Smoothie Sunday: Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Smoothie

The last oatmeal smoothie I made turned out really yummy, so I wanted to give another one a shot. Again, I used overnight oatmeal as a base.  This time I decided to use more traditional oatmeal additions in the form of cinnamon apple.  Since I don’t have a super-mega blender I knew that blending fresh apples would be rather difficult.  So instead I opted to use dried apples, rehydrated in the oatmeal overnight.  It worked out really well.  I also upped the apple flavor by adding applesauce.  Overall it was another successful oatmeal smoothie!

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Smoothie:

  •  ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 5.3oz. container greek yogurt (vanilla or apple flavor)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • ½ cup dried apple slices
  • 4 ice cubes
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • Cinnamon sugar to taste
  • Salt to taste

The night before, combine the first 5 ingredients in a container. Stir well, cover, and leave in the fridge overnight.  To make the smoothie, combine the overnight oatmeal, the ice cubes, and the applesauce in a blender.  Blend well, until ice and apples are smooth.  Add the cinnamon sugar and any additional salt.  Blend until well mixed.  Once the flavor is to your liking, pour into a tall glass, and enjoy!
