Oh my goodness. What to call this? Almond-Oatmeal smoothie? Apple-Cinnamon Smoothie? Paradise in a Smoothie? Who knows.
This smoothie is aaaaaaaamazing. When I took my first sip, I wanted to cry. How could I possibly think that eating well would be too difficult for me? This is so, so good, and so, so good for you. And the ingredients are CHEAP and it is EASY to make. It is also very versatile as far as adding things or substituting ingredients. Going by this exact formula, this smoothie is about 260 calories.
1 cup unsweetened almond-coconut milk
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 UNCOOKED rolled oats (not instant oats)
dash of cinnamon to your taste (I like a lot)
1 T honey
5 ice cubes
Puree it all in the blender. Marvel at the goodness.
This morning, I did two cups of almond milk and added a banana in the mix as well, which took the calorie count up, but I was hungry!
Other options: add nutmeg, or unsweetened cocoa powder? Maybe unsweetened coconut? A bit of maple syrup instead of honey? Ground cloves? Yummo!
