Apple Smoothie

Over the weekend it started to feel like Fall. The air was cool, the fog lingered throughout the day keeping the sky gray, and I spent the last few days fighting a stomach bug and sore throat!

Definite indication that the weather is changing.

Whenever I feel flu-like symptoms with nausea and an upset stomach I immediately start taking probiotics.

I buy those little liquid shots of live cultures and every 3 hours drink one up, and for extra good measure I will add more yogurt to my diet.

It makes me feel better every time, so I’m convinced that those cultures are doing a good job fighting the bug that wants to camp in my body.

Determined to feel better quick, I started to experiment with a Fall smoothie using Greek yogurt and my Apple Pie Spice Mix that I just made. I love the way this recipe came together.

This smoothie is filled with good for you ingredients, and tastes like an apple pie indulgence!

Greek yogurt provides about 17 grams of filling protein, and frozen apple slices are the bulk of the drink.

Also, remember that an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

I kept the skin on the apples since there are good nutrients in the skin and my Ninja does an excellent job of pulverizing everything.

I always prefer using frozen fruits instead of adding ice to my smoothies. Frozen fruits adds a thicker and creamier consistency.

It’s going to be an Apple Spice Smoothie week! Join me!!

  6. What a great looking drink. It’s so beautifully presented. I take a probiotic everyday as it’s something the doctor said I should do. I managed to get through the cold and flu season with no illnesses so maybe the probiotic helped xx

    1. I feel SO much better, Norma. Thank you! Yes, freeze your apples. I had a bunch that were getting almost to soft for our munching preference, so I sliced them all up. Perfect for this smoothie recipe!

  7. Interesting tip on taking probiotics on the onset of a cold! I will have to try that out along with this smoothie! Living in Florida we still have the heat so having a cold smoothie is very desirable. Having it taste like Fall sounds really good!
