Extra creamy and legit delicious, this blueberry avocado smoothie with oat milk is a nutritional bomb that is bursting with flavour. This is a vegan smoothie with oat milk that will have you totally converted.
Whether or not you're a smoothie person, you're bound to love this blueberry and avocado smoothie, simply because it tastes delicious and it takes five minutes to make. I love oat milk smoothie recipes for breakfast because they have a very faint hint of oatmeal. You might not even know it's there because the other ingredients often overpower it, but now and then you get a hint, especially if you use an organic type that has a more oatmeal-y taste.
This blueberry avocado smoothie recipe is the stuff of dreams for those who don't particularly enjoy green smoothies but still want to get a healthy dose of vitamins and the good kinds of fats in the morning. As you can see from the pics, the blueberries paint this smoothie completely purple, but there's avocado, banana, and chia seeds in there for a nice dose of healthy fats, vitamin E, and potassium.
What nutritional benefits does this berry smoothie with oat milk provide?
One serving of this smoothie provides you with 14 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and 14 grams of unsaturated fat (mostly coming from the avocado and chia seeds).
The avocado will also provide you with Vitamin K, folate, Vitamin C, and potassium, as well as healthy doses of Vitamins B5, B6 and E. Add to this the fiber and antioxidant properties of the blueberries, the omega-3 fatty acids from the chia seeds and the potassium in the bananas and you get a super healthy breakfast that will keep you full till lunchtime.
Tips for an extra creamy smoothie with oat milk
Unlike in the case of non-vegan smoothie where you can use Greek yoghurt to obtain a creamy texture, smoothies with oat milk need to use something to make up for that, since the milk itself has basically the consistency of water and will not bring too much creaminess to the table.
The avocado gives this smoothie a great creamy texture, and I also recommend the bananas and blueberries to be frozen (or at least one of them) for the texture to be truly perfect. I always freeze all the bananas that look overripe so I have them handy in the freezer for smoothies.
If you want the smoothie to be extra frosty, you can add a couple of ice cubes to the mix as well, but not too many because you might lose the flavour.
I don't like smoothies too sweet and I think that the sugar from the bananas and blueberries is absolutely enough for this smoothie, but you can add 1 tablespoon maple syrup for extra sweetness.
