Blend the Smoothie Base: In a blender, combine the chopped apples, rolled oats, Greek yogurt (or alternative), almond milk, honey (or maple syrup), ground cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg. If you like your smoothie bowl colder and thicker, you can also add a few ice cubes. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Taste and Adjust: Taste the smoothie base and adjust the sweetness or spiciness to your liking. You can add more honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness or more cinnamon for a spicier kick.
Assemble Your Bowl: Pour the smoothie base into a bowl.
Add the Toppings: Sprinkle the granola and chopped nuts generously over the smoothie base. Top it off with some sliced fresh apples for a delightful crunch and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for that extra touch of sweetness.
Serve and Enjoy: Grab a spoon and dig in! Savor the harmonious blend of flavours and textures, from the creamy apple base to the crunchy granola and nuts.
