Have you joined in the oatmeal smoothie craze yet? Ok, maybe it’s not so much of a craze, but they are crazy good! Oat smoothies are great for a quick, healthy, and filling breakfast, and they also make a nutritious snack later in the day.Apple-Pear Oatmeal Smoothie.

My Pumpkin-Apple Breakfast Smoothie is one of my most popular recipes, so I figured you guys might like a new breakfast smoothie to add to your rotation! This Apple-Pear Oatmeal Smoothie is loaded with healthy ingredients, including oats, Greek yogurt, apple, and pear. It’s lightly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, and a dash of pure vanilla extract adds a little extra sweetness. All of these flavors combine to make a smoothie that just about tastes like apple pie. Yeah, this is a very good thing we have going on here.

I always keep apples in my kitchen, and they are an unlikely yet delicious addition to smoothies. It takes a little bit of extra blend time to achieve a smooth consistency, but the sweet-tart flavor that the apple adds is irresistible.

When I went to edit my photos for this post, I was pretty bummed that you can’t clearly see the pretty red and green flecks of pear and apple skin in this Apple-Pear Oatmeal Smoothie. I promise, if you make this in real life, they are there to add tiny pops of bold color to this otherwise boring-white smoothie. You’ll just have to trust me on this one. Or try it for yourself… Apple-Pear Oatmeal Smoothie for breakfast tomorrow, anyone? πŸ˜‰

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever added oats to a smoothie before, so I definitely need to try this! I love the flavors of this smoothie, Kristine! Anything that tastes like an apple pie is a winner in my book. This looks like the perfect way to start out my day! Pinned!

  2. What a yummy looking smoothie! So healthy and flavorful looking! πŸ™‚

  3. These are some seriously gorgeous smoothies, Kristine! I love that there’s both apples and pears thrown in there! So pretty and healthy-sounding!

  4. Apples aren’t often found in smoothies, but I love this idea! Apples and pears are one of my favorite combos!

  5. Now THIS is a breakfast smoothie I can get behind! Like having dessert for breakfast : )

  6. I tried oats in a smoothie once and the texture was so awful, but maybe there were too many or I didn’t blend long enough? Cause they sure are popular so I must be missing something! I’ll have to try this one, because I love the idea of getting a full breakfast in a smoothie!

    • Did you blend the oats into a powder first before adding the other ingredients? That does help, but the oats do add more texture. Plus the apples in this smoothie make the texture not as smooth, so this might not be the one for you. We do love it, though! I do think you’d like an oatmeal smoothie made with other fruits, like frozen blueberries or strawberries, so long as you process the oats first. πŸ™‚

    • Hi stacey,
      put the oats to soak in the liquid mentioned in the recipe the night before. I did that and it helps, you will not even notice/ taste the oats. It doesn’t matter the quantity of liquid.

  7. I’ve never tried apples and pears in a smoothie! Sounds delicious!

  8. Yum! What a healthy and fun way to enjoy apple pie πŸ™‚ Love the pear, too!

    • Thanks, Medha! Pears are one of my favorite smoothie ingredients. It’s hard to believe that this smoothie is healthy from the taste of it, but it is!

  9. I haven’t tried oatmeal in a smoothie yet! This sounds like a delicious combination of flavors!

  10. I haven’t had an oatmeal smoothie!! Sounds like a really great breakfast idea though! I love pears so this one sounds especially great!!

    • You should try an oat smoothie, Jess! When I first tried them, I wasn’t too sure but now I’m totally hooked! The key is to blend the oats separately first to achieve a smoother texture. πŸ™‚

  11. I love oats, Kristine, and adding them to smoothies can only make a smoothie better! I like the sound of the flecks of color from the skin of the fruit — sounds delicious! πŸ™‚
