This week, I renewed my pledge to good-girl eating behavior: Veggies; all-natural granola things; no chocolate before 10 a.m. Life responded by FedEx-ing me an eight-pound box of freshly baked cookies.

In the interest of maintaining our open, honest (albeit invisible) relationship, I should tell you that Ben’s name was technically on the package. The cookies were a final exam morale-booster sent by the law firm where Ben will be interning this summer. With his quixotic (and semi-infuriating) lack of a sweet tooth, Ben generously bestowed the entire collection of soft, buttery, baby hippo-sized treats upon yours truly. Like a beaver chipping away a tree, I nibbled with determination, leaving behind only a few sad edges…and my dignity.

Remember that deep-fried Chicago weekend that prompted me to bake carrot quinoa muffins? With similar style, this week’s cookiepalooza guided me to my blender. Meet the cure for a cookie hangover, the fried-food fixer, and the morning-grouch eraser: Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies.

After one sip, I concluded that my cookie binge was for the higher purpose of spurring Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies into existence. Karma baby.

Loaded with rich blueberries and reliable banana, the fruit-factor in Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies is deep and satisfying. Greek yogurt and vanilla almond milk create an ultra-creamy texture, honey adds a touch of natural sweetness, and rolled oats provide tummy-satisfying fullness. (Another oat-packed option: this Oatmeal Smoothie recipe!) Spinach and flaxseed are your secret. You can’t taste them, so give yourself a high-five for throwing a stealthy super-food party.

Ingredients to make blueberry cream oatmeal smoothies

Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies reunited a girl and her blender. I haven’t been a smoothie regular since my Jamba Juice days—they seemed like such a production to create at home—but hello, I was mistaken (don’t tell Ben). Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies offer maximum health-factor for minimum effort. Toss everything in your blender, press play, and BOOM. Lean protein, whole grains, fruits, veggies, and dairy delivered directly to your glass. Plus, Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies  are crazy blue deliciousness. After creating Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies, I raided the frozen fruit section of the grocery store, and we’ve been sipping these smooth blueberry beauties almost every morning.

Sweet-creamy-fruity Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothies will keep you FULL all morning, be a healthy day kick-starter, and offset whatever necessary cookie intake comes your way. Don’t you just love karma?

Blueberry “Cream” Oatmeal Smoothies

5 from 3 votes
Deeply fruity, creamy, and not overly sweet, Blueberry Cream Oatmeal smoothies combine all of the good things your body craves—fruits, veggies, whole grains, lean protein, and dairy—into a healthy and addictively delicious drink that will keep you powered for hours.

Prep: 2 mins
Cook: 3 mins
Total: 5 mins

Servings: 2 small smoothies or 1 large smoothie

Ingredients
  

  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 large banana (cut into 1-inch pieces and frozen)
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed spinach
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or your milk of choice

Instructions
 

  • Place blueberries and oats at the bottom of the blender and pulse a few times to crush. Add banana, spinach, Greek yogurt, honey, flaxseed, and almond milk.
  • Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

Notes

For the thickest texture, freeze all fruit before use in the recipe. For bananas: peel and slice into pieces, then freeze in a tightly sealed plastic bag. For blueberries: purchase frozen or spread fresh blueberries on a baking sheet. Place sheet in the freezer, then once the berries have hardened, transfer to a plastic bag and store (this method will keep the fresh berries from completely lumping together).

  4. I was browsing for a smoothie recipe I could make today and I came across this one.  I have made many smoothies, not dissimilar to this one but this was sooooo good, it’s one of my of new favourites.
    I am going to make the others you have posted on here too now!
    I don’t usually leave replys but on this one I just had too. Thank you!

    1. Caroline, I’m so so excited to hear that you enjoyed it! Thanks for taking time to leave your comment and I hope you like the other smoothies too. Have a great day!

  5.   I’ve made it several times and vary the ingredients every time.  Always very good.  I use kale growing in a pot by the front door.  5 stars

    1. I’m so glad you enjoy the smoothie, Barb. That kale pot sounds like it’s in the perfect place for easy use! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your awesome feedback!

  6. Loved loved it! What is the calorie or nutritional info on it though?
    Thanks I’m going to try some of tour other recipes too.

    1. Great question Sarah (and I’m so happy you enjoyed the smoothie)! Regarding nutritional info, this is something that I’ve actually started adding to all of my new recipes, effective January 2016 (you’ll see it in the recipe box at the bottom). Unfortunately, it’s pretty time consuming, so I’m unable to go back and add it to past recipes. If you’d like the nutritional info for any of my older recipes (or really any other recipe or food), you can actually calculate it yourself for free at myfitnesspal.com (this is how I calculate the new recipes on my blog). I’m sorry I can’t give you the information for this exact recipe, but I hope that My Fitness Pal will be a helpful resource for you.

  7. My husband and I recently started this “Blueberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothie”!!
    We absolutely love it. It tastes delicious and is super filling. Thank you so much.5 stars
