It has the nutrition of oatmeal with less carbs and more protein. Plus it includes some cool fat burning properties thanks to two secret ingredients (read on to find out more!)
As an ACE certified group fitness instructor, I am constantly trying to find the best healthy recipes that will help my clients lose weight without sacrificing taste. Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. Eating a filling and healthy breakfast everyday is key for losing weight (read more about it here). This Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie is an easy way to make sure you’re getting a filling breakfast full of fiber, protein, and whole grain. Drink this healthy vegan smoothie for breakfast every morning and you’ll lose weight in no time!
Here are the ingredients for your healthy and filling Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie for Weight Loss:
- Rolled oats
- Frozen banana
- Almond milk
- Creamy peanut butter
- Vanilla protein powder
- Ground cinnamon
- Cayenne pepper
- Sea salt
- Liquid stevia (optional)
And before you decide I’m crazy for including cayenne pepper in a breakfast smoothie recipe with oatmeal– hear me out! A pinch of cayenne pepper is one of the key ingredients that makes this a weight loss Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie. The main active ingredient in cayenne pepper is capsaicin, a thermogenic chemical that is shown to speed up metabolism, reduce cravings, and burn more calories (read about it here). Just a pinch of cayenne pepper in your morning smoothie can help you burn more calories throughout the day, which is great for weight loss. And since it’s just a pinch, you won’t even taste it but your metabolism will feel it!
The other secret fat burning ingredient I’ve included in this Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie is cinnamon. Cinnamon has been shown to reduce the effects of eating high-fat food and have a positive effect on your blood glucose levels (more information here). As a bonus, it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial which can help keep your immune system strong. Did you eat one too many slices of pepperoni pizza last night? A little cinnamon in your breakfast smoothie can work wonders!
While neither cayenne nor cinnamon is a miracle weight loss food (truthfully those don’t exist) and the research on them with regard to weight loss is limited, it doesn’t hurt to try right? When it comes to weight loss, every little bit helps! And cayenne and cinnamon aren’t the only ingredients in this super healthy breakfast smoothie that will help you lose weight. Let’s go through some of the other weight loss ingredients in this Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie!
Fiber and protein are extremely important for healthy, long-term weight loss and this breakfast smoothie with oatmeal has both! Oatmeal itself can help you lose weight because it has a high fiber content and keeps you full for longer. Oats are considered whole grains, which are recommended as part of a healthy diet. One half cup of rolled oats contains 2 grams of dietary fiber, 3 grams of protein, and 0 grams of sugar! The addition of oats to this breakfast smoothie gives it a higher fiber and protein content than most traditional smoothies, which will help you lose weight faster!
So can you put raw oats in a smoothie? Yes! There’s no need to cook the oats for this Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie– just throw them in the blender and you’re good to go! It’s so easy. And what kind of oatmeal do you put in smoothies? Old fashioned rolled oats are great because they’re minimally processed and so good for you! You can also use quick oats for this breakfast protein smoothie. A pinch of sea salt in the smoothie helps bring out the flavor of the oats!
And in case the protein and fiber from the oatmeal aren’t enough for you, you’re getting an extra boost from the peanut butter, banana, and protein powder! This Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie is guaranteed to keep full all day with 10 grams of fiber and 28 grams of protein. How’s that for a healthy start to your day? As a weight loss bonus, this Peanut Buter Oatmeal Smoothie will help curve your sugar cravings because it tastes decadent without any added sugar. The banana adds a little natural sweetness, but if you need more, you can add a few drops of liquid stevia. Stevia is great for weight loss because it contains zero calories and won’t spike your blood sugar.
This filling Peanut Butter Oatmeal Smoothie for Weight Loss has all the healthy ingredients you need to lose weight and feel great! If you’re looking for an oatmeal smoothie recipe that’s hearty, filling, vegan, and super healthy, this is the only one you’ll ever need! You can even use the same basic oatmeal smoothie recipe and replace the peanut butter with cacao powder (chocolate oatmeal smoothie), 1/2 cup of frozen berries (very berry oatmeal smoothie), or anything else you can think of! You can also replace the peanut butter with almond butter or even sunflower butter for a nut free version. The sky’s the limit! Enjoy! 😋
