10+ Breakfast Smoothie Recipes with Oats

I love making smoothies for breakfast. They’re quick, easy, and satisfying! But sometimes you need more than just some fruit and liquid. Protein is important in the morning, and that is where oats can come in!

While protein powder is a great source of protein in smoothies, you might not always have it on hand.

Oats can be a great alternative! Adding a few tablespoons to your favorite smoothie ups the protein intake and even adds texture.

How to Add Oats to Smoothies

The easiest way to add oats to smoothies is to just blend them up with all the other ingredients. I usually just use rolled oats. They blend up pretty nicely as is, or you can soak them first for a less gritty finished texture.

My friend Amanda over at I Live For Greens has a whole article on adding oats to smoothies. If you’re looking for advice on using steel cut oats in smoothies, oat flour, etc. check that out!
