It’s officially fall! My favourite time of year. There’s something about September that puts me in an optimistic mood. It used to mean a new pencil case and fresh binders (anyone else get as excited as I do about new school supplies?). But now, I get excited for crisp mornings and fall fashion. I love sweater weather.

It might be getting cooler outside, but that doesn’t mean we need to give up our morning smoothies! This Apple Cinnamon Smoothie is a great breakfast choice for busy mornings. With rolled oats, almond butter, hemp hearts and chia seeds, the protein and healthy fats will keep you full until lunch time.

This smoothie is also perfect for meal prep. Make it the night before and the rolled oats and chia seeds combine to create an even thicker consistency.

Ingredients

Ingredients to make apple cinnamon smoothie viewed from overhead
  • Apples – large size, a sweet variety is best. Keep the skin on for the fibre!
  • Almond milk – or any milk of your choice
  • Rolled oats – brings nice texture to the smoothie by thickening it. Be sure to use a gluten-free variety, if needed.
  • Almond butter – any nut butter works, or use Sunbutter for a nut-free option
  • Hemp hearts & chia seeds – excellent sources of protein and healthy fat
  • Medjool date – added for sweetness. Be sure to remove the pit! You could substitute with a tablespoon of maple syrup.
  • Vanilla
  • Cinnamon
  • Ice cubes – 2 large handfuls or about 8 regular-sized ice cubes

How to make it

So easy! Put all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately. For meal prep, pour the smoothie into two regular-size mason jars and seal with the lids.

    Very filling! We used peanut butter instead of almond butter. We also doubled the hemp hearts because we didn’t have chia seeds. And we skipped the date because we didn’t have that too. Really tasty and filling!
