This certainly is a decadent and nutritional bombshell of a smoothie! Why not use your favourite apple and add nuts and seeds you prefer for variety.
A special thanks to Teresa Ulyate from Cupcakes & Couscous for this fantastic recipe.
- 2 apples (250g) peeled, cored and cut into chunks
- ½ cup milk of your choice
- ½ cup plain yoghurt
- 1 tbsp rolled oats
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- small pinch of nutmeg
- small pinch of cloves
- 1 tbsp roughly chopped raw almonds
- 1 tbsp roughly chopped brazil nuts
- 2 tsp pumpkin seeds
- 1-2 tsp of honey, to taste
- 2 tsp chia seeds
1.) Place all of the ingredients except for the chia seeds into a high powered blender. Blend until smooth and combined.
2.) Pour the mixture into two glasses. Sprinkle a teaspoon of chia seeds over each smoothie and serve.
*Note: You can leave the apples unpeeled if you prefer (there is certainly a nutritional beneﬁt to doing so!) but your smoothie may be a bit more textured as a result.
*Replace dairy products with almond, coconut or soy if you are following a dairy-free diet.
