Apples and Cream Smoothie

Apples are an amazingly a rich source of flavonoids and polyphenols both of which are strong antioxidants.  Studies have shown that by eating just 2 apples a day can give an antioxidant effect that is equal to taking about 1,500mg of vitamin C.

2 cups vanilla low‐fat ice cream
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon or apple pie spice
1 cup fat free skim or 1% low fat milk
Ground cinnamon (optional)

In a blender container combine low‐fat ice cream, applesauce, and the 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon or apple pie spice. Cover and blend until smooth. Add fat free skim or 1% low fat milk. Cover and blend until just mixed. Pour into glasses. If desired, sprinkle each serving with additional cinnamon. Serve immediately. Makes 4 (8‐ounces) servings.

You can substitute pureed fresh apples for the applesauce for an even healthier alternative.
