I've been drinking these every day for the past week and I thought I'd share it with everyone. I'm addicted to my immersion blender and I hope you enjoy the latest concoction. It's like a caramel apple without the stick, or the sticky!
- 1 -2 apple, cored and peeled
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon wheat germ
- 1 dash cinnamon
- 2 -3 ice cubes
- Core and peel your apple (s), I use two if the apples are small.
- Cut apple into chunks and add to blender.
- Add remaining ingredients.
- Blend until smooth.
- Serve immediatly.
I followed the recipe exactly as written, but I didn't really think it tasted much like a caramel apple. Adding a lot more cinnamon (close to a tablespoon) and a banana made a decent tasting smoothie, but nothing outstanding. I'll probably try it again with a different type of apple (I used fuji) to see if that helps the flavor.
I have a really good blender (Blendtec) so no problems with the blending part, but wasn't impressed with flavor. (IF you are gonna get a GOOD blender research Blendtec vs. Vitamixer!)
I agree-this smoothie needed a little help to make it great. I had to at least double the ice, add way more cinnamon, some caramel sauce and some peanut butter--but it's still not fabulous. But with a few more tries and a bit more tweaking we just might have a winner here!
