Apple and cinnamon smoothie

I think that this has got to be my favourite one so far. I have started introducing almond milk into my diet, as it is easier on the digestive system and is a brilliant source of nutrients. When I came across this recipe it already had the almond milk as a part of it; for other recipes that don’t use almond milk I’ve just substituted the milk for almond.

As well as this recipe tasting great I love the benefits that you get from apples. They are loaded with anti-oxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, riboflavin and thiamin. So they’re very useful in giving a little boost in energy. I know that some of the medications prescribed for Crohn’s can suppress the immune system, so the extra vitamin C can help us to stay bug-free.

So for this smoothie I use:

  • 1 apple cut into chunks
  • 250 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 scoop of soy protein powder

This all gets put in together and blended all of this until its smooth. Enjoy!
