This apple smoothie bowl takes less than 10 minutes to make, and is loaded with fiber and omega-3 healthy plant fats. The addition of cinnamon, walnuts, and dates makes it taste like an apple pie smoothie. Yum! This smoothie bowl can be served chilled, warm, or at room temperature. Plus, it's vegan, gluten-free and soy-free.
Apple Smoothie Bowl has 7 key ingredients:
- Rolled oats
- Ground cinnamon
- Unsweetened plant-based milk
- Simple Homemade Date Syrup
- Ground flaxseeds
I used a Fuji apple and unsweetened plain almond milk with this recipe. I've used unsweetened plain soymilk as well and it works beautifully and has more protein than the almond milk, so either is fine.
The apple with the simple homemade date syrup provides a nice balance of sweetness to the spice in the warm cinnamon and nuttiness of rolled oats and walnuts.
If you don't have the homemade date syrup on hand, you can take a pitted date and soak it in hot water for 5 to 7 minutes to soften.
The inclusion of ground flaxseeds provides the daily recommended amount of omega 3 ALAs while also helping to thicken the smoothie consistency along with the blended oats.
How to make this smoothie bowl
- Place all ingredients except toppings into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If you prefer a warm bowl, omit the ice, pour the mixture into a saucepan, and gently warm over low heat.
- Pour smoothie into a bowl, add toppings of choice and enjoy!
Because it's tasty at any temperature, it's great to take on the go or as a simple breakfast to enjoy at home. If the consistency is too runny, add about one teaspoon of ground flaxseed (or more oats) to thicken. If it's too thick, add more unsweetened plant-based milk.
Alternatively, if you'd prefer to make this bowl into a drinking beverage, make sure you chop the walnuts finely or just add them to the blender, so they don't get stuck in the straw. 🙂
My first experience with oatmeal was with the instant apple cinnamon kind in a package. I was in college, and I loved the combination of apples, cinnamon, and oats. Since there's no added sugar, this breakfast bowl won't leave you with that sugar rush and subsequent crash. Instead, you'll feel satisfied without being weighed down.
