Will be in touch with how things are shaping up :)

    Ooo, addition of the chopped date is very cool! In the mornings, I tend to not have enough brain power to change up my cereal+milk or oatmeal+honey. This sounds so yummy I just might have to, though!

    What a great way to use leftover oatmeal. I cannot wait to try this. Digging that flavor profile, Brandon!

    This looks amazing…I love both smoothies and oatmeal so first thing tomorrow morning, I’ll be making this tastey treat! I bet this would hit the spot after a long workout, too! Thanks for the great recipe.

    This sounds yum! If you don’t have a microwave, how long would you recommend cooking the oats in water for? Thanks!

    I’ve never really thought about adding the oatmeal to the smoothie, but I get one at Jimbo’s that adds wheat germ, so why not? I think I love everything about this creation!!! A perfect snack for the girls as they are headed to an evening of dance rehearsals. Brilliant!!

    I make a similar smoothie using oat bran porridge. One part organic oat bran to 4 cups organic almond milk cooked with a couple of shredded apples, cinnamon and nutmeg, finished with vanilla. I top it with berries, toasted unsweetened coconut, almonds and sesame seeds. After reading this smoothie recipe, I nuked oat ran with almond milk, plopped it in the blender, added the goodies and drank my oat bran. Brilliant and very healthy.

    My kids and I loved this smoothie! I used vanilla soy milk, added a little cardamom, omitted maple syrup (none on hand), and added some spinach. It was delicious!!

    This is a nice smoothie. That mix of turmeric, cinnamon, and lemon makes it not only taste great, but a lot of rich benefits and properties in the spice and fruits.

    I have been making smoothies with oatmeal for years, and as a few other writers have mentioned, there is no reason to go to the trouble of cooking it first. Seems to me it just adds an extra step. I add strawberries and bananas to mine, and usually use soy or almond milk. I have also added protein powder. Use whatever you have in the fridge. I tend to use more oatmeal than in this recipe but it depends on your taste. The biggest benefit I have found is that after you drink a smoothie made with a substantial dose of oatmeal you will feel comfortably full and satisfied for many hours.

      Interesting! I’ll have to try with just raw oats. But I agree with you that an oatmeal smoothie definitely keeps me full for most of my morning. Love it!
