Made in only 5 minutes, this sour apple smoothie is refreshing and so tasty! Don’t let the green colour scare you away. You can not even taste how healthy this is for you. This is not your typical smoothie made using a banana base. Instead, I’ve ditched the banana for this one and I’m using some juicier fruit and veggie options. Perhaps it’d be more fair to call this a juice, rather than smoothie. It’s not as thick as a smoothie, but also not as thin as juice. Since I’m using my blender and not a juicer, I’m sticking with smoothie. Of course, I’d love to hear what you think once you give this one a try!
How do you make a sour apple smoothie?
Like most smoothie recipes, just toss all the ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. No fancy preparation here. Just a delicious and nutritious drink that you can enjoy for breakfast, or a mid day pick me up snack.
This recipe can be easily doubled, or more as needed. Don’t be afraid to mix this deliciousness with a little vodka either! Think sour apple martini, without all the added sugar! A healthy-ish alcoholic beverage is something I think we can all get on board with. After all, it does contain a healthy dose of Vitamin C, potassium, and even iron! How many alcoholic beverages can claim the same? 🙂
