Oh man, I am way late to the adding-oatmeal-to-your-smoothies party.

(Seriously, how did I miss this?!)

But whatever, better late than never because I’ve got an oatmeal smoothie recipe to share with you today that literally tastes just like an oatmeal cookie.  But this one is minus the guilt because it’s made with healthy everyday ingredients, that also happen to be vegan and gluten-free.

I know I’ve never said this before, but you’ve gotta try it.  ;)

I’ve been making this smoothie all week as a little treat after my morning workout, and it feels exactly like that — a treat.

All of the ingredients in it are totally good for you.  But when combined together, they taste like the most decadent sweet dessert, thus also making this one of those smoothies that you could enjoy just about anytime of the day.  Here’s how to make it:

The key to using oats in your smoothies is to ground them up first.  Just pop them in your blender and pulse about 3-5 times until they’re nice and smooth.  (It takes 2 seconds!)

Then add in the rest of your ingredients — including the vanilla and spices that will have it tasting extra oatmeal-cookie-ish, and pulse until smooth.

The result will be one delicious smoothie that will give you lots of fiber and energy to get through the day.  And it can even satisfy those cookie cravings if you’re looking for a healthier alternative.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

  • 1 frozen (peeled) banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1-2 Tbsp. honey (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • (optional: 1/4 cup raisins)

    Looks good, wish I could see the nutrient values. Any way this could be made into cookies?

  2. Kelsey — June 8, 2014 @ 6:30 pm (#)

    I used McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice (has all the spices conveniently in it!) Definitely something I’ll make again. And some people have been asking for the nutritional value. From what I calculated with MyFitnessPal the *entire* recipe has 236 Calories, about 4g of fat (<1 Sat, 1 Poly, 2 Mono), 160mg Sodium, ~490mg Potassium, 50g Carbs, 6g Fiber, 25g Sugar, and about ~5g Protein. Mind you, I used Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk, a medium sized frozen banana, and Organic Rolled Oats I got from Wegman's as well as local honey. The numbers will vary!

    I made this today as a way to get some more fruit and fiber in my diet and man, it was so good. Tasted just like an oatmeal cookie but in smoothie form. Will definitely make this again.

    Hi Ali , do you think I could add a whole raw egg in this smoothie for nutritional purpose and to make it a lil thicker ?

    • Ali — July 18th, 2014 @ 9:30 am

      If you are comfortable consuming raw eggs, you could give it a try! Otherwise, I would recommend adding an extra banana to thicken.

    I’m so excited to try this recipe tomorrow.

    Just an FYI, your Pinterest link at the bottom of this post doesn’t got to the right account.

  6. Barbara Edwards — August 15, 2014 @ 6:52 pm (#)

    Try adding a tablespoon or so of peanut butter or almond butter. Mmmm!

  7. Emily — September 10, 2014 @ 1:54 pm (#)

    Love this idea! Can I use skim milk in place of the almond milk?

  8. Holly — January 7, 2015 @ 8:43 pm (#)

    How many calories are in the smoothie?

  9. Morgan — February 24, 2015 @ 6:12 pm (#)

    I’m wondering the same as Holly — smoothie says “skinny,” but where’s the nutritional info?

  10. Jennifer — March 2, 2015 @ 8:35 am (#)

    This recipe is really good ! Thank you for posting it.

    sounds yummy! will try in the morning. thanks. #veryveggie

  12. Cryssi Lynn — March 15, 2015 @ 5:42 pm (#)

    So delicious! I have made this twice and really enjoy it. Truly does taste like oatmeal cookies and is very filling. I substitute the almond milk for skim cows milk though because of food allergies and I added a scoop of vanilla bean protein powder to my smoothie. Really great recipe, looking forward to continue making this :) 

    • Ali — March 17th, 2015 @ 9:26 pm

      Thanks Cryssi Lynn, I’m glad you liked it! : )

  13. Doug Hye — March 24, 2015 @ 11:13 am (#)

    Trying this with a tbsp of organic gluten free cacao and coconut crime to give this a chocolate shake flavor. May add Stevia drops, but think it will taste just fine without sweetness. 

  14. Sue — March 25, 2015 @ 8:14 am (#)

    I added a vanilla protein powder and used steel cut oats.
    Yummy! Thanks!

    • Ali — March 25th, 2015 @ 12:29 pm

      Yum, that’s a great idea!

  15. Sarah — March 30, 2015 @ 2:47 pm (#)

    I made this smoothie over the weekend and loved it! Thanks for the recipe! I’ll definitely make again.

    • Ali — March 30th, 2015 @ 10:17 pm

      Thanks Sarah, I’m glad to hear that!

    Thank you. This was delicious.

    FYI- I added the ingredients to MyFitnessPal and got 205 Calories (with 1 tbsp of honey).

      Awesome, thanks for sharing Allyson! So glad you liked it. : D

  18. Katie c — May 25, 2015 @ 11:28 am (#)

    i added a tbsp of almond butter and a bit of maple syrup ;) 
    Didn’t manage to get the oats ground enough this time though.

    • Ali — May 25th, 2015 @ 4:43 pm

      Thanks for sharing, Katie!

  19. Tina K. — June 8, 2015 @ 4:49 pm (#)

    Can’t have almond milk, can I use 1% milk instead?

    • Hayley — June 9th, 2015 @ 8:54 pm

      Hi, Tina, you sure can!

  20. Kelli W — July 29, 2015 @ 12:12 pm (#)

    Oatmeal cookie dough is my favorite, and I love this skinny smoothie option to get the flavor without the guilt. I made it on my blog and loved it!! Thanks for sharing!

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — July 30th, 2015 @ 2:37 pm

      Thanks Kelli, we’re so glad you liked it — and thanks for sharing the recipe on your blog too, it’s super cute btw!

  21. Rebecca — September 2, 2015 @ 11:57 am (#)

    That smoothie looks delicious. During the summer I tend to have almond milk berry smoothies, but this looks like a great idea for when the berry season is over. I am definitely pinning this recipe.

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — September 4th, 2015 @ 1:56 pm

      Thanks Rebecca, we hope you enjoy!

  22. Emily — October 18, 2015 @ 9:40 am (#)

    I’ve made this a couple times, I love it! I’ve been using cinnamon spice instant oats though, so I just use less of the added sugar and spices. Sooo good! 😀

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — October 18th, 2015 @ 12:44 pm

      Thanks for sharing Emily, we’re glad to hear you enjoy this! :)

  23. Jennifer — November 5, 2015 @ 9:54 am (#)

    This was AMAZING! I used cooked oatmeal ( I cook a few servings on the weekend and have in the fridge made for whenever the mood strikes me to add them!) & I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder and hemp hearts. I will DEFINITELY be having this one often! Thanks for the great recipe! 

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — November 5th, 2015 @ 3:36 pm

      Thank you Jennifer, we’re so happy you liked this! :D

    Love this recipe! I used a low calorie shake mix with it for added nutrients.  

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — January 17th, 2016 @ 10:35 pm

      Thanks for sharing, we’re so happy you enjoyed it! :D
