Eating my fruits and veggies is so much more enjoyable when they remind me of my favorite sweet treats. This creamy, cool, and sweet smoothie bowl has all the flavors of banana bread, but with a healthier roundup of ingredients. Here’s what’s inside: frozen banana, almond milk, oats, almond butter, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
Oats in smoothies? I know. But trust me, they’re perfect. Oats add a grounding heft, giving the smoothie bowl a heartier, more filling (banana-bready) texture. But they also add fiber—and so does the almond butter, which is full of healthy fats, fiber, and protein. It bumps up the richness of the bowl, too. The star flavors, though, are the cinnamon spice and vanilla. They’re what give the smoothie that warm and toasty taste we associate with banana bread.
