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!
