There are a lot of reasons to love smoothies as your morning meal: They're a great way to pack a lot of nutrition into one glass and start the day on a healthy note. They're also usually quick to whip up, and they're perfect to grab as you're heading out the door for a busy day. (Check out these chocolate smoothies you won't believe are healthy.)

This smoothie combines fiber-rich quick rolled oats, a frozen banana, vanilla protein powder, and hemp hearts for a dose of omega fatty acids, along with your favorite oatmeal cookie flavors: cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Plus, this healthy oatmeal cookie smoothie is vegan and gluten-free and has no refined sugar. If you're feeling fancy, top the smoothie with a sprinkle of granola, handful of raisins, a few chopped pecans, and some extra cinnamon.
