What's your favorite kind of pie? Mine is a toss up between peach and apple. Or maybe pumpkin or rhubarb. Mmm, pie...
Since going Paleo I've been working on converting some of my decadent family recipes to being more Paleo friendly. I haven't yet perfected a Paleo apple pie recipe, but this recipe fills that void for me until I do.
Latley I'm pretty obsessed with this smoothie; it tastes just like a piece of apple pie with a scoop of ice cream on top. Really. Try it!
Apple Pie a la Mode Protein Smoothie Recipe
Ingredients:1/2 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze or Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Cashewmilk
1 Serving vanilla whey protein (I'm currently obsessed withSFH Vanilla)
1 Cup frozen apple slices (I find frozen at my grocery store, you can also peel, slice, and freeze your own)
1/2 teaspoon Saigon Cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
Directions:Add the almond or cashewmilk, protein, and spices to your blender and blend. Next, slowly add the frozen apple slices until well blended and smooth. It should be thick. If your blender won't blend it all, add a bit more cashewmilk.
Options:If you do not tolerate dairy, try replacing the whey protein with 3 Tablespoons collagen powder and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (also makes this paleo-friendly) OR to make it vegan use Vanilla Vega One (though the consistency will be slightly different, not as ice-creamy).
OK, just writing this made me hungry. I'm off to make myself one...
