Warm Apple Pie Smoothie
This Warm Apple Pie Smoothie is going to be your favorite winter breakfast or healthy snack. It is full of apples, warming spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and packed full of protein.
Servings: 1 smoothie
- 2 apples such as gala or Fuji, cored and chopped
- ¾ cup nut-milk such as cashew or almond milk (any plant-based milk will work)
- ½ cup water
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- optional: your favorite protein powder
Boil the water and nut milk such as cashew milk or almond milk (or your favorite plant-based milk) together in a small saucepan. While those are warming, chop and core the apples and place them in a blender.
Next, add in the ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and protein powder. The protein powder is optional, but I don't recommend skipping it. Lastly, pour in the nut milk and water. Pour a little less in for a thicker smoothie. Blend for about 1 minute or until smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass, top with additional sliced apples and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. Add a straw and enjoy.
