❀️ Why you will love this recipe

  • Quick: Throw this protein shake together in just 5 minutes. It’s a great addition to any busy morning routine.
  • Perfect anytime: Apple Pie. Perfect for July 4th, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas…Valentine’s Day…Halloween…apple pie is always a good option! This always-appropriate Apple Pie smoothie is just SO good! I love this perfect smoothie as a delicious breakfast, light lunch, or post-workout snack.
  • Healthy ingredients: There is no sugar in this healthy breakfast smoothie! The sweetness comes from the fresh fruit and maple syrup which is optional. 
  • It really tastes like apple pie: Thanks to the oatmeal, cinnamon, and real apples, this apple oats smoothie has such a cozy flavor, just like the well-loved, classic dessert! Who knew apple pie could also be a nutritious breakfast?
  • Health benefits: Apples are high in vitamin C, potassium, and Vitamin K; oatmeal provides extra fiber and energy, protein fills you up and keeps you feeling full. Cinnamon helps control blood sugar levels and may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. This oats smoothie recipe is a great boost to your immune system which is so important on any weight loss journey.
  • Extra filling smoothie: This filling breakfast smoothie recipe has high protein which really makes you feel full! This is vital for weight management because you’re less likely to overeat if you fill up on healthier, low-calorie foods like weight loss smoothies, as opposed to a high-calorie smoothie with peanut butter or almond butter.

πŸ—οΈ Key Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Apples: 2 whole apples are used in this recipe. I recommend using sweet apples like Gala or Roma. See below for a few more varieties.
  • Raw oats: Regular, rolled oats, quick oats, instant oats, or gluten-free oats, uncooked. You can use any kind of oat because the blender makes it completely smooth, and you’re not left with any dry oat chunks.
  • Protein powder: You can use unflavored & unsweetened, or vanilla protein powder, either dairy or plant-based protein. Check the carbs to keep them low-carb! I use this one (less sweet) or this one (sweeter).
  • Cinnamon: This spice is a must in any good apple pie!
  • Milk: For this recipe, I prefer either unsweetened almond milk or oat milk. The almond milk will have fewer carbs. I’ve made it both ways – both are great! You can also substitute your own choice of milk, like coconut milk, soy milk, low-fat milk, etc. 
  • Maple syrup: This is optional, definitely a good idea if you’re using unsweetened protein powder, but feel free to skip it. Agave nectar or honey are good substitutes.
  • Vanilla extract: This brings out all of the warm and sweet flavors perfectly. Totally optional.

🍎 What kind of apples should I use?

Any sweet apples will work! The apples we had delivered were called “sweet dessert apples” – small and very sweet. Other common apples that would work:

  • Gala
  • Golden Delicious
  • Pink Lady
  • McIntosh
  • Roma
  • Honeycrisp
  • Ambrosia
  • Red Delicious
  • If you prefer a bit of tartness, Granny Smith is a great option!

πŸͺ„ What else can I add to this healthy smoothie recipe?

  • Ground flax seeds: Loaded with omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, this is a great way to boost the nutrition in this recipe. Add up to 1 tablespoon per serving.
  • Chia seeds: You can add ground or whole chia seeds to this recipe for even more omega-3s. I add 1-2 tsp chia seeds.
  • Greek yogurt: If your ideal smoothie is a little creamier, please add some Greek yogurt! It has protein in it and is so satisfying.
  • Banana: Either fresh banana or frozen banana makes this smoothie sweeter and even more satisfying with fewer calories. I’d skip the maple syrup if you’re adding banana.
  • Toasted pecans or walnuts: This is an optional garnish, but SUCH a good idea if you have some in your pantry. They add some healthy fats and a boost of energy.
