Applesauce Smoothie

applesmoothie

Ingredients:

2 medium apples – cored, chopped, peeled (some people like this skin on but I find it’s a hassle getting the skin to mix properly.
1/4 c. unsweetended applesauce
1/2 c. skim milk
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. ice

1 scoop protein powder if this is a meal replacement.

Directions:

Mix apples, milk, and cinnamon (and powder if using). Pay special attention for lumps if you decided not to peel.
Add applesauce and ice.
Blend on whip setting until smooth.

Optional: Note that you can replace the apples completely with around a 1/2 c. applesauce per apple but note that the calories will go up somewhat.
