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.
