When you wake up thirty-two minutes late and your hair looks like you washed it three Thursdays ago, you have neither the time nor the patience to watch oatmeal overflow in the microwave.

What should you do?

You simply whip out your blender and then put your oatmeal in a smoothie.
Bada bing bada boom!


  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 medium over-ripe banana, sliced
  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Optional: 1 tsp honey (for sweetness), a handful of spinach, a scoop of plant-based protein powder.


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
