This cinnamon smoothie with apple has so much more to offer than just aiding weight loss.

It is easy to make, and on top of that, it’s packed with vital nutrients.

Here’s an overview of the benefits of this smoothie:

  1. Nutrient-Dense, Low Calorie: This smoothie is packed with essential nutrients while being relatively low in calories, making it an excellent choice for those looking to lose weight without compromising on nutritional intake.
  2. High in Fiber: Both apples and bananas are rich in dietary fiber, which promotes satiety. Feeling full longer can help prevent overeating and snack cravings, aiding in weight loss.
  3. Naturally Sweetened: The fruits provide natural sweetness, reducing the need for added sugars.
  4. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Ginger and cinnamon are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can support weight loss by improving digestion and boosting metabolism.
  5. Heart-Healthy Fats: Flaxseeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health. 
  6. Dairy-Free and Vegan: Using oat milk makes this smoothie dairy-free and vegan.
  7. Boosts Metabolism: The ingredients like ginger and cinnamon are known to have thermogenic properties, meaning they can help increase metabolic rate, potentially aiding in weight loss.
  8. Versatile and Easy to Make: This smoothie is simple to prepare and can be easily customized to suit individual tastes or dietary needs, making it a versatile option for a quick breakfast or a nutritious snack.

Optional Smoothie Customizations & Recipe Notes

Here is a list of customizations you can make to this apple smoothie should you want to:

  • No Banana: If you don’t like bananas, you can use frozen mango instead.
  • The Base: You can use any plant milk you like, it doesn’t have to be oat milk. Just make sure you use unsweetened plant milk.
  • More Spice: You can add a touch of ground nutmeg too, for extra flavor.
  • The Seeds: Instead of flaxseeds, you can use chia seeds, oats, or nut butter.
  • The Apple: Any type of apple can be used in this recipe, including green apple. I personally love using sweeter red apples for this recipe though.

Recipe FAQs:

Should I Peel The Apple For This Smoothie?

No, you don't have to peel the apple. Keeping the skin on provides extra fiber and nutrients. Just make sure to wash it thoroughly before use.

Can I Use Fresh Bananas Instead Of Frozen Ones?

Yes, you can use fresh bananas, but frozen bananas give the smoothie a creamier texture and a cooler taste without the need for ice.

How Can I Make This Smoothie Sweeter Without Adding Sugar?

If you find the smoothie isn't sweet enough, you can add a little honey, maple syrup, or another ripe banana to naturally increase the sweetness.
