Food Factor: Apple Pie In a Glass

by Ms. Natasha Haynes, MSU Extension Service

Some of my favorite winter desserts are fruit-based, including apple pie and apple crisp. But as we begin the new year, I need to get back to healthier eating habits!

If you are looking for a bright apple flavor without the calories found in a pie or caramel apple, try this smoothie! A one cup serving is just 90 calories! We used a sweet red apple when we tested this recipe. Next time I might try a Granny Smith apple to see how it would taste with a tart fruit.

Apple Pie in a Glass Ingredients:

- 1 cup milk, non-fat or low-fat

- 1 cup vanilla yogurt, non-fat or low-fat

- 2 large apples, peeled and cored

- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground

- 1 handful ice cubes

Wash hands with soap and water.

Wash and peel apples. Remove the core and seeds and cut into 1-inch cubes.

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend for 1 minute.

Serve immediately.

Thanks to UMass Extension’s Nutrition Education Program for this printer-friendly recipe.
