Apple Pie Smoothie Recipe

This recipe post is for one of my friends who, after having her tonsils removed, let me make this apple pie smoothie for her and realized she loved it! It’s also a great recipe for hypoglycemics because of the combination of natural sweeteners, healthy fat, carbohydrates, and protein.

Modified from: Harley Pasternack’s Apple Pie Smoothie

 

Ingredients:

  • 5 almonds
  • 3/4 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt (single-serving cup)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 banana, frozen, cut in chunks
  • 1 apple, cut in slices, peel still on it
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • splash of vanilla extract

 

Steps:

  1. Dump everything in the blender.
  2. Blend for 5 minutes (apparently, studies have shown that blending a smoothie for 5 minutes and then consuming it, because of the additional air whipped in, will make you full longer, I haven’t verified this, but whatever).
  3. Optional: It’ll be warm at this point, if you prefer cold, dump a few ice cubes in and blend to chill it or stick it in the refrigerator until cold.
  4. Enjoy!

    Taht sounds really good. Did you mean Greek yogurt? There could be green yogurt (like green tea) so I wanted to double-check.

      Yikes! Thanks for catching that typo Laura! Yes, it’s GREEK yogurt. I had this smoothie over the weekend. So good.

    I, ahem, made this last night, and MAY HAVE mixed some Disarrono into the mix. I know it’s a bad idea, but if I DID do it, it tasted wonderful.
