Take the blender and add all ingredients. Add in ice cubes, if using.
Mix everything on high speed until you get an even smoothie texture.
If the smoothie is too thick, add a little more liquid – milk or water. Blend again until everything is well combined.
Taste the smoothie and add additional sweetener if you like. I recommend using date syrup, raw honey or maple syrup, or stevia. This is totally based on your preference.
Transfer the smoothie into a tall glass.
ADD TOPPINGS (optional): I used chopped walnuts, a dash of cinnamon, and hemp seeds. Be creative here and add toppings you like.
Serve and enjoy!
Makes 1 glass that serves 1-2 people. Substitutions You can use rolled or quick oats here. Substitute oat milk with any plant-based milk except coconut milk. Coconut milk won't work well here. Cow's milk is fine. Substitute blackstrap molasses with 1-2 dates, date syrup, maple syrup, or honey. Substitute hemp seeds with ground flax seeds or chia seeds (it will add more fibers and omega-3's). Substitute walnuts with almonds. Instead of nutmeg, you can use fresh or ground ginger. Add just a pinch, don't go crazy because too much will overpower other beautiful flavors inside the smoothie. MAKE IT GLUTEN-FREE: Use certified gluten-free oats.Tips for storing Store in a glass jar with a lid and keep refrigerated up to one day. Add a bit of liquid the next day - milk or water, and just shake it or stir smoothie with the spoon.Pro tips If you want to add some extra fat for energy, you can add a tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter. To make the smoothie more refreshing, you can use ice cubes, OR you can feeze diced apples (preferably overnight). Turn into protein shake: add protein powder (I recommend a natural or vanilla flavor). The best apple for smoothies: I like to use sweet apples, like Gala or Fuji but you're welcome to use sour apples, like Granny Smith. In that case, you may need to add more sweetener. If you are using dates, soak them in warm water for 10 minutes. Drain them before using them.Given nutritional values don't include toppings.Nutritional Disclaimer
