Apple Pie Blizzard

No matter what kind of a smoothie I make, I usually add bananas.  So even though this is called Apple Pie Blizzard, it has more bananas than apples, which is fine by me!  This is such a sweet blizzard, naturally sweetened of course, that is perfect post workout or for a filling breakfast.  All the flavors in this blizzard work together so well!

This recipe is adapted from here.  I changed a few things around based on the amount I wanted and the ingredients I had on hand.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 apple
  • 3 dates
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • handful of spinach
  • cinnamon
  • hemp seeds (for topping)

Directions:

  1. Combine all  ingredients except the hemp seeds in a high-speed blender.
  2. Pour into a bowl and top with hemp seeds and extra cinnamon.  You can also chop the other half of the apple and add that to the blizzard if desired.

This recipe is pretty much a smoothie only a lot thicker.  In fact, it is kind of like banana ice cream with an apple and a few other flavorings.  If you would prefer to make this a smoothie, you can add more liquid.

I didn’t even think of taking a picture of this but will in the future 🙂
