Smoothies Make the Best Desserts!
Lately I’ve been drinking my desserts. No. Not like that! Though there isn’t anything wrong with that. I’m talking about smoothies. I can’t say enough good things about my Vitamix. It took some convincing that I really needed one, but after posting a query on Facebook, all of the positive responses convinced me. It is so easy now to have a dessert that tastes good and is good for me!
Tips for Healthy Smoothies!
My number one tip for creating healthy smoothies is to stock your freezer! When fruits and vegetables go on sale, stock up! My freezer is packed now with possible smoothie ingredients. I keep all sorts of frozen fruit and bags of frozen spinach, but for this smoothie, all you need are ice cubes to make it cold and frosty.
Some of my favorite fruits to keep in the freezer for smoothies: bananas, mangoes, strawberries, kiwis, blueberries, peaches, raspberries, blackberries and pineapple. I also keep spinach and kale.
Apple Pie Smoothie
The other ingredient that I always keep in my fridge for smoothies is plain yogurt. It was perfect for this smoothie from Vitamix. The recipe calls for vanilla yogurt, but a little splash of vanilla extract makes my plain yogurt vanilla in a snap. I buy plain instead of vanilla so that it can also be used for a substitute for sour cream if I need to. All you need for this smoothie is apples, vanilla yogurt (or plain with vanilla extract), brown sugar, apple pie spice and ice cubes!
