Tastes like apple pie! That is Apple Pie Smoothie with applesauce, almond milk, cashews, dates, and vanilla.
t’s dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and it’s GREAT.
Anytime you could possibly have that many “-free”s in a recipe, I’m unsure. Nonetheless I will happily drink this anytime. In precise truth, I drank your entire batch. (Uh-huh, no self-control.)
“Apple Pie in a Glass” is what my buddy Tess Masters calls it; the recipe is from her fabulous new cookbook The Blender Woman: 100 Gluten-free, Vegan Recipes.
So, what’s in it that makes it model so good?
Applesauce for the apple style. Almond milk for the underside. Raw cashews for physique and to mimic the model of apple pie crust. Dates for sweetness. Vanilla just because. And ice. It does model like apple pie, nonetheless in a smoothie kind and with out the guilt.
The Blender Woman cookbook is filled with recipes like this one—inventive, healthful, and delicious. Additional than merely smoothies, there are tacos, chiles, soups, salsas, salads and puddings too. All making good use of a blender, and all gluten-free and vegan.
Tess bounced into my kitchen in the end for a pie-making class. She quickly charmed my father who calls her, “the Australian energy of nature”. And that she is! No shock that her e-book is as pleasing, bubbly, and beautiful as she is.
