Green Apple Pie Smoothee Recipe

Last week Kevin and I did a 5 day cleanse. (There will be more information about that in another post later.)  Today I want to share with you a recipe we came up with to help curb some of the cravings and make the week a little more normal.  Because, I'm tellin' ya, I am not a veggie person.

It's a very simple recipe with only five ingredients.

Green Apple Pie Smoothee
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 honey crisp apple
Handful or more baby spinach
2 scoops vanilla Shaklee 180 smoothee mix
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Put in a handful or more baby spinach.  It's really up to you.  A lot of spinach can be added before you actually start to taste it in the finished smoothee.
Add your chopped up honeycrisp apple.  Leave the skin on to get all the fiber and nutrients!
Pour in 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk.
Next, add 2 scoops Shaklee 180 vanilla smoothee mix.
Finally is 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon.  Feel free to add more to taste.
Mix well.
This smoothee recipe has been getting a lot of requests since we first put it together.  Below is a picture of my 6 year old daughter and (almost) 5 year old son enjoying their own smoothee.  Even my 10 year old daughter who doesn't eat green vegetables, is requesting this!  How cool is that?!  My kids are now asking me to give them spinach.  Not a top request from most kids.

We have many other smoothee combinations and recipes we like, but it's nice to have one with a green veggie that tastes like you are cheating the system just a little bit.  Kevin and the kids have actually been joking around about this being 'Shrek in a Blender'.  As long as they drink it, they can call it what they want.

I'd love to hear how what you think of it!

Also, I still have some Free stuff to pass along to several people.  Here's the link to the post with all the information you need -->  Celebrating Great Things

Finally, here's an easy picture for your Pinterest pinning pleasure.  Enjoy!!
