Vegan Apple Smoothie

Smoothies are an awesome healthy and super tasty way to start your day. Even more brilliant breakfast option after a night of binge eating or party.

Its a low fat, no sugar, high in fibre, rich in nutrients, filling , super delicious and done in few minutes. Just throw in all the ingredients together in a blender and its done. Its easily adaptable to your taste. If you don’t prefer walnuts or almonds just don’t use them. But it tastes sooo much awesome with them.

Its a great way to feed almonds, walnuts and chia seeds to my kids. Sometimes they freeze it in ice cream moulds and eat it as ice cream . Make and relish this and have a healthy day.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup – Almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon – Chia seeds
  • 5-7 Almonds
  • 2-4 Walnut halves
  • 4-5 Cashewnuts
  • 1 – Apple (red if u like sweet, green Granny Smith for the crisp flavour)
  • 1/2 tsp – Cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp – Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp – Maple syrup (adjust as per your taste)
  • Ie cubes

Method

  1. Dice the apples in small pieces. Add in all the ingredients except milk in a blender.
  2. Add milk little by little and blend all the ingredients together. (Please Note : too much liquid at one go will not give a creamy texture ).
  3. Add the ice cubes , blend once and its done.
  4. Blend well and serve cold. You can garnish with some cinnamon powder and some cranberries if you wish.

Note:

  1. I prefer soaking chia seeds for at least an hour in almond milk so that they bloom and becomes more creamy on blending.
  2. You can dice and freeze apples overnight and use them. Reduces the need for ice cubes.
  3. Add a pinch of nutmeg if you like its taste.
