Smoothie Saturday #3 - Cinnamon Apple Cider

Smoothie Saturday #3 - Cinnamon Apple Cider
A while ago I bought - The "NutriBullet".  Since then I have been creating many smoothie creations.

Today is the third "Smoothie Saturday" where I will share one of my smoothie experimentation.
In this recipe I included cinnamon.
Cinnamon - is good for your blood sugar, aids in lowering cholesterol, helps relieve indigestion and colds.  (again - I'm not a doctor - please see my "disclaimer" at the bottom of this post).
I used unpasteurized Apple Cider in the feature Smoothie recipe below - I know that there is a controversy over unpasteurized Cider but in my opinion the pasteurized kind tastes no different than apple juice.  I trust the farm where I buy my cider - they are very clean.  However, please use your own discretion with this ingredient (cider).

1/2 apple (washed & cored - I leave the skin on)
1 small pear (washed, cored & peeled)
1/2 banana (peeled)
1 tablespoon walnuts
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Begin with the smaller "NutriBullet" container and use the "nut & seed" blade to blend & chop the walnuts & flax seeds. Now place the remaining ingredients (including the processed seeds & nuts from the first step) into the larger "NutriBullet" container and use the "smoothie" blade. Blend for about 30 seconds.

IMPORTANT: All of my smoothie recipes on this blog are measured for the "NutriBullet" and are a single serving - if you have a different kind of blender that has a larger capacity then you may increase the amount of ingredients according to your desired smoothie needs. The ingredients in this recipe measure exactly up to the max line of the NutriBullet.

  1. That looks delicious - and I have all the ingredients already, except for the pear. I'm not likely to find that now, but the rest will be great!

  2. Mmmm... Apple cider sounds lovely as our temperatures cool down! I love the sound of this recipe! Thank you! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  3. Love the mottled banana pic, lol! So homey and common. They make the best smoothies, don't they?

  4. That definitely gets the mouth watering and the "whistle" wetting! Thanks for the idea - have just got back from Calvados country, but was unable to really appreciate the local brands: it darn well rained all the time! Except when we were just about to leave: then the sun came out and rubbed in what we had been missing! Still, there's always next year!

  5. Yummer!! That looks so delicious. I wish I could drink the picture. :-)

  6. I'm not familiar with the NutriBullet but I will have to look for it as the smoothies that you make with it look very tasty.

  7. Yummy! Care to share on my Healthy Tuesday post? :)

  8. I like the idea of apples in smoothies. Sounds perfect for fall.

  9. I don't have any pears right now, but I got everything else and think I'm going to give this a try! Thanks for sharing at Sweet Saturday!


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
