Apple Pie Smoothie

This must be one of the best smoothies ever created ! I’d bought an apple pie flavour raw bar, and although it was really nice I was a bit disappointed as it seemed to taste more of apple and less of pie. Since eating GF I miss the taste of pastry and so I thought I’d have a go at recreating the taste in  a healthy smoothie. It took me a few weeks to get it right, and before posting this I tested a batch on a group of friends who all agreed not only that it is delicious, but also that it actually does taste like pie !  The flour and almond butter combined seem to be what gives it a hit of pastry like taste. It will still taste great without these two ingredients but it wont taste  apple pie.   Have a go and let me know how you get on,  I’d love to hear what you think 🙂

 

3 apples

400 mls horchata (http://www.thetigernutcompany.co.uk/best-ever-creamy-horchata-recipe/)

4 tbsp Tiger Nut Flour (or Milled)

1 generous tsp almond butter (I used this one from Meridian http://www.meridianfoods.co.uk/Products/Speciality-Nut-Butters/Organic/Almond-Butter-Smooth-100)

large pinch cinnamon

large pinch nutmeg (fresh grated is always best)

1 banana

Juice two of the apples. Then place juice and horchata in a blender, cut up and add the remaining apple and blend. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

I served mine topped with Tiger Nut Flour,  a slice of apple and a sprinkle of chia seeds  – enjoy !
