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. I made this shake for breakfast today. It was delicious! The only thing that was missing were the dates, I just didn’t have any. Instead, I added a scoop of collagen. I’ll make it again for sure!

    1. Hey Maria,

    Well my blender decided to die 5 seconds into making this – but even chunky, this was delish. Will definitely make again once I get a new blender 🙂

  3. Really enjoyed this, I would of never thought to add the expresso but it was great! Overall this was quick and easy but also super satisfying! Thanks !

    So delicious. I meant to make it for breakfast but made it as a dessert instead. Guilt-free but hit the sweet tooth craving. Yum!

    1. Hey Meagan,
      Fantastic!!🐣 Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your comment, so glad to hear it turned out well for you! xT

  5. Excellent recipe! I’ve been struggling with my appetite lately due to migraines and this hit the spot the day after a particularly nasty one – tasty, easy to get down, and at least somewhat healthy. I’m also a peanut butter fiend, so I added some powdered peanut butter along with the creamy stuff and it was so good!

  6. This came out at a perfect time- we are using this during our morning meal for Ramadan! Nutrient dense and keeps us full until sunset!

    I just made this for breakfast, and it was amazing! Also a very forgiving recipe I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk and date syrup in place of oat milk and dates it was still delicious. A great way to start your day.

    1. Hey Emily,
      Fantastic!!🐣 Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your comment, so glad to hear it turned out well for you! xT

    1. Hey Djienne,
      Happy Monday!! So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks a bunch for trying it out! xx

  8. Any recommendations on how to get more of the date blended? This was awesome, but the little bits were a bit distracting…

    1. Hi Candace,
      Thanks for giving this recipe a try! I would make sure to use a high powered blender, you could also try blending the dates first by themselves with a touch of water. I hope this helps! xx

  9. Delicious. I used almond butter and almond milk. Added chia seeds and used the ground flax too. Also added vanilla protein powder.

    1. Hi Steph,
      Yes, that would be okay for you to do! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    Tried it and love it! Replaced the coffee shots with single serving packet of instant coffee and some extra ice. Filling but not overly filling. I’ll add this to my list of breakfast smoothies.

    1. Hey Nancy,
      Perfect!! Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your comment, so glad it was a hit! Have a great weekend:)

    The best smoothie ever! Love the taste ( and jolt) of iced vanilla espresso too! I start with pulverizing the oats so they blend in seamlessly. I also used almond milk and soaked chia seed instead of hemp. Love it over some ice to keep it super cold. So Yummy!

    1. Hey Pat,
      Fantastic!!🌻 I love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for trying it out! xT

    2. The espresso took things to a whole other level – genius! Another “why didn’t I think of that” moment. Delicious!
