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.
