This oatmeal peanut butter smoothie tastes like a delicious oatmeal peanut butter cookie but is a heck of a lot healthier!

I know it's pumpkin spice everything right now. Heck, I already have a delicious pumpkin spice protein smoothie on the blog. But sometimes you want something other than pumpkin spice but just as full of fall flavor. Oh, and it should taste super unhealthy while being totally healthy.
This healthy oatmeal peanut butter smoothie tastes pretty darn close to a peanut butter oatmeal cookie only without all the calories, sugar and fat. It has banana, almond milk, rolled oats, Greek yogurt, peanut butter powder and honey as the sweetener. What it doesn't have is the chewiness of an old-fashioned oatmeal cookie, but that's okay because it's the holidays and you'll have plenty of opportunities for indulging in baked goods!
If you want a slightly thicker, creamier texture, you can try all-natural peanut butter instead of peanut butter powder. I prefer my Purely Inspired Powdered Peanut Butter, but you do whatever floats your smoothie boat! (I'm also a fan of raw & unfiltered honey, but feel free to use whatever you have in your pantry.)
