Apple-Cinnamon & Almond Smoothie
 
Prep time
Total time
 
If you store your about-to-be-too-ripe bananas in the freezer, you can omit the ice cube. Also, you'll really want a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix, to pulverize the skin of the apple. If you don't have one, I'd recommend peeling the apple when you core it.
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  • 1 sweet apple, cored (I like Fuji), skin left on if you've got a powerful blender
  • half of a ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon honey, preferably raw
  • ⅔ – ¾ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze Almond Milk
  • 1 tablespoon creamy roasted almond butter
  • 1 ice cube
  • ½ teaspoon chia seeds
Instructions
  1. Combine the cinnamon, apple, banana, honey, ⅔ cup almond milk, and almond butter in a high-powered blender. Blend, starting on low and moving to high, for 2 minutes, or until all the grit of the apple is smooth.
  2. Add the ice cube and the chia and blend again. Add a little more of the almond milk if you like your smoothie on the milky side. Serve, sprinkled with cinnamon.
