This strawberry oatmeal smoothie recipe is the most filling smoothie recipe I have ever had. It really was “breakfast in a cup”.

The truth is, as much as I love smoothies, I always have to have something with them because I’m always hungry about 1 hour after drinking them. Even if I add extra protein powder to them. But this…. this smoothie was different. This smoothie kept me going ALL morning. In fact, I was so NOT hungry, that I forgot to eat my second meal of the day! Not too bad for a smoothie…

Clean Eating Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie Recipe shown in a glass on a red and white checkered table cloth. It has bananas, strawberries and oats sitting on the table around the glass.

My theory is that the raw oats expand in your stomach to keep you full. It’s high fiber too. So staying full from breakfast to lunch is not a problem. A morning smoothie also makes breakfast fast and portable. Just pour in a cup and go! I do love my morning smoothies….

  1. So when the recipe makes that much, (I’m assuming you drink 1 cup at breakfast) does it keep well in the fridge for the following days?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I usually drink half and mini chef drinks half, or it gets divided between him, myself and my husband. So I’ve never had leftovers. You can either cut the recipe in half or you can put it in the fridge knowing that you may have to blend it again with a little more fruit the next day.

  2. Tricia Parker Oberhelman says:

    Is there a clean whey protein powder you recommend? I can’t seem to find one without any other gunk in it…

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Protein powders are tough. Especially because technically, they aren’t clean anyway. You won’t find protein powder in nature. But there are cleanER brands. I personally get the Natural Factor/Whey Factor brand. There is also one called Only Protein, but it’s pricey.

    2. Janice Markley says:

      I tried this smoothie and you are correct…the old fashioned oats (non-cooked as you mentioned) were the ticket for me. I walk 5 miles daily with my doggies and when i get in the house, I am hungry.The oats were the ticket.

      1. The Gracious Pantry says:

        Janice – So glad the oats worked for you! 🙂

  4. I can hardly wait to try it! I’ve been seeing oatmeal smoothies make they’re way around, but I haven’t tried a recipe yet. This one looks super yumo! Although I think I’ll use frozen strawberries, since strawberries have gotten expensive again ( I miss summer already:). I’m assuming I use less ice cubes?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Ya, if the strawberries are frozen, you may want to avoid the ice cubes all together. Just keep in mind you may need a little more liquid to get everything blended well.

  5. so how many grams of protein does the whey powder add? Could you do it with egg whites instead? Just asking,

    1. graciouspantry says:

      If you wanted to eat them separately, sure. But I don’t put raw eggs in my smoothies because raw eggs rob the body of B vitamins. The amount of protein will depend on the powder used.

      1. Really! I’ve never heard that before about raw eggs. Did you learn that in your classes? I suppose one could use the pastuerized egg whites from a container?

        1. graciouspantry says:

          Yes, I learned that in my nutrition class. To the best of my knowledge, pasteurization doesn’t matter. If they are raw, they rob you of vitamin b. But you should talk to a dietitian about it if it’s a concern. It was just a random thing the teacher mentioned in class. We didn’t go into it at any great length.

  6. kay pearn says:

    what kind of oats do you use?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I used traditional oats.

  7. My mom gave me some whey protein powder a while back and it’s chocolate flavored 😀 I didn’t mind so much about that 😉 It was delicious! But maybe not so clean… but delicious. Thanks!

  8. graciouspantry says:

    No, they are raw.

  9. Very yummy! I made it at night for the morning so I will see how it holds up over night in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Please let me know!

  12. I LOVE these smoothies! They really are filling! On Thursdays I go to dance class at five and don’t get out until nine and I don’t want to eat a huge dinner that late at night so before I go, I whip one of these up and it keeps me full until after dance, then I just have a snack! Awesome recipe, perfect pre workout meal!

  13. graciouspantry says:

    You could just leave the whey out all together and maybe get your protein from eggs or some other source. And yes, mangos will sub just fine. Especially if they are frozen.

  14. radient libra says:

    Are traditonal oats the same as the instant oatmeal with no flavor?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      No. Instant oats are more processed to cook quickly.

  15. new to site want to give these smooties a try w.my new blender! What is whey powder and where do i get it? can i find it at the reg grocery store? also these recipes seem to make A LOT. Im a single person so how do i cut the recipes down?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Welcome! You can cut the smoothie recipes in half. Most will last till the next day, you just have to give them a good shake. And if you still have leftovers after that, you can also freeze them into popsicles. Makes a yummy dessert! Whey powder is a protein powder you can purchase at most health food stores or on line. It can be tough to find a good quality one though and it will largely depend on the area you live in. If you have a Whole Foods, they are a good place to start.

  18. Delicious, I used frozen banana also and half a tsp of local honey and it was like a thick shake. Love this recipe!
    If the whey is flavoured does that make it unclean?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Here’s the thing. You have to understand that protein powders are essentially not clean, regardless of what you buy. You can’t go out into nature and find protein powder growing somewhere. That said, some are better than others and it’s always been my philosophy that the less you add, the better it is. So I stick with unflavored. Many people use flavored though, it’s a personal choice.

  19. I am assumig the oatmeal is not prepard first, you just use it dry out of the container?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Correct.

  20. Drinking it now! Agree with you that of the smoothies I drink in the morning leave me hungry short time later. I have to tell you though, NOT a fan of oatmeal. WF had rolled and steeled cut, I went cheaper, since both said traditional. Either one matter, as in would steel give that less gritty feeling? I have a vitamix (yippe) and used almond milk and also handful spinach, did have to use some honey. If its as filling as a 1/4 cup oats can be, I will suck up that filling and make it a weekly staple!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Steel cut oats are different than traditional oats. I wouldn’t use steel cut in this.

  21. LOVE this breakfast smooothie. i usually hate smoothies in the morning but this one is awesme and like you said , it DOES keep me full for hours!!
    i usually use blueberries instead and coconut milk with hemp seeds or chia seeds and its amazing and nutritous!

  22. First time on the site and I love it! Thanks for all of this great email. When it comes to Whey Protein, I use Jay Robb. It is delicious and the cleanest I have seen…only about five ingredients listed (which is unheard of with protein powders) and has no sugar or cholesterol. It is sweetened with Stevia, which is an acquired taste for some but I love it. Now as far as the smoothie, I love making smoothie, but like you said, they don’t keep me full. Do you cook the oats before you put them in this smoothie? And I only have quick oats bought from the Whole Foods bulk section. Would that work?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kym – Do not cook the oats first. Part of the reason this fills you up is because the raw oats expand in your stomach as they absorb liquid. Jay Robb is pretty good stuff. I like them too. Quick oats are okay, but traditional oats are better. Start with what you have and if you like it, get the other oats at a later date.

  23. This is almost the exact smoothie that I have everyday for breakfast! Here’s my recipe:
    1/2 cup rolled oats
    1 banana
    2 heaped tbs of natural full fat greek yogurt (it is the only dairy I consume each day – but it is optional)
    1 scoop of 100% whey protein isolate (substitute with a vegan friendly protein powder and double amount if not using greek yogurt)
    1 heaped tsp maca powder (smells like peanut butter to me)
    1 tsp chia seeds
    2/3 cup of frozen mixed berries (blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
    1/2 – 1 cup of cool water (depending on the consistency you like – I like my extra thick)
    Once blended to a smooth consistency I add 2 ice cubes and blend again to keep it nice and chilled!
    It is delicious and I think I am actually addicted to it!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Amy – Sounds wonderful!

  24. Just a question.. I have a 4 and 6 year old kid. Is it ok to give this to them?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Julie – I don’t see why not. If you’re nervous about the raw oats, just leave them out. I’ve never heard of them causing a problem, but that doesn’t mean much as I do not have any information or training to back that up.

  25. Shawnae Groenewoud says:

    Can you leave the whey out to make it completely clean?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shawnae – I’m not sure what you mean…

  26. Shawnae Groenewoud says:

    Can you leave the whey protein out of the recipe since it is not technically clean?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shawnae – Definitely!

  27. Yuuumy! I did not add the protein powder. I did add some fresh strawberries and did use a little honey…very good…even my 10 and 12 year old loved it!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sally – Fantastic! 🙂

  28. Cut the recipe in half. It was great. Was afraid I would be hungry really quick, but after a couple of hours and a workout I’m good. How well does it refrigerate if I make the the entire recipe and save half for the next day?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sabrina – You might want to give it a good shake, but it should be fine. Enjoy!

  29. Couldnt you use almond for protien

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      tifftiff – Sure! Whatever you want to use is fine. 🙂

  30. If you pre make this, should you wait to put the oatmeal in until your about to eat it?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Terra – No. You would still put it in with everything else. You are blending everything up. You don’t want any whole oats in there. Also, this won’t keep longer than a day, so I wouldn’t wait too long to drink it. Hope you enjoy it!

  31. jesus ramos says:

    I hate milk or anything that looks like milk. Can I put orange juice instead of almond milk? How will the protein powder taste with orange juice. Do you have any other recipes that are made with juice instead of milk? Thanks

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jesus – I don’t have one with just juice, but it should work just fine. And if you’re worried about adding extra sugar, try water. It won’t be as smooth or thick, but it might work. I haven’t tried it myself, so if you do, let me know how it turns out.

  32. Mary Pat Filer says:

    Wow! Just made this smoothie, DELISH!!!! LOVE IT WILL BE MAKING THIS AGAIN 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mary Pat – I’m so happy you enjoyed it! 😀

  33. Inga Dawn says:

    Can you give me an estimate about the amount of calories in this smoothie? Thanks.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Inga – You would have to enter it into a recipe calculator online. MyFitnessPal.com has a very easy one to use.

  34. Is the oatmeal “chunky” when you drink the smoothie?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Debbie – Not if you blend it well enough. It will depend on the speed/strength of your blender.

  35. I blend the oats into a powder first and then add the remaining ingredients. Love these! I have been experimenting with all kinds of fruits and ingredients. Saw one with peanut butter and bananas. Going to try that next.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sharon – Great idea! And yes, peanut butter and bananas are an amazing combo!!

  36. Hello. I’m confused . . . if there is whey protein powder, let alone almond milk, in this recipe, how can there be only one gram of protein per the nutritional information? Thank you.

    1. Babs – I think because the end result is 5 servings. But as it says on the recipe data, the data isn’t exact. The protein count can also change based on which protein powder you use. These are just ballpark figures.
