This certainly is a decadent and nutritional bombshell of a smoothie! Why not use your favourite apple and add nuts and seeds you prefer for variety.

A special thanks to Teresa Ulyate from Cupcakes & Couscous for this fantastic recipe.

Makes:500ml

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 apples (250g) peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • ½ cup milk of your choice
  • ½ cup plain yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp rolled oats
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • small pinch of nutmeg
  • small pinch of cloves
  • 1 tbsp roughly chopped raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp roughly chopped brazil nuts
  • 2 tsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1-2 tsp of honey, to taste
  • 2 tsp chia seeds

METHOD:

1.) Place all of the ingredients except for the chia seeds into a high powered blender. Blend until smooth and combined.
2.) Pour the mixture into two glasses. Sprinkle a teaspoon of chia seeds over each smoothie and serve.

*Note: You can leave the apples unpeeled if you prefer (there is certainly a nutritional benefit to doing so!) but your smoothie may be a bit more textured as a result.

*Replace dairy products with almond, coconut or soy if you are following a dairy-free diet.
