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!


Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (or Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Cashewmilk)
1 Serving vanilla whey protein (I'm currently obsessed with SFH 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 milk, protein, and spices to your blender and blend. Next, slowly add the frozen apple slices until well blended and smooth. It should be thick.

Options:
If you do not tolerate dairy, try replacing the whey protein with 3 Tablespoons collagen powder and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (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...




Let me know if you try it!
