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!
Wonderful... I think. I made this but it killed my stick blender half way though. So I ended up throwing it into my manual food processor to try and finish it off. It left little clumps. The flavour was wonderful though. I am looking into getting a REAL blender and then I will make this again!
This is GREAT! My daughter just had her jaw wired shut and it has been sooooo hard finding things for her to drink/eat that aren't bland or baby food. Wonderful, and it tastes just like Apple Crisp!
