Apple Oat Smoothie in a cup

You have to love smoothies. They’re easy to make, taste delicious, and can be made with so many variations. When it comes to having a healthy breakfast or snack, the smoothie is a tasty way to do it. This Apple Oat Smoothie is smooth and creamy, with tons of flavor. And with basic ingredients you probably have at home, you can throw this together whenever you need something sweet, filling, and refreshing.

This Apple Oat Smoothie provides fiber from the oats, apple, and almond butter, as well as vitamins and minerals. You’ll also find it really satisfying with plenty of protein. If you want to get your kids to eat a healthier breakfast, try this delectable smoothie. It’s sweet, but not too much, and it has a lot of great health benefits that you’ll be proud to serve up to your family. Let’s look at what you’ll need to make it.

Main Ingredients

  • Apple. Use your favorite kind, depending on how much sweetness or tartness you prefer.
  • Oats. Use quick cook or regular rolled oats. They both process easily in the blender.
  • Almond Butter. Or your favorite nut butter will work, including cashew, hazelnut, or peanut.
  • Oat Milk. You can also use regular cow’s milk, or any other plant or nut-based milk.
  • Cinnamon. The perfect complement to apples and oats!

How to Make this Apple Oat Smoothie

1. First, core and slice your apple. You might want to remove the skin, but that’s up to you. Then, add all of the ingredients to a blender and cover it with the lid.

How to Make the Best Smoothie

  • Choose the right apple. To get that smooth texture and sweet flavor, make sure that you choose an apple that is not over-ripe or mealy. You want to get one that is firm to the touch and doesn’t give when you press lightly on the skin.
  • Keep your ingredients cold. Smoothies taste best cold, so try to keep your ingredients cold as well or the results will be lukewarm. Except for the oats and cinnamon, I suggest storing the rest in the fridge for a chilled morning drink. You may also add a few ice cubes, of course.
  • Stir if needed. If you find you’re getting chunks in your Apple Oat Smoothie, use the attachment or a spoon (when the blender is off or unplugged) to stir the ingredients so everything blends smoothly and incorporates together. Nut butter can sometimes get stuck to the walls of the blender and needs to be dislodged.

Can this Apple Oat Smoothie be Made Ahead?

Yes, it can. Because this smoothie is not made with ice, it won’t become watered down while stored in the fridge. So you can prepare this smoothie a day or so ahead, or make a double batch, and store what you don’t need. This is great for a grab and go breakfast on a busy morning.

How to Store it

Place the smoothie into a mason jar or another tightly-lidded glass. You can store this Apple Oat Smoothie in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Just pour and enjoy when you’re ready.

What to Serve it with

While this Apple Oat Smoothie is perfectly filling just on its own, you could also serve it with some other items for a breakfast buffet or brunch. Try these healthy Banana Pancakes or Sweet Crepes. If you prefer eggs, you could serve this with The Best Scrambled Egg Toast. These Veggie Egg Cups are also a great choice. This smoothie is really tasty and will go well with whatever you pair it with, so choose any of your favorite dishes.
