Apple Pie Protein Smoothie

YUMMMMMMM…

Everyone is all “PSL yada yada.” What about the other fall favorite?

Apples?!?!?! I remember that when I was a kid my mom would make apple pie and I would help her peel and core the granny smith apples. I think I ate more apples than I actually peeled! My mom is a great baker (hello, check out her Fresh Peach Crumb Pie– vegan) so she knows good pie, I think she would even like this protein smoothie if I could get her to try it!

Beautiful granny smith apples mixed with Vanilla Chai Vega protein, probably one of the best ideas I’ve had in a while. I have been testing out different Vega protein powders for while. When I tried the vanilla chai flavor the first thought that came to my mind was apple pie, all it needed was the apple and a touch more cinnamon and nutmeg. Easy, simple, filling and healthy. I love Vega because it is so filling and loaded with good for you things. Seriously any protein shake that taste this good and packs vegetable servings is A-OK with me.

I love guilt free treats… Especially if they come packed with 15g grams of protein AND granny smith apples.

  1. This looks like heaven! I made apple crisp and pumpkin muffins to get in the fall spirit. I really want to buy vega protein powder because I’ve heard lots of great stuff. Trying to finish up my Sunwarrior first. Happy fall! I’m sure NYC will be looking beautiful when you return.
