Apple smoothie recipe with step by step pics. Delicious and healthy smoothie made with apples, coconut milk and cinnamon. Gluten-Free and Vegan.
Fruits can be consumed the way they are, but can also be made in smoothies or Milkshakes. at times I make this apple smoothie and thought of sharing the method.
For most fruit based smoothie, I use almond milk or coconut milk. Dairy milk and some fruits are an incompatible combination according to ayurveda and cause bloating, gas and digestion problems.
To make apple smoothie you can also use any vegan milk like non gmo soy milk, almond milk, cashew milk or coconut milk. A dash of cinnamon adds a nice aroma and flavor to the smoothie.
For making smoothie or milkshakes always use the variety of apples that are sweet. Avoid using apples that are tart or sour. When you use sweet apples you can skip adding any sweetener or add less amounts of it.
Apples are one of those fruits that are covered with wax and also have a lot of pesticides on them. I usually buy organic apples. I personally prefer apples from Kinnaur (Himachal Pradesh).
But if you do not get organic apples, then you can use regular apples. Just soak the apples in water in which some vinegar has been mixed. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes and then thoroughly rinse the apples. Use 1 tablespoon vinegar for 1 cup water.
