This smoothie tastes just like an apple pie – it’s such a refreshing smoothie and great way to start the day. It has a lovely creamy consistency and is packed with fibre and healthy fats.

I’ve used golden flaxseed meal in this recipe but regular flaxseed meal is fine to usethe smoothie will be a little darker if you do. Flaxseed is very low in carbohydratesmaking it ideal for people who limit their intake of carbsand rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Serves: 1 | Prep Time: 5 min | Cooking Time: N/A

Ingredients

  • 1 med–lge apple, core removed and roughly chopped
  • 1 Medjool date, pitted
  • 250 ml coconut milk, from carton (if using canned milk water down)
  • 2 Tbsp (fine ground) golden flaxseed meal
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter/spread
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1/2 tsp (organic) vanilla extract
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Directions

Add all the above ingredients into a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Pour into a glass and sprinkle with a little cinnamon.

Allow the smoothie to sit for a couple of minutes before consuming; the flaxseed meal will soak in the liquid and the smoothie will become quite thick.
