This is comfort in a glass. If you enjoy warm cinnamon apple oatmeal in the mornings, then you’ll probably like this protein smoothie, which can be a great breakfast or lunch. Or dinner for that matter! You get a burst of sweetness and immediate energy from the apple, while the oats will provide a slow release of energy over several hours. Plus both the apple and oats offer tons of fiber to keep you feeling full and satisfied.
The oats and almond butter are the main source of protein in this smoothie. In total, you’ll have about 10 grams of protein. If you want an extra kick of protein along with healthy fats, add 2 tablespoons of Ojio hemp seeds. This will give you a bump of nutrition and an extra 5 grams of protein without altering the flavor of the smoothie too much. Or if you want a major bump, a scoop Ojio Sport Brown Rice vanilla protein powder will add anywhere from about 15 more grams of protein.
Oh, and make sure you use an organic apple so you can include the peel — the skin of an apple has the densest concentration of nutrients so you definitely want to add it in your smoothie!
