12 May Breakfast Smoothie: Layered Apple Pie
In honor of #NationalApplePieDay I’ve created this delicious Layered Apple Pie Breakfast Smoothie suitable for both my Guided Gut Healing and Lean and Clean Programs!
My top tip is to make a double batch of the stewed apple mixture, and serve it with some coconut or almond yoghurt and a scoop of collagen for a quick breakfast later in the week…
For the stewed apple (makes 2 servings):
- 1 medium apples
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Wash the apples and chop into small squares, and simmer in a small amount of water until soft (approx. 5 minutes) Drain, then mash and mix together with the cinnamon and coconut oil. Cool slightly before using in the smoothie.
For the vanilla smoothie
- 20g vanilla collagen or plant based protein powder
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon chia seed
- 1/2 zucchini, chopped
- 1 cup almond milk
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Layer the smoothie in a glass by adding the stewed apples, pour on the vanilla smoothie, then topped with toasted mixed nuts.
