Apple Pie Protein Smoothie

Apple Pie Protein Smoothie

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:  This smoothie is thick thanks to the oats, but it’s incredibly creamy thanks to the almond butter and Greek yogurt. The yogurt is also responsible for giving it a serious protein punch, as well as adding a nice hint of sweetness (or tartness if you choose to go the plain yogurt route).

Directions:

    • 1 apple, peeled and cored
    • 1/4 cup raw oats
    • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt*
    • 1 Tbsp. almond butter
    • 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk**
    • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • dash of ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions:

    1. Place all ingredients into any standard blender.
    2. Blend until smooth.

Notes:

    • * You can sub out the yogurt for some vanilla protein powder OR use plain Greek yogurt, but you may have to add a little bit of sweetener.
    • ** Use regular dairy milk to add even more protein.

Prep Time:  5 minutes

Yields:  1 Mug with Attitude serving
