Apple Pie Smoothie

It’s been a warm autumn here in California, so my favorite way to cool down and recover from a workout is still with a smoothie. With the change in seasons, I love to get creative with my smoothie recipes and put a holiday spin on them. If you read my last post you also know I’m trying to lose (not gain) weight during the holidays and one of the ways I plan to accomplish this is by creating healthy alternatives to my favorite holiday treats. I recently tried a spin on a classic favorite, the Apple Pie, and boy is it delicious! Here is the recipe…

  • 2 large red apples (I used fuji), cored
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I use Designer Protein, if you want to use it too, use my referral link for 20% off your order)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground ginger
  • 1 cup ice

The ultimate, protein packed, guilt-free alternative to a slice of apple pie! Enjoy!
