A Twist on the Smoothie

1 Comment

After my 5 mile run this morning I wanted something cold and refreshing for breakfast.  So, I made my current favorite smoothie but with a twist: I added strawberries.  🙂

It might sound weird to have strawberries with peanut butter, and maybe even with oatmeal.  But it was actually really good.  The strawberries added a nice extra natural sweetness for a change of pace.  Definitely a winner!

Strawberry Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie


  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 banana
  • scoop peanut butter
  • 3-4 strawberries
  • ice
  • handful chocolate chips
  • chocolate syrup


  1. Cook oats in microwave with 1/4 cup water 1-2 minutes or until they reach desired consistency.  Chill in fridge while assembling other ingredients.
  2. Add banana, peanut butter, strawberries, ice, and chocolate chips to blender.  Add cooked oatmeal.  Blend until it reaches desired consistency.
  3. Add chocolate syrup depending on individual taste.  Enjoy!

  1. I think strawberries and peanut butter are a natural combination!! PB&J!! 🙂 As for the oatmeal, I think strawberries work with oatmeal therefore all of those things must work together. Glad you found something you really enjoy!
