Today we have a splendid apple smoothie recipe jam-packed with heart-healthy goodness for you. "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" - this age-old phrase speaks volumes to the health benefits associated with the consumption of apples.
Eating apples can help to promote weight loss, heart health, brain health and is also beneficial for people with diabetes and a range of other illnesses. Its high Vitamin C content helps to improve immune health as well so you can see why this is the second most eaten fruit in America, or maybe it's just because it's so yummy.....
Besides from the health benefits, apples are really good sweeteners and mix so well with other fruits. You should try making your smoothies with apples instead of sugars or other sweeteners for a change, your blood sugar level will thank you for it and you will still get that sweet taste you so love. Now before we blend up some smoothies a quick note:
Apple smoothies should be consumed right after blending because if you don't it will end up thickening over time. This is because of the special fibres found in apples. But this isn't really a problem. If your smoothie thickens up on you just add a few ice-cubes, blend again and shake well. :-)
Add your banana, grapes, apples,strawberries, stevia, water and ice into your blender and blend at high speed until smooth.
Simple add ingredients to blender and blend at medium speed until you have the desired consistency. This one should be pretty creamy!!! Hmmm yum, yum.
Add the water to your blender followed by the fruits and finally, the leafy greens then blend on high speed until you have your desired consistency.
Just as before, we will add the liquids to the blender first followed by the fruits and lastly, the leafy greens. Blend on high speed until you achieve the desired consistency.
Just add the water to the blender, followed by your fruits then the spinach. Blend on high speed until creamy.
Apples by themselves are extremely good for you but when you combine them with avocados you really take it to the next level. Here you have a creamy heart healthy apple smoothie recipe.
By the way, what kind of apples are you using? I'm using red Jamaican apples. They are really sweet and juicy.
