Oatly Summer Fruit Smoothies

The second recipe that Oatly sent me was for a summer fruit smoothie - perfect for breakfast while it's still warm as we come towards the end of summer. This is a nice thick smoothie, which you can adapt to your own taste, depending on what your favourite berries are.

Please note: The recipe states honey but I explained to the lovely lady from Oatly that this would mean it's not vegan - so she has updated it to maple syrup instead. Also, the recipe states you can use fresh or frozen berries. I opted for frozen raspberries, so I got a nice thick (pink!) cold smoothie. If you would rather use fresh berries then I would recommend freezing your banana so you still get the cold elemtent - but it's up to you! (Smoothies are a great way to use up those leftover bananas with black spots!)

Oatly Summer Fruit Smoothies

Makes 600ml

400ml Oatly Oat drink, chilled
200g fresh or frozen summer berries
1 large ripe banana
1 tbsp maple syrup or to taste

1. You can use whatever berries you like - strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries all work well.

2. Pick your seasonal favourite, try a mixture or use a bag of mixed frozen berries for a super-chilled smoothie.

3. Simply put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth. Taste and add more maple syrup if necessary. Serve chilled.

Look how pink it is!!!!!

The recipe in this blog has been provided by Oatly but all opinions stated are my own.


  1. I am looking forward to trying out my Oatly soon, your summer fruit smoothie looks really appealing.

    1. It was very nice. I usually bulk up my smoothies with some oats but this was filling as it was.

  2. We also just like smoothies! Lots of yummy fruits and veggies in a fun cup, how can that not be awesome?!? best site

  3. An alternative to purchasing many low-fat or no fat commercial snacks from your local supermarket is to make homemade smoothies. Homemade smoothies are not at all difficult to make.
