Baked Apple Smoothie
Print

Recipe type: Beverage, Smoothie
Author: My Little Celebration
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 10 mins
Serves: 1
A healthy, satisfying smoothie fit for fall with baked apples, cinnamon and oats.

Ingredients
1/4 cup low-fat plain OR vanilla yogurt (your preference)
1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 large apple, peeled, cored and sliced (I used granny smith)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup ice
1/3 cup water
Large handful spinach (optional)
Stevia or honey to taste (I used about 1/4 packet of stevia)


Instructions
Start by sauteeing your apple in a skillet over medium heat until soft (about 5 minutes). Stir frequently – a little butter or non-stick spray is optional but not necessary.
Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of cinnamon on halfway through and stir to coat.
Set apples aside and let cool to about room temperature.
Add yogurt, cottage cheese, apple slices, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ice, water, spinach (optional) and sweetener (optional but recommended) and blend until smooth.
Taste and adjust flavor accordingly. (I like mine to keep a good balance of tart and sweet, but make it sweeter if you wish.)
Serve immediately. Top with an extra slice of baked apple, granola or oats if desired.

Notes

You could also leave your apple raw though it will take on a different flavor. still tasty no doubt, but different.If you prefer a thicker smoothie, add more ice. If you prefer it thinner, add more water or throw your apples in while they’re still warm.
