Vegan Apple Pie Smoothie

5

by: theblendergirl






Here is my vegan gluten-free “apple pie in a glass”. This apple pie smoothie is absolutely fantastic! This blend captures everything I love about a great piece of apple pie – the creamy, buttery apples with just a hint of sweetness, and cinnamon. Who doesn’t love a hot slice of steaming apple pie on a cold Winter’s night? But just like my “pumpkin pie in a glass”, this smoothie satisfies the need for a slice of apple pie, without having to bake. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t like sugary, sickly-sweet, syrupy apple pies. I have always thought it detracted from the natural beauty and sweetness of the apple. So, in the spirit of replicating my perfect bite of apple pie, I have held back on the sweetener in order to let these apples shine. The raw cashew milk adds that much needed hint of a nutty pastry flavour, and the cinnamon and vanilla perfect the blend. I was craving a piece of apple pie a few months ago, and not wanting to pull out my baking plates, I remembered my pumpkin pie smoothie, and looked to my blender (my Vitamix) for inspiration. This apple pie smoothie bore some pretty sweet fruit. I quickly stewed some apples in a saucepan for 5 minutes with some filtered water. But you could easily throw in some unsweetened organic applesauce.

preparation

f8f6c15f5ab6f13917604c9f6cdb8fd5a68e8396.jpg 1.  Throw everything in your blender (I like to use a Vitamix) and purée until smooth and creamy.

2.  Add in some more sweetener to taste, and if you want a creamier smoothie, put in some non-GM lecithin. But I don’t think it needs it. ENJOY!
