High Protein Apple Pie Smoothie (No Powder!)

High Protein Apple Pie Smoothie (No Powder!)

Apple pie is a favorite dessert when the weather turns cold. Slightly sweet apples mixed with cinnamon, nestled between two flaky, buttery crusts is the perfect way to end a meal with fresh, seasonal fruit.  

Unfortunately, meals seem to be a bit bigger and a bit heavier this time of year and tummies often don’t have enough room after dinner to fit even a small slice of pie. 

Plus, if we’re being honest, we’ve probably already eaten more than our fair share of homemade cookies!

Instead of skipping dessert, or over-indulging in too many sweets, why not have apple pie for breakfast?  This smoothie tastes just like dessert, and as a healthy bonus, it has over 20 grams of protein! 

This high protein apple pie smoothie is from my new eBook, High Protein, No Powder:  Protein Bars and Smoothie Made with Real Food.  High Protein, No Powder. 

My healthy cookbook explains the dangers of processed protein powders, teaches you how to make protein bars and protein smoothies with real food. 

It also offers over 30 delicious recipes to get you started as soon as you get rid of the fake powders.

High Protein, No Powder will be officially released in January, but you can get a sneak preview with this apple pie smoothie recipe.  Now you can indulge in dessert any time of day!
