What do strawberry smoothie recipes have to do with apples?
Wait and you will see....
Trying to live and eat healthier and all that stuff I had just bought 20 kg (about 45 pounds) of apples about two weeks earlier. The problem is, I'm not a big fan of apples.
But they were selling them straight from the producer. Organic apples at a good price. I remembered the saying that you should eat an apple a day and bought the smallest quantity they sell. That usually is 40 kg (90lb).
No way! How can any normal family of three ever eat that much?? Luckily, my neighbor also wanted less apples, so we shared one big bag.
And now I have hundreds of little apples in my garage waiting to be eaten.
I had some leftover strawberries from the day before, that needed urgent processing (you might not believe the part of the leftover, but it is true!).
First thing that came to my mind was a shake, because I just love them and they're not much work. 5 minutes preparation time max.
As I didn't have enough berries to make a strawberry smoothie recipe without any other fruits, I needed to get creative. And milk was out as well. What to do?
Proudly presenting you my new vegan smoothie recipe with apples and strawberries:
Peel banana and cut into chunks.
Cut apples into pieces. If you want you can peel the apples. I don't do that, because the peel holds most of the vitamins and nutrients (and I'm too lazy). But you have to cut out the core, otherwise the seeds will make your shake taste bitter.
Put everything in a blender. Blend until smooth. If needed you can add sugar, but the banana and apple usually give enough sweetness.
Pour into a long drink glass and enjoy!
