Besides being entirely delicious and simple to make too, this Apple Peanut Butter Smoothie checks off everything you might want in a breakfast.
A healthy smoothie with 2 fruits, peanut butter and a generous splash of oat milk
First, there are two types of fruit — remember the saying, an apple a day keeps the doctor away? With this smoothie, you not only get an apple, but also a banana (whoo a bonus!). Both of these fruits add a bit of sweetness to the smoothie, so there is no need to add any other sweetener.
Second, there is good glob of all-natural peanut butter, which is a great source of protein and vitamin E. Make sure you use an all-natural peanut butter so there’s no added sugar in it. I used my favorite peanut butter by London’s Pip & Nut, and it’s so good that I’ve teamed up with them to give you a chance to win your own jars below! Pip pip horray!
Lastly, there is a generous pour of oat milk in this smoothie recipe. If you don’t have oat milk handy, you can use almond milk, another milk alternative, or regular cow’s milk. But I always reach for the oat milk because it offers more fiber and beta-glutens (which can help control blood cholesterol level) than other milk alternatives. It’s a great choice to use in this quick breakfast.
