I partnered with Quaker to create this Meal-in-a-Glass Oatmeal Smoothie. Let’s take your traditional bowl of oatmeal and blend it into a simple 5-ingredient smoothie! Quaker Oats are 100% whole grain and a good source of fiber to help support a healthy digestive system. Oats have a unique nutrition profile with a balance of both insoluble and soluble fiber. So blend up a fiber-rich smoothie (7.5g of fiber to be exact) today and your body will thank you for it! This recipe post is sponsored by Quaker, but the thoughts and opinions are my own.

Could you use a green apple instead of the banana in this recipe? Almond milk yogurt?
Yes, you can use a green apple in the smoothie or 1 cup of any type of fruit you’d like. And you can use any type of yogurt you’d like. NOTE: The nutrition information was done using organic 2% plain Greek yogurt which usually has more protein than plant-based yogurts.

Not a breakfast person till this light but filling baby came into my life. Thank you for sharing.
Would you be able to use kale instead of spinach??

Yes, kale works and I love it w/ kale. Spinach and baby kale have more subtle “green” flavors. Cheers! xx

I love bananas and oatmeal-especially in the mornings. And I often have more fresh spinach on hand than I know what to do with. This smoothie is very tasty and filling and was soothing to my tummy. The cinnamon gave it a “warm” taste (if that makes sense) which was a nice surprise. I always enjoy finding delish and uncomplicated recipes on your website that always make me feel good. Thank you!
