This smoothie was the perfect drink to make for fall!
Last Sunday I went to the farmers market in Highlands Ranch. I try to go every week and get fresh vegetables. My favorite things to get there are tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini. Last week one of the vendors was selling apples. They looked amazing so I bought a few to try out. I’m so glad I bought some! They were crisp and juicy. Along with snacking on them I also baked some cinnamon apple bars and made this delicious Apple Cinnamon Smoothie!
I’d never made a smoothie with apples before so I was interested how it would taste. In my Vitamix I combined, skim milk, non fat plain Greek yogurt, an apple, a frozen banana, oats, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some ice. The result was a delicious Apple Cinnamon Smoothie!
If you like the flavor of apple pie then you will love this smoothie. Not only is it low in fat and full of protein, but it’s also filling. It makes the perfect snack or breakfast. I can’t wait to get more apples at the farmers market this weekend and try out more new recipes using them!
