An Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl a day, keeps the doctor away?
Went grocery shopping the other day and bought a bunch of apples in the “Manager’s Special” section of the produce aisle. Most of the time there is perfectly good fruit and veggies, maybe just a little bruised up, but still edible! I love getting a deal and I hate to see food go to waste. It’s sad how some people will throw away perfectly good food just because of a few imperfections. I also snagged some organic greens for $0.99. These are the kind of things that make my day! Anyway, when I got home I chopped up a few of the bruised apples and froze them to make this apple pie smoothie bowl. I also happened to buy maca root powder, which gives this recipe a nutty flavor without the added fat! I love when recipes come together so smoothly.
Add the following ingredients to high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
3/4-1 cup oat milk
1/2 large white sweet potato (baked and frozen)
1 frozen medium apple (I used McIntosh)
2 tbsp oats
3 tsp maca powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Topped with sliced apple and sprinkled with hemp seeds, quinoa flakes and cinnamon.
*I found the apples, oats, and sweet potato provided enough natural sweetness for the recipe, but if you prefer sweeter, you can add a few dates, maple syrup, or sweetener of choice!
