Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against pumpkin. Actually I love it. But I found THIS smoothie recipe that puts an apple as the centerpiece and have been waiting for a chance to try it out.
I’ve never made a smoothie using an apple. I usually use berries with banana and sometimes include mango and/or pineapple. Yep, lots of sweetness. I’m a big fan of apples though so I wanted to give this one a try. And I just did (literally, I just finished drinking it!)
One small apple all chopped up
The finished product
My thoughts: At first taste I wasn’t too sure about this one. But it was really just because it was so different from what I’m used to. The apple peel definitely lends a texture to the smoothie and it’s a mild flavor overall, but it was good and I’d definitely have it again. I don’t think I’d do anything different next time except maybe try a different type of apple.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
