"This is a British Columbian recipe from Canada. The soil is so rich there, it produces luscious berries and apples. UPDATE: Due to reviews, I have added sugar to the ingredients. Add to taste or don't use-your choice!"
Serving Size: 1 (325 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 2
"This Canadian approves! Thanks for sharing a delicious breakfast recipe. I used 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce, 1 cup of low-fat plain yogurt, and frozen blueberries. I also added 1 tsp cinnamon, and two servings of vanilla hemp protein powder. I omitted the ice cubes, and did not add sugar - it was perfectly sweet for our tastes. Next time I might try adding apple juice instead of milk. This will definitely be made again!"
"As you can tell by recipe reviews I've been on a smoothie/drink kick of late. I've had this one saved and thought I would whip this up for DH as a treat when he got home from work. I used vanilla icecream in place of the yogurt and in fact upped the amount a bit just for him. Also, used 1 oz. of blueberry syrup by Torani. I should say this did take away from the apple taste I was hoping would come thru. My bad:-( DH said too that he couldn't taste the apple. I used 1/2 of a Royal Gala. Opted out of the sugar too as the icecream was enough. He loved it. !~"
"I'm not rating this as I haven't tried it. My copy of this recipe calls for the apples to be soft cooked. Make 1 cup of soft cooked apples by coring 2 apples. Peel only if desired. Chop and place in microwave for about 3 minutes until soft, almost like applesauce. Allow to cool. The servings say 2. Overall this sounds so yummy! I plan to try this during the summer. Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)"
"I have been on a huge smoothie kick lately, and I came across this recipe at a time when I had both an apple and blueberries. It is by far the best smoothie I've tried. I didn't use sugar. I'm guessing if someone needed sugar, they didn't use a green apple or a fuji apple. I used green, and it added TONS of flavor. Thanks, Sharon!"
"A delicious and refreshing breakfast/snack. I did add a little sugar, but not much. I thought the apple provided quite a bit of sweetness. Made for ZWT4."
"This was a tasty breakfast for me this morning and it fit perfectly into my low fat eating plan as I went for fat free milk and yogurt. I didn't need to add sugar because the fruit made it sweet enough for me. Fresh blueberries are amazingly expensive over here at the moment so I used frozen ones and just used a couple less ice cubes and it worked out great. Sometimes I can find dairy based smoothies to be too heavy but this wasn't at all. Made for ZWT4."
"This wasn't sweet enough for me but it was good."
"I made this for brunch using a green apple unpeeled, frozen blueberries and some frozen natural yoghurt & a touch of vanilla essence, left out the ice due to other frozen ingredients being used. Nice & creamy, great colour too. Not as sweet as I thought perhaps due to natural yoghurt being used but will be making this again with vanilla yoghurt, thanks!"
"We loved this one. I was concerned that it would not be sweet enough but it truly was. I used fat free vanilla yogurt and skim milk for a guilt free treat split three ways. Thanks!"
"this was alright... i love smoothies, but i usually make them with bananas. i ended up adding one because it still needed something a little more..."
