Take the blender and add all ingredients. Add ice cubes, if using.
Mix everything on high speed until you get an even silky 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 the smoothie is not sweet enough. I recommend using date syrup, raw honey or maple syrup, or stevia. This is totally based on your preference.
Transfer the smoothie into a glass.
ADD TOPPINGS: I used chopped peanuts, a dash of cinnamon, and more peanut butter. 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. You can substitute peanut butter with almond butter, cashew butter. Tahini works well too. Substitute oat milk with any plant-based milk except coconut milk. Coconut milk won't work well here. Cow's milk is fine. Substitute banana with 1-2 dates, date syrup, maple syrup, or honey, and add more oats to achieve creaminess (optional). Substitute ground flax seeds with hemp seeds or chia seeds (it will add more fibers and omega-3's). MAKE IT GLUTEN-FREE: Use certified gluten-free oats.Store in a glass jar with a lid and keep refrigerated up to one day.Pro tips 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. Make sure you're using RIPE BANANA, to achieve targeted sweetness. Given nutritional values don't include toppings.Nutritional Disclaimer
