Place the oats into your food processor (or blender) and pulse until it looks like powder. Now add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth (see note 6).
Best served right-away!
Make sure to use red apples to make this smoothie (I used the Ambrosia variety).
Taste the pears first – they should be sweet to achieve the best flavors.
I don’t recommend omitting the ginger. It gives this smoothie its specific taste and without it you will find it bland. You might want to add more ginger that is stated in the recipe.
Rolled oats can be substituted with instant oats.
This recipe yields about 1-quart/1-liter of smoothie. This is about 2 portions (2 cups per person) or 4 portions (1 cup per person). This is not a protein-rich smoothie so it will not keep you full for long. That is why I recommend serving it as a part of your breakfast NOT as the only meal.
Taste the smoothie and add more ginger or juice (if you prefer it thinner).
