This easy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Latte Shake with shaken espresso is the sweetest peanutty banana shake. It’s healthy, but yet tastes like dessert! Milk, dates, bananas, oats, peanut butter, and sea salt all blended up until super creamy and swirled with triple shots of vanilla espresso. Add hemp or flaxseed for added protein. So yummy and nutrient-packed! Great for sipping while doing, well, while doing just about anything! Morning, afternoon, or even as dessert.

Well look at this! It’s a drink that’s not a cocktail. Rarely do I share smoothies, shakes, or drinks that don’t require you to be 21 and up. But out of a need for something new, something different, I made us a peanut butter “shake”.

There’s no ice cream, but instead, all healthy, wholesome, nutrient-rich food. And yet this certainly tastes like dessert!

Yummm. We just love that!

The inspiration really was kind of simple. As I said, I really wanted to make something kind of different for myself. Something fresh for spring, that could even go into summertime. I’m in Miami today, so honestly, this would be a wonderful little treat!

Aside from feeling a little bored with recipes, I’ve been obsessed with the combination of peanut butter, oats, and bananas. It all started with these crazy delicious blender chocolate chip peanut butter banana muffins. They’ve since been followed up with glazed banana doughnuts, and trust me, there’s more coming!

I can’t get enough of these flavors. Knowing that peanut butter and bananas make incredible shake ingredients, I went with a shake!

I wanted a few things out of this shake. It needed to be creamy, sweet, peanutty, and very heavy on the vanilla. My dad would make us vanilla milkshakes all the time when my brothers and I were kids.

He’d add so much vanilla, it was his secret (and mine too)!

All you need is milk, use whatever kind you drink. Then add plump dates, bananas, creamy peanut butter, oats, vanilla, sea salt, and a shot or two of espresso.

The espresso can be optional if you hate that idea. But I’m telling you, it works with this shake.

In the blender, soak the dates in the milk for a few minutes to help them soften. Then add the bananas, ideally, I would use frozen sliced bananas. Next add oats, peanut butter, and sea salt. I love to add either ground flaxseed or hemp seeds, they’ll add nutrients and protein! Plus, I think hemp seeds kind of taste like vanilla.

Blend until smooth and creamy. If you want your shake icy cold, add some ice to the mix.

For the espresso, it’s simple. Add a couple of shots of espresso and shake with ice and vanilla. Pour the vanilla espresso into a tall glass, pour the shake over the espresso, and then swirl the two together. Just like a latte!

I top my shake off with a drizzle of peanut butter, cacao nibs, and sea salt. Wow, is it good!! And it fills you right up too. Great for breakfast, as a snack, or even as dessert!

My tip to you today – make yourself, your kids, or whomever a creamy peanutty shake.

Trust me, it’ll be the best drink you’ll make all week!

  1. Hi! I don’t usually comment but I had to! This smoothie is AMAZING. I have made it every day since January when I discovered it. I have made it for all my kids when they come to visit. I go to bed at night thinking of it in the morning!!! I have changed a few things over time to make it a little less calories. I use pb powder and only 1 date. Also use almond milk. Half of a frozen banana and lots of ice!! It is truly my fav recipe of yours and that is saying a lot!! Any other coffee inspired smoothies would be great but not sure you can improve on this one!!! Thank you!!

    1. Hey Maggie,
      Happy Monday!! I am so glad to hear that this recipe is always a winner, thanks so much for making it so often and your review:) Love that it has been a hit with your kids as well! xT

  2. I just received a full on blender/processor kitchen system for my birthday and made this just a little while ago – I guess the latte part will get added to tomorrow’s shake bc I liked it so much as it was without the espresso! I used pumpkin seeds instead of hemp bc I’m meant to eat more of them for full dietary nutrition. I mistakenly added the vanilla to this part of the recipe and a tbsp of devonshire cream left from last night’s rhubarb/custard pie bc that was all there was left of it and while it wasn’t enough to save, I didn’t want to throw it out bc it is so nice.
    Sprinkled cinnamon on top which went really nice with the peanut butter flavour. YUM!!!
    Thank you for this recipe!!!

    I’m 39 weeks pregnant and trying to eat dates every day. I am not exaggerating when I say that this blended latte is the highlight of my day- so delicious and gently filling. And I get my dates in without even noticing!

    This is delicious. I’m in the last few weeks of pregnancy, so I’m trying to eat dates every day and this shake is a fun deviation from eating them plain or in my oatmeal. I’ve made the shake twice, first without the espresso and then the second time with the whole shebang. Both versions were very yummy!

    Changes I made:
    — Both times, I used half water and half milk for the liquid. I soaked the hemp seeds in the liquid while getting the rest of the ingredients together.
    — The second time around, I soaked the dates in boiling water for 15 minutes so they blended better.
    — I used almond butter both times due to personal preference.
    — The second time around, I added ice cubes and half a scoop of vanilla protein powder to make the shake a bit more filling. I’m happy to report that I’m 5 hours out from having the shake and haven’t been hungry since!

    Question: Any tips on making this super thick, almost like ice cream? The protein powder and ice didn’t quite do it for me. I’m not sure what I could add, maybe yogurt instead of protein powder?

    1. Hey Emily,
      Fantastic!! So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it! Thanks for sharing your tips! I would do more frozen bananas to make it thick. Have a great weekend:)
