Because smoothies are all the rage in my house right now. What’s for breakfast? SMOOTHIES.  What kind of smoothies? Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Protein Smoothie. That’s a mouthful of words, isn’t it?

The smoothies that I bring into this world rarely contain dairy. First, milk is my stomach’s arch nemesis. My stomach and milk have duked it out many times. As a result, milk often wins the battle and I end up with a stomach ache. However, if I utilize the Lactaid super power, I’m usually okay with milk. Lactaid helps me destroy milk’s evil, destructive digestive destroyer lactose. BUT, I don’t really like taking lactaid.

And I don’t like nasty battles, so I play it safe and make non-dairy smoothies.

If milk is your arch nemesis too, then this smoothie is your new best friend. I made this Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Protein Smoothie with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Milk with a hint of honey. No lactose. Nada. None. Zilch.

    I am totally obsessed with the Touch of Honey Almond Breeze, so I am ALL over this blendy goodness! Pinned!

    • The oatmeal is great because it makes a smoothie so much thicker and richer and it’s absolutely filling, too! The touch of honey almond milk is my new fav and now I am on a mission to find it in my grocery store – it wasn’t on the shelves when I checked today. Boo!

      Thanks for the pin, Taylor!

  11. I just discovered the idea of oatmeal in a smoothie. I know. I know. I’m slow. But I didn’t have a nutribullet till recently. Now life is a little different. Thank you for the reminder about Almond milk in smoothies. I will have to pick up a container. I always have strawberries on hand.

    • I only started using oatmeal in smoothies recently, so I was a little slow, too. :) Hope you enjoy the almond milk in the smoothies. The hint of honey is great so if you can find it, I definitely recommend giving it a try.

  12. Oh Julie, this looks absolutely amazing! I need that almond milk in my life stat. A touch of honey? Uh yeah sign me up! And strawberry banana anything for life!

    • It’s great, Mary Frances. The only downfall is that I haven’t been able to find it at any of the stores around my house!

  19. I wish there was a way to try the milk before I buy it. I need to see what their smallest package is. Since I can’t stand yogurt this smoothie looks like a good option for me and my first smoothie ever. 7 grams of fiber is a big plus. Can you freeze it in two separate containers, one for now and one for later? My stomach is small. I have a hard time eating 3/4 of a can of wonton soup. Thanks so much, Cindy 

  20. Very good!
