Apple Cinnamon Protein Smoothie


Perfect afternoon pick me up! I’ve been playing around with date caramel a lot lately and happened to have some homemade apple purée in my fridge so thought I’d whip up a caramel apple protein smoothie!

You will need:

1/2 Apple or 2 tbsp apple purée

2 tsp date caramel

1 cup non-dairy milk of choice

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Pure Form Fitness protein powder)

1 heaped tsp cashew butter

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 cup ice

For the date caramel – take 10 – 12 medjool dates, 2 tbsp almond or cashew butter, a dash of water and blitz in a blender until smooth.

Whiz it all together in a blender, and then top with little pieces of apple and a dusting of cinnamon!

If you’re worried about the kale and spinach – don’t be – you can’t really taste them. They just give the smoothie a lovely freshness and of course are packed full of fab nutrients.

I made up a batch of smoothie to last a couple of days so this will serve 2 – 4.

You will need:

3 bananas

2 cups of Almond/Soya milk

4 Tbsp Vanilla protein powder (I use About time vegan protein powder)

generous handful of Spinach

generous handful of Kale

handful raw Cashews

1 Tbsp Cashew butter (just to add a little extra creaminess but you could just add more cashews)

1 cup Ice

Optional – a drizzle of coconut syrup if you need it

Blend in a high speed blender and serve!
