Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe
I love delicious smoothie recipes for busy weekday mornings, and as something that even my kids can make for themselves, that's not their favorite sugary cereal. This Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie is simple to make with healthy ingredients like your milk of choice, whole grain oats, and natural sweetness from a banana, honey and frozen strawberries.
Here are the easy ingredients that you will need to make this strawberry smoothie recipe with oatmeal. I also share some tips so that you can have great results making this smoothie in your own kitchen.
- Milk - You can use any milk you prefer or whatever milk your diet allows. I always use almond milk when I make this smoothie for myself, but for my kids, I use 1% milk. You can also use coconut milk, cashew milk, or whatever other milk substitute product you prefer.
- Frozen Strawberries - I love frozen fruit because it's so easy to keep in the freezer for smoothie recipes like this one. The frozen strawberries add some cold and ice to the smoothie, so it's important to use frozen fruit.
- Banana - No need to use a frozen banana.
- Whole Grain Oats - I prefer using whole grain oats in this recipe, rather than the quick oats, but either one can be used with great results.
- Honey - This helps to sweeten the smoothie without using white sugar. The strawberries and banana will naturally add some sweetness, so you may want to omit this entirely, but I love the subtle sweet flavor the honey adds to the smoothie.

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie FAQ's
- What Is The Best Milk To Use For a Strawberry Smoothie?
- You can use whatever milk you prefer in this smoothie recipe. I use almond milk when I make this for myself, but my kids love regular cow's milk (1% or 2%) because it makes it so creamy!
- For a really creamy smoothie try using whole milk or half and half.
- Coconut milk or cashew milk is another great option too.
- Basically, use whatever milk that your body will tolerate or your diet will allow.
- Can I Add Protein To This Smoothie?
- Yes you can. To add some protein to this smoothie, simply use a scoop of your favorite vanilla or strawberry protein powder, and blend it with the other ingredients.
- Can I Make a Strawberry Smoothie without Banana?
- If you're not a fan of bananas then just leave them out. The bananas add such a great creamy texture and it's a natural way to sweeten up the smoothie. But if for whatever reason you don't want to use a banana, then just omit it from the smoothie.
- Can This Be Made Into a Smoothie Bowl?
- Yes, this recipe works great as a base for a smoothie bowl. To make a smoothie bowl, you will need to reduce the milk to ½ cup.
- Pour it into a bowl and top it with your favorite toppings like almonds, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, coconut, chia seeds, etc.
- What's The Point of Adding Oatmeal To Your Smoothie?
- I love adding oats to smoothies. When you add oats to a smoothie, it adds a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals your body needs. It's also great because it helps you stay fuller longer and has a slow release of energy.
- Variation Ideas for This Smoothie Recipe
- Fruit : Use any frozen fruit you want! I love using mixed berries in this smoothie, or you can make it a tropical twist by using half strawberries + half pineapple/mango mix of frozen fruit. You need 1.5 cups of frozen fruit.
- Oats : Whole oats or quick oats will both work fine in this smoothie.
