Simple Apple Pie Smoothie

IMG_0884

Smoothies are one of my favorite go-to snacks, especially in the summertime.  They are a quick, easy way to eat something healthy that tastes totally delicious.

By the time we made it back home after the Dirty Girl Mud Run on Saturday, I was hungry and felt dehydrated.  So I grabbed a few ingredients to make a quick, high-protein smoothie.  It turned out to be really tasty!

Apple Pie Smoothie (1 serving)

  • 6-7 ice cubes
  • 1 apple, halved and cored
  • 1 scoop/serving vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 T. chia seeds
  • 1 t. maca powder (optional)
  • cinnamon, to taste (I use 2 t.)
  • dash of ginger
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk

Place all ingredients into a high speed blender, in the order listed.  Blend until smooth!

  • As written, the smoothie is vegan and gluten-free.
  • If you do not have/use protein powder, replace with 1/3 c. non-fat plain greek yogurt, a touch of vanilla extract and a touch of sweetener of choice

Stay Tuned!

Many people ask about some of the ingredients seen in this post (chia seeds, maca powder, protein powder).  I plan on writing about these items in more detail so you can learn about why I include them in my diet and if they might be something you’d like to try.
