Why I like to add oats to my smoothie:
Oatmeal makes the smoothie wholesome and nourishing. It thickens the smoothie along with providing the required nutrition.
Raw oats vs cooked oats
Instead of raw oats I prefer adding cooked oats in my smoothie to make it easily digestible. Also, the tastes differ a bit and satisfies my taste buds immensely.

Ingredients for Oatmeal Creme Pie Smoothie
Old fashioned oatmeal – its high in fiber and keeps you fuller. Even though it takes a bit extra time than the instant one this old-fashioned oatmeal tastes much better. It also thickens the smoothie a bit and makes it creamier.
Vanilla almond milk – its plant based and low in calories. I personally find it lighter in consistency. I used vanilla for the extra flavor in the smoothie which makes it absolutely delectable.
Dates – I used it as a healthier sweetener. Also dates give this smoothie a thicker texture and a subtle caramel taste.
Raw cashew nuts – this adds little protein and other nutrients to the smoothie. Cashew nuts also provide the creaminess of vegan frosting to this smoothie which tastes amazing.
Cinnamon powder – it has many health benefits along with being a taste enhancer.
Hemp seeds – this adds protein and fiber to the smoothie. It’s a superfood so it makes this recipe completely nutritious.
Pure maple syrup – even though its optional but a little addition enhances the flavor of this smoothie to a great extent. However, 100% pure maple syrup is high in antioxidant. In small proportion it is good for the body.
How to make Oatmeal Creme Pie Smoothie
In the first step, I cooked oats in water and salt.
Once cooled, I blended all the ingredients in the blender including the cooked oatmeal.
Lastly, poured it in the serving glass and served immediately.
- Cook oatmeal until all water is absorbed stirring occasionally.
- Use a high-speed blender so the dates are thoroughly blended. This will help the flavors to come out in this smoothie excellently.
- Make sure to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk. However, if using plain unsweetened almond milk – double the measurement of vanilla extract than mentioned in the recipe.
- To quickly soften the raw cashew nuts soak them in hot water for 5 minutes.
- This smoothie can be made a night before and refrigerated in the glass container. It might thicken a bit but will still taste the same and creamier.
- Tastes best when served immediately.
- Any plant-based milk may be used in this recipe except coconut milk. Just make sure to adjust the vanilla extract and sweetener.
