Now for that super refreshing smoothie!
Apple Pie Green Smoothie
This smoothie is surprisingly reminiscent of apple pie. It is really delicious and I think you’ll find it one of your fast favorites. The fiber from the apples also keeps your stomach full for a long time, so this is a favorite smoothie of mine to take out and about when I’m running errands all morning and need something to tide me over until I get home.
(Recipe from The Abundance Diet, © 2015 by Somer McCowan. Used by permission from Vegan Heritage Press LLC.)
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups packed organic baby spinach
- 1 medium banana
- 2 small apples, cored and quartered
- 1 tablespoon organic apple butter or 1 date, pitted and snipped into small pieces
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups ice cubes
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed, chia seed, or hemp seed (optional)
- Liquid stevia, to taste (optional)
In a blender, combine the water, spinach, banana, apples, apple butter, cinnamon, ice, and flaxseed, if using. Blend the mixture until completely smooth, creamy, and well combined, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the liquid stevia, if using, and pulse to incorporate.
Makes 1 serving (about 1 quart)
