Cran-Apple Smoothie Recipe
Apple picking is one of my favorite fall activities because it’s a great way to gather the family and enjoy the cool crisp air, while harvesting apples at their peak freshness and ripeness! It’s always such an enjoyable activity, but if you’re like me, you may find yourself with more apples than you anticipated. While there are several ways to enjoy this yummy fruit, I'm a big fan of incorporating apples into my smoothies and have been obsessed with this Cran-Apple Smoothie Recipe!
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away and while it's an outdated saying, apples are packed with vitamin C and fiber that can provide a major boost for your immunity. This recipe also includes cranberries, which are an incredible superfood with powerful plant compounds and antioxidants to help combat free radicals and further support your immune system. The two fruits together are the perfect combination of sweet and tangy, for a delicious snack or meal!
What You Need to make this Smoothie
This simple recipe requires just a few ingredients including 310 Organic Unflavored, a small apple, frozen cranberries, frozen cauliflower rice, unsweetened almond milk, chia seeds, and ice (optional). I recommend using a sweeter type of apple such as Fuji or Gala apples to help balance the tartness of the cranberries, but if you want an extra-tangy smoothie, try using a Granny Smith apple!
310 Organic Unflavored
Before I started using 310 Organic Unflavored in my shakes, regular fruit smoothies would only keep me full for a short time before I found myself getting hungry again. By adding a scoop of this well-balanced meal replacement shake, I'm able to add more essential nutrients into my drink to help keep me full, while keeping the natural fruity taste. I recommend this shake to anyone and everyone because not only is it extremely versatile, but possesses several incredible qualities as well! Just take a look…
- 15g of plant-based proteins from a blend of pumpkin, brown rice, and pea
- 5g of dietary fiber per serving
- Formulated with vegan & organic ingredients
- Free from sugar, soy, dairy, gluten, and GMOs to fit a variety of different lifestyles
Ways to “Shake Up” this Smoothie
There are countless ways that you can make this smoothie, and it just depends on what you're in the mood for! Some days, I like a more “slushee” consistency, and other days I prefer a thick smoothie texture. To help spark some creativity and inspiration, I’ve included a few of my favorite alternative ingredients for this smoothie, below!
- Omit frozen cauliflower rice
- Coconut water or coconut milk instead of almond milk
- Add Greek yogurt or 310 Collagen for more protein
- Hemp or flax seed instead of chia seeds
- Add cinnamon or fresh ginger for a spiced flavor
