Apple Pie In A Glass

I don't have a big sweet tooth but boy there is something about apple pie in the Fall that I just cannot resist. And while, yes, I have had cold apple pie for breakfast, I thought maybe there was a way to get the same flavors in a slightly healthier way.

Enter this Apple Pie Smoothie.

I was lucky enough to have a second appearance on WTNH's CT Style last Friday and this recipe was a big hit. No wonder, because it really does taste like apple pie in a glass.


Apple Pie Smoothie
Serves 2

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 ripe banana, chopped
  • 2 apples, cored and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1-2 pinches of ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
Directions
  1. Place all the ingredients into a blender.
  2. Put on the lid and process until smooth, about 30-60 seconds.
Now I totally plan on playing around with ingredients for, yup you guessed it, a pumpkin pie smoothie.
