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!
