Turns out if you a tell a toddler their Apple Oatmeal Smoothie is an oatmeal cookie milkshake….they will devour it. I mean, who would turn down a treat?
It’s no secret that I have a
large place in my heart for sweets. Remember my Salted Caramel Chocolate Oat Bars? Life is about balance. So, I believe a day started with an Apple Oatmeal Smoothie and lunches filled with a nutritious, Kale Power Salad energizes me through the endless playdates I have with my 2 littlest loves. And a dinner of dark chocolate and wine perfectly acceptable. Please, no judgment. I am not alone here, am I?
What about apple and oatmeal smoothie benefits?
Delicious, creamy and sugary apple pie will about make anyone giddy. I love the flavors so much (my hips, not so much) that I knew, this rolled oats smoothie was on my to-make list this fall. The peanut butter adds creaminess and protein with a touch of salt that complements the sweetness wonderfully. And not to mention, healthy fats to help keep you full. Lastly, oatmeal. May seem odd but I believe this is what brings out the ‘pie’ flavor! Are you wondering how oats in a smoothie benefit you? Oatmeal is full of fiber and helps stabilize blood sugars.

The beauty of this Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal Smoothie is it is a nutritional powerhouse, so be naughty and indulge with whipped cream!
