Holiday Flavors - Apple Pie Protein Smoothie

A close second to the Pumpkin Pie smoothie in our office is the Apple Pie smoothie - blend this up and share it with you family and friends, it will be the hit of the party!

At a "pick-your-own" apple orchard in Medina, TX.
Apple Pie Smoothie
1 cup milk or almond milk
1 scoop vanilla Chike protein powder (or other vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 gala apple, cut into cubes
1 tbsp maple syrup
Allspice, to taste

Place all ingredients in a Nutri-bullet or blender and blend to desired consistency.

Protein Smoothie Tips
You can add ice to any blended shake to make a protein smoothie "on rocks" or blend ice into the smoothie to make a "frappe". Fruit can sweeten your shake naturally plus adds fiber and vitamins for extra nutritional benefit. For a thicker shake, reduce the amount of milk or milk substite. For a higher protein shake, double up on the protein powder or add a 1/4 cup of nuts or nut butter.

Happy holidays and feel free to share your holiday protein shake recipes with us!
