Apple Pie Green Smoothie

I’m baaaaaack!!! I feel terrible when I leave my blog unattended for several days, but I’ve got a good reason. I finished my 200 hour yoga teacher training! Ahhh… that feels good to say.

IMG_7006I’ll do a full recap as soon as my brain starts working properly. Right now I’m sleep deprived, physically exhausted, and I’m coming down from an emotional roller coaster I’ve been riding for the last 5 days. Give me a minute before I start re-living it.

So how about another smoothie recipe?

DSC_9457As you can see, I’ve got a pattern going here. Banana Bread, Apple Pie…I’m obviously craving dessert! But when am I not craving dessert? That’s the real question.

DSC_9482I made this smoothie almost every morning before teacher training. I would usually eat around 7:30 or 8 a.m., and then we wouldn’t break for lunch until 1 or 1:30 p.m. Thankfully, the addition of the oats kept me full for hours!

DSC_9459Cast of Characters:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 large handful of greens
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ½ sweet apple (Fuji, Gala, etc.) or ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. vanilla

Add all ingredients to a high speed blender. Once everything is blended, turn that thing on high! The oats and raw apple need to be blended into oblivion for a smooth texture.

DSC_9471If needed, add a few ice cubes to cool it down.

Notes: I have used raw apple and unsweetened apple sauce in this recipe and both have turned out great. I usually don’t have sweet apples laying around (I’m more of a tart apple kind of girl), BUT I do always keep individual servings of apple sauce in the pantry for baking. The apple sauce was a perfect addition to this smoothie. Also, If you don’t have a high speed blender (Vitamix, Blendtec, etc.), the apple sauce will give you a much smoother texture.

Happy Blending, Y’all!
