Apple-Cinnamon Protein Smoothie
When Chobani’s new apple-cinnamon yogurt came out a while back, I thought it would be tasty in a smoothie. This is a fun diversion from my typical go-to smoothie flavors, and I have a favorite way to turn it into a smoothie that really reminds me of fall: When I make baked apples, I blend a leftover half along with some of the juices into the smoothie. Sort of like a cool, creamy version of apple crisp!
I’m thinking I’ll add a tablespoon or two of almond or peanut butter for the next round!
If you happen to make baked apples, consider adding a leftover half along with some of the juices to really make the apple flavor shine. Almond or peanut butter would be an equally tasty addition!
- 3/4 -1 cup almond milk, depending on how thick you like your smoothie (or milk of choice)
