Sticky Sweet – yet healthy – Banana Oats Smoothie

super healthy low calorie oat and banana smoothie

I am that sort of person who needs their daily routine – food wise. So whenever I travel, I lack the routine and tend to eat too much, and sadly mainly trashy food. Two weeks ago I was scheduled for a business trip to Frankfurt and the night before I browsed through “my feed” on Bloglovin. I stumbled over a deliciously looking picture of Amandas snickerdoodle overnight oatmeal smoothie from Running with Spoons.

Making healthy breakfast choices

The description sounded delicious, too and – best of all – it said it will keep me satisfied for hours as it is full of plant-based protein and fiber.

Come, join my tribe:

No spam, guaranteed!

Right into the kitchen I went

…to realize that I didn’t have – yet again!!! – all the ingredients at hand. *Do you notice a pattern here? I do!* But as I am a trained hobby chef gone brave kitchen hero I checked my cupboards and went on with my mission for a healthy breakfast for tomorrows trip to Frankfurt.


Here is to experiments!

  • 1/2 banana
  •  1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon maple sirup
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla oat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

A tea towel always comes in handy when working in the kitchen. Why not DIY a Beautiful Hand Stamped Dish Cloth for yourself or as a gift idea for friends & family?

I put it all into my mixer and gave it a good blend right away (in comparison to Amanda, who did the blending part after a night in the fridge). I stored it in a tupperware bottle in my fridge over night. See? Easy, peasy! Honestly, the hardest thing was to think of it in the morning and not forget it in the fridge, as I did plenty of times before *add massive eye roll here, please!*. Guess what? To manage this task, I wrote myself a sticky note and stuck it to the door. I figured this will give my head some peace, right? One thing less to think about in the morning when I am merely functioning and stumbling around my apartment like some character from The Walking Dead. And hooray – it worked!

I estimate the amount of calories in this smoothie around 350 kcal. So, for you body conscious peeps out there, it’s good for a breakfast on any given day or a snack on one of THOSE days where you need all the love you can get (or give yourself) and an extra sticky sweet indulgences to make it through the day.
