Apple Smoothie Recipe


Ingredients:
  • 1½ cups apple cider or apple juice
  • 1 cup low-fat yoghurt (vanilla, plain or apple)
  • ¼ cup almond milk (optional – skip this if you want a thicker smoothie, or use 1t almond-milk powder)
  • 1 medium, ripe banana, sliced (previously frozen is great, but not required)
  • 1t cinnamon
  • ½t vanilla extract
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Brown sugar or sweetener, to taste
  • 2 cups ice (optional; add as necessary)

Directions: Combine all ingredients (except the ice) in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If using sugar or sweetener, make sure it has dissolved and is well incorporated. Pour smoothie into a large glass over ice. You can also blend ice into the smoothie – just remember that this will water it down a bit. You can pour any leftover mix into sturdy cups and freeze for later, as 30 seconds in the microwave brings it back to drinking form. (via cosmopolitan.co.za)
