Instant Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie



This smoothie looked so interesting when I pinned it here and seemed like a fun, quick and healthy breakfast. I love smoothies and oatmeal cookies, so the combination had to be delicious. And, a smoothie, so thick you eat it with a spoon - how yummy is that?

I really wanted to try it this morning, but found I didn't have all the ingredients in the original pin - so I adapted the recipe with what I did have in my pantry and fridge. The original recipe may be good and I will definitely try it sometime, but this adapted version was very good too. The oatmeal makes it thick and creamy and it was the perfect breakfast on this hot and steamy morning where we are under a heat advisory.

Here is my version -


Instant Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie

1 package cinnamon and spice instant oatmeal

1 container banana flavored greek yogurt

1/2 cup crushed ice

1/4 cup fat free milk

1 T golden raisins

Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth and creamy. Sprinkle another handful of raisins on top and eat with a spoon. Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday and stay cool today!

  1. Vicky... this looks great! I am going to the store today and will pick up the ingredients. Looks right up my alley!

  2. Yum, I make quite a few smoothies for meals and this is one I will try.

  3. Vicki, your recipe sounds delicious! I love smoothies for breakfast.

  4. Can't believe this...I have put oatmeal or wheat germ or bran in my smoothies for years. Not the flavored instant kind though.I have thought that it's a good way to get more nutrition. We have smoothies quite a bit. I love to experiment with different fruits and flavored yogurts.Now that Greek yogurt is all the rage...I have used it and appreciate it's being thicker and not as sweet.

  5. Yum..looks so refreshing..especially in this heat..

  6. That sounds really good! I love oatmeal cookies.

  7. I am going to have to give this a try. Yes, saw you all were experiencing soaring temps (MIL lives up there). Stay cool.

  8. I bet this was delicious. I have to admit I'm not a fan of instant oatmeal, but I see that the original recipe calls for rolled oats. Will definitely try it. xo Laura
