Peanut Butter Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie (Dairy Free and High Protein)
Updated: Feb 22
This smoothie is a very filling and satisfying breakfast that will tide you over until lunch. It is packed with almost 40 grams of protein and lots of good flavor, nutrients such as vitamin C and potassium, and digestive enzymes.
What you will need:
Dairy free milk
Real maple syrup
Himalayan pink salt
You will need to freeze bananas and papaya ahead of time. If you don't like papaya or don't have access to it, you can swap it with your favorite berry. Papaya adds some digestive enzymes and vitamin C.
I like to use vanilla almond milk for this recipe for extra sweetness and vanilla flavor. Feel free to use your favorite milk. The salt adds minerals and helps cut the sweet. Cinnamon add a touch of fun flavor but you can skip it if you would like. I use maple syrup because it is a low FODMAP option, but feel free to use honey.
PB2 adds protein and more peanut butter flavor, you can also use PBFit brand. I like to use Bulletproof or Dose & Co collagen for this recipe. You can use protein powder instead, but personally I find dairy free protein powders to have an unpleasant texture. They also tend to take over the flavor of the smoothie. Collagen is a good source of protein but it is not a complete protein without proper pairing. It is missing the 9th essential amino acid, tryptophan. Tryptophan can be found in peanuts, oatmeal, eggs and meat and fish sources. This smoothie creates a complete protein by combining collagen with peanut butter and oatmeal.
Add your frozen fruit first, followed by peanut butter, cinnamon, salt, oats, PB2, maple syrup, milk, then lastly collagen. Blend until smooth.
Sip and enjoy!
1 large frozen banana
1 cup frozen papaya OR 1 cup of your choice berries
1/4 cup quick oats
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 Tbsp real maple syrup OR honey
1 Tbsp peanut butter
2 Tbsp PB2
1/8 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
4 tsp collagen powder (20g protein serving) OR 1 serving of vanilla protein powder
Dice up a ripe papaya and place in the freezer for about 3 hours to freeze.
Slice up a ripe banana and place in the freezer for about 3 hours to freeze.
Once the fruit is frozen, add these to a blender.
Next add your peanut butter, oats, PB2, salt, cinnamon, and milk. Then add collagen or protein powder last to prevent it from sticking to the sides.
Blend everything until smooth.
Pour into a glass and add granola, banana slices, or drink as is.
