All the nutrition of a steaming bowl of oats in this Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Vegan Protein Smoothie, nicely chilled over ice on a hot summer day! Made with Boomer Nutrition Organic Vegan Protein or ENERGY Whey Protein for a non vegan version.
I love incorporating oats in my morning smoothies on days when you need to make sure you are getting the added fiber, B vitamins and extra protein the oats provide. Just 1/3 cup offers 3 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber plus is a good source of Vitamin B6, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese and Selenium. Add 1 tsp of chia seeds for another 2 grams of fiber, a bonus in a protein smoothie as most do not contain much fiber. Fiber should be a key part of every meal as it aids in digestion and keep you feeling full longer.
This Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Vegan Protein Smoothie is made with our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Vanilla Protein Powder , but it also tastes great using our original Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Vanilla Protein Powder, which, if you are not vegan and are OK with some dairy, offers a creamier version of this Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Vegan Protein Smoothie.
Cinnamon is becoming a favourite in many Boomer Nutrition Protein Smoothies as it not only tastes great, but cinnamon also has these health benefits:
- source of antioxidants (more than garlic or oregano)
- anti-inflammatory properties
- promotes heart health
- lowers blood sugar
- helps fight diabetes
- protects brain function
- may help lower cancer risk
- fights infections & viruses
- protects dental health
And if that isn’t enough, there is also added health benefits from Boomer Nutrition Organic Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder including a dose of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle preservation (an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss).
