If there’s one dessert I never turn down, it’s pie. I’ll take pie over cake any day, hands down, and I don’t think I’ve ever met a pie I didn’t like! I would probably eat it every day…if only it had no calories and gave me a six pack (I can say from experience, neither of those are true. Sadly.) So I decided to make apple pie in shake form, which turned out to be almost as delicious! I added protein powder to make it the perfect post-workout snack. It tasted like a splurge, but without all the fat and sugar of real pie – I think I’ll save that for special occasions and enjoy these in the meantime!
Apple Pie Protein Shake
- 2/3 apple, sliced into small pieces
- 1/2 cup milk (I used soy)
- 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- Stevia or other sweetener, to taste
1.) In a blender, add ice and the rest of the ingredients. Blend to desired consistency. Add stevia/sweetener to taste. Top with more cinnamon and enjoy!
