You have probably noticed a theme here. Dessert-flavored smoothies. How shocking!
Really I just came across these flavors of yogurt that I had never seen before. Yes, I’ll have 100 calorie apple pie for breakfast, thanks. There was also a cafe mocha flavored yogurt? And I kind of wanted to make something with it? But I couldn’t think of what to pair it with for a smoothie besides more chocolate. #thestruggle
Yesterday I told you about my actual struggle with fruits and veggies. Today, I’m telling you that I really love apples. I’ve got that apple a day thing totally nailed down. They’re the one fruit I have always liked, which might be a little sad. But I’m trying to branch out, honestly. Tomorrow’s smoothie really will be shocking!
I bought some protein powder about a week or so ago and haven’t used it yet. Do you use it in your smoothies? It’s something I probably need to do a little more research on because I really don’t know much about it or which brands are the best. Typically I get hungry for meals way earlier than I feel like I should, and because I’m trying to eat healthier, I’ve been more aware of what I’m snacking on and when. Adding a little protein powder could be a great way to beef up a snack or breakfast without actually adding much more to it. Does it work for you?
To intensify the apple pie flavor in the yogurt (which is pretty spot on), I added frozen, chopped apples, a pinch of cinnamon, and a little sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs on the top. Pretty simple!
