Apple-Pear Smoothie (aka Apple Pie Smoothie)
This Apple-Pear Oatmeal Smoothie is a deliciously healthy way to start your day. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and pure vanilla make for a delicious apple pie smoothie flavor.
Have you joined in the smoothie craze yet? Ok, maybe it’s not so much of a craze, but they are crazy good! I love oat smoothies are great for a quick, healthy, and filling breakfast, and they also make a nutritious snack later in the day.
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 apple pie spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and a dash of pure vanilla extract. 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. You can add a little ginger too if you like but I prefer just naturally sweet without.
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 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 aka Apple Pie Smoothie for breakfast tomorrow, anyone? 😉
