Tweaked Apple Pie Smoothie - even better!
Sunday, February 23, 2014
Ok so I played around with the recipe. Originally I used 24 oz. water now I use 12 oz. and it makes it thicker and more of a liquid apple pie sensation. I prefer it without the ice cubes as well. So play around to get the consistency you like, more or less water or ice cubes.
Do not use less than 1/3 cup dry old fashioned outs because this is what is giving it the thickness and pie like taste. I have made this for breakfast for the past 3 days. Love it! Next I am trying blueberries instead of apple.
Apple Pie Smoothie
3-5 ice cubes
1 large apple quartered
2 small bananas
1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats (Raw do not cook)
1 tsp. cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
splash of vanilla
12 oz. water
***Optional: You can add in:
2 cups of your favorite greens
5 walnuts (or other favorite nut such as raw cashew, almond, brazil)
1 T. hemp seeds
1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
1 Tbsp. chia seeds
Throw into a blender and mix until smooth and creamy.
