Apple Pie Smoothie

It’s the 4th of July so that means apple pie!

But it is too hot to bake and have your oven on…unless we are making a smoothie:

So this recipe I found on pinterest, but originally comes from The Lemon Bowl. I did change it a bit, but not too much.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Apple- Peeled, Cored, and Quartered
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Cup of Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 Cup of Oats
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 1/8 Teaspoon of Ground Cloves

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Pour into a glass and serve.

Thoughts After Reading:

Make sure you peel the apples. The recipe doesn’t tell you to peel it, so I didn’t. But of you do not peel them, the smoothie does not work.

It was very good, I would definitely make it again.

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Bark

So I love yogurt and when I saw this recipe I thought it would be interesting to try out. I found it on pinterest and it comes from Hello, Wonderful.

Plus strawberries are a Valentine’s Day staple, so I thought it would be a cute one to do before the holiday.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups of Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • Dried Strawberries (I couldn’t find any so I used Dried Cran-Strawberries)

Directions:

  1. Line a flat pan with sides with parchment paper and spread evenly with yogurt, making sure it is not too thin (about 3/8 of an inch thick).
  2. Sprinkle with dried fruit.
  3. Freeze for a few hours until completely frozen.
  4. Remove frozen yogurt from pan and peel off parchment paper.
  5. Break into pieces.

Thoughts After Cooking:

It wasn’t that good. The fruit kept popping off the yogurt and it was so hard it made my teeth hurt.

When it did soften it kind of melted everywhere.

Ugh!

Not something I would repeat.

  1. Blend all together in blender.

Thoughts after Cooking:

I thought it was really good. It didn’t make me think of cinnamon rolls, but it was good.

Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

Yummmm! Smoothies! I love drinking smoothies, especially in summertime. Summer is hot and I’m so busy with Summer Reading at the library it is great to make one the night before and drink it on the drive over.

When I saw that it was a blueberry muffin smoothie I was very intrigued. Would it really taste like it?

I found this recipe on pinterest and it comes from Iowa Girl Eats. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Milk
  • 4-6 oz Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
  • 1/2 Cup of Frozen Banana
  • 1/4 Cup of Raw, Uncooked Oats (I used Quakers)
  • 1/2 Cup of Ice Cubes

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Thoughts After Reading:

When I first tried it I thought it tasted good, but not very muffin batter-y. But I put it in my fridge and the next day drank it. The oats had changed after being soaked and it made the smoothie much thicker. I wouldn’t say it tasted like blueberry muffins, but definitely blueberry batter. Kind of like eating raw cookie dough, but in a good blueberry smoothie.
