Smoothie Time!

In our house, we have "Smoothie Time".  I've posted about some of our smoothies before.  Today, we perfected the APPLE PIE SMOOTHIE!  We have tried several recipes we've found on-line.  Most had us cooking the apples in butter, etc.  This kind of countered the purpose of having smoothie time, since we have smoothie time to get in a few extra servings of fruits and veggies before dinner.

Here's our super fast Apple Pie Smoothie:
1 cup of almond milk
1 cup - ( I had an individual cup that I had purchased for class trip lunches) of Unsweetened Applesauce - A homemade style works best - we used Trader Joe's brand.
A dash of Cinnamon
A splash of REAL vanilla extract.
3-4 ice cubes

Blend blend blend... it doesn't get super thick, but it does have a nice consistency.

 It definitely tasted like an apple pie, minus the crust!  

(The Smoothie pictured above was another smoothie we made today!)

R's Mango Mixed Berry Smoothie

2 cups of  almond Milk
a BIG handful of frozen mango chunks
about 5 frozen (or fresh) strawberries 
Handful of blueberries - we used fresh

Blend, Blend, Blend, Enjoy!
