Apple Pie Smoothie

apple pie smoothie

Tell me, who isn't in love with Pinterest? It is so amazing to just pop over to one site and find everything and anything creative and beautiful. I stumbled upon this recipe for an apple pie smoothie, and I just had to try it.

I love to make smoothies and my favorites are pretty much any kind of berries with mango's. An apple smoothie sounded just so different that I had to try. It actually is pretty good! Its packed with protein and fiber so its really good for you! The consistency is a little creamier than I am used to, but overall not bad. Why don't you try it and tell me what you think?

Apple Pie Smoothie

1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 cup raw apple, peeled and chopped (I used braeburn)
2 tsp walnuts
2 TB ground flax seed 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup cold water
5 large ice cubes

blend all ingredients in blender until smooth :)

  13. This will definitely go in my Smoothie recipe book! I came to your blog from The Peaceful Mom. I gather from the name of your blog that you either currently live or are from the Willamette Valley :) I grew up in Portland so am very familiar with the W Valley. I'm currently in TX but miss the green and trees of the NW...and our healthy lifestyle!
