Shake or Smoothie? I don’t know what the difference is and if anyone is willing to shed some light on it for me, please do. I really really love my chocolate breakfast shake but I started switching it up with this berry version here and there. I love eating oatmeal in the morning so incorporating it into a breakfast smoothie is a no brainer for me. I was surprised how well berry and oatmeal taste together.
I felt a little experimental today after seeing a friends post about a ‘Vegan Apple Pie Shake’. Now, I am not vegan and I don’t think I ever will be, I just love all sorts of food way too much. Life without my mom’s pozole is just not worth living.
Anyway, before my triumph over the fruit flies last week, I had cut up and frozen all of my gala apples. I was planning on using them in my smoothies anyway so it wasn’t a big deal. Hearing about the ‘vegan apple pie shake’ got me searching for recipes. Oddly, all I found were two extremes: super healthy versions and super unhealthy versions (you know, the ones that involve ice cream and an actual piece of apple pie). These days, I’m trying to help my body recover from bringing a child into this world, so the latter isn’t really an option for me. That being said, I decided to come up with my own recipe and it’s definitely on the healthier side but I’ll let you decide.
