How to make an oatmeal smoothie

If you’ve never had an oatmeal smoothie, you’ll be surprised how good it is. I was hesitant at first, but now I’m a convert!

When making oatmeal smoothies, you can either chop up the oats in the blender before adding the other ingredients, or just blend everything at once.

If you have a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, you don’t need to worry about chopping the oats first. They’ll blend right up!

For other blenders, just add the oats to the cup and pulse a few times before adding the other ingredients.

Layer in your ingredients. You want to put the heaviest items last, as they will help push down the other ingredients to blend easier.

If your oats are already in the blender, don’t worry about it! Put the rest of the ingredients in the blender in this order: 

  • Milk
  • Yogurt
  • Blueberries

Adding spinach or other greens? Add to the blender before the fruit.

Place the lid on the blender and blend until completely smooth, increasing the speed as it blends if you like.

What can I add to oatmeal smoothies?

One of the best things about smoothies is how customizable they are.

Simply swap out the fruit or add greens and you have a new flavor!

Replace some of the blueberries with spinach for a blueberry spinach smoothie.

Add a banana for a super creamy blueberry banana smoothie.

Try with strawberries, cherries, or any of your favorite fruits.

Use frozen fruit for a creamier cold treat.

Want your blueberry oat smoothie sweeter? Add a small amount of maple syrup, honey, or agave.

For spice, add ground cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, or ginger.

FAQ

What kind of oats do I need for oatmeal smoothies?

Because you are blending the oats, you can use either rolled oats (old fashioned oats) or quick oats.

Do not use steel-cut oats, which need to be soaked before use and generally are not tolerated well raw.

How do I make my smoothie thicker?

If you prefer a thick smoothie, use frozen fruit. You can also use a thick yogurt in place of standard yogurt. Or, simply omit the milk.

How do I make my smoothie thinner?

For thinner smoothies, add more milk. You can also add water if you like, though the texture will not be as creamy.

Can I make oatmeal smoothies in advance?

We prefer to drink our smoothies immediately after making, but you can store smoothies in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.

You can also freeze smoothies in a freezer-safe lidded jar. This is a great option for packing in lunch bags or picnics. They’ll thaw during the day while keeping the rest of your items chilled.

Can I make oatmeal smoothies vegan?

Yes! Swap the milk and yogurt for your favorite plant-based varieties.
