I originally saw this recipe posted on Trim Healthy Tuesday and wanted to try it right away, but I had just eaten the last apple (bummer). When I restocked the apples, I went right away and printed the recipe. Then I realized it doesn't use apples but applesauce (I gotta learn to read). I didn't have any of that either. It looked like I was not going to be able to try this recipe for a month. Good grief (and I had just gotten myself all excited about trying it).
I decided to try and make it the way I had originally thought the recipe said with a few tweaks. I loved it!
So if you have applesauce and you want to make it that way go to Sheri Graham's site and check out the original recipe. If you have apples and you want to make a smoothie using them, use the recipe below.
This is Sheri's original picture using the apple sauce version.
Apple Pie Smoothie - E
1/2 cup of Almond Milk
1 Tbsp of Cinnamon
1 Tbsp of Vanilla
sweetener, to taste
(I used SJC)
1-2 cups of Ice
1 Scoop of Protein Powder
Blend cored and quartered apple to smaller pieces.
It doesn't have to be perfect, the rest of the blending later will make it smaller.
Add almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and sweetener.
Add desired amount of ice. Blend. Again it doesn't have to be perfect,
it will blend better when you add the protein powder.
Add protein powder. Blend until it reaches the consistency you want.
If you use the full 2 cups of ice, this smoothie will be HUGE. Like, big enough for two.
The next time I make this I'm going to try to only use 3/4 of the recipe, except for the protein powder.
