These Healthy Banana and Oat Smoothies are a HUGE hit in our house!! The kids can’t get enough of them – especially when we make and freeze them using our Sinchies Pouches!
This method makes them a healthy and convenient snack that’s ready-to-go when you are! We use them for lunch-boxes, on-the-go snacks between after-school activities and as a healthy snack for my toddler!
Banana & Oat Smoothie Recipe –
- 2 Bananas (chopped and pre-frozen)
- 1/4 cup of Quick Oats (you can use standard Oats)
- 3/4 cup of plain greek yoghurt
- 1 1/2 cups of Milk
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 2 teaspoons of ground Cinnamon
Mix the Oats and yoghurt in a air tight container and refrigerate for at least two hours (I usually do this in the morning). Once the Oats have softened in the yoghurt I pour them into an ice-cube tray and freeze.*If you enjoy smoothies regularly you may wish to double, or even triple this amount and save for future smoothies.
I then add 4 of the frozen ice-cubes of Yoghurt and Oats into a 1 litre Sinchies Bag with 2 chopped Bananas – this is then returned to the freezer in batches with the added ingredients written on each pouch *pictured below.
It’s simply then a matter of grabbing out each large bag, throwing the frozen contents into a blender with the milk, honey, cinnamon and then blend. This recipe creates a wonderful frozen and creamy texture.
This smoothie mixture can be served immediately or poured into these convenient re-usable 200ml Food pouches or these convenient 80ml Pop pouches and Frozen. These can be placed in your child’s lunch box for a chilled lunch or thawed overnight in the fridge for a healthy and easy breakfast on the run…just shake and sip!!
My toddler loves a cool afternoon snack served in these great 80ml Pop Pouches – It even catches the drips!!
And here’s another great way to use your Sinchies! Simply fill and freeze any leftover pancake batter and defrost in some warm water – simply pour into the pan for some freshly cooked and individually sized pancakes!
