Apple Cinnamon Smoothie

I believe Apple Cinnamon is one of the best combinations in the food world, so why not use it for a smoothie?

Some examples include apple pie, apple cinnamon muffins, and apple cinnamon buns.

Anyway, let’s cut to the chase and make this apple cinnamon smoothie!

Apple Cinnamon Smoothie

Tips and Tricks

Here’s the deal:

If you’re using a powerful blender, you don’t need to chop your apple (other than the fact that you have to remove the seeds).

Anyway, if you want a chilly drink go for frozen fruits, as ice will undoubtedly dilute the flavor. Especially during hot summer days? You can never go wrong with a cold smoothie.

Needless to say, you can use ice if you don’t have frozen fruits available. Just don’t use too much to preserve the apple cinnamon smoothie flavor.

Now:

The fruits in the apple cinnamon smoothie are already sweet, so there’s no need to add extra sweeteners. However, if you want to indulge in a sweet dessert-type smoothie, you can use maple syrup or pitted dates.

Warning: Weaker blenders can’t blend dates.

Substitutions and Add-ons

The easiest to substitute is milk, especially if you’re lactose intolerant. You can use coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, or whatever dairy-free option you have available.

In fact, using coconut water will add a “tropical” personality to the smoothie.

Also, you can add chia seeds for more protein and make it even creamier.

Here’s more:

If you want a green smoothie for a healthier lifestyle, you can substitute the banana for an avocado. (Just to augment the green color.)

And of course, vegetables…

My favorite choice for the greens is spinach. Unlike kale, it doesn’t overpower the overall deliciousness of apple cinnamon smoothie.

Better yet?

Add granola on top and a drizzle of nut butter of your choice to make it more appetizing.
