Apple Smoothie

Remarkably like apple pie, if apple pie was cold and liquid.

It's starting to get warm enough that I like to have a smoothie for breakfast or as a substantial part of lunch. Since I didn't freeze any fruit last year due to moving, I needed to make a smoothie that doesn't rely on them. I did use my own home-canned applesauce, and thinned it a little to make it more similar to store-bought.


4 servings
15 minutes prep time

Apple Smoothie
1 cup milk or soymilk
2 cups applesauce
2 cups crushed ice or small ice cubes
1 cup apple cider
1/4 cup apple butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put everything in a blender, and blend! Blend! Blend!

Serve over a little more ice, if you like.





Last year at this time I made Farfalle with Chicken & Asparagus in Saffron-Chive Broth.

You know, if you added some vanilla ice cream to this mix, it would be apple pie smoothie a la mode! Sounds like an excellent dessert to me.
