Apple Cinnamon Smoothie with Toasted Walnuts

Apple Cinnamon Smoothie with Toasted Walnuts | Roxy's Kitchen

You know what they say “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” so if you’re struggling to eat enough raw apples, start drinking them! This Apple Cinnamon Smoothie with Toasted Walnuts is perfect for a quick and healthy breakfast, an afternoon snack or a dessert.  It’s super rich in vitamins and minerals and is packed with fiber from the apple, protein from the yogurt and omega 3 fatty acids from the walnuts. Usually fruit is all you need to sweeten your smoothies but I like adding a touch of pure maple syrup for extra sweetness and flavour (shhhh!). 

Time:  5 min, Prep: 5 min.
Servings: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 large honey crisp or gala apple, sliced and frozen
  • 2 Tbsp ground toasted walnuts
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 cup (240 g) vanilla Greek yogurt

I prefer freezing the fruits rather than adding ice cubes, the smoothies are tastier and more filling this way! To make the toasted walnuts preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C), arrange the walnuts on a cookie sheet in a single layer and bake for 8 minutes.

 

Directions:

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, pulsing as needed.  You might need to scrape down the sides of the blender a few times.

    This sounds fab, Roxy! I love eating apples and cinnamon in my morning oatmeal, but drinking it like this sounds perhaps even better especially in the warmer months. Thanks for sharing. Great photos! Shared.
