An Apple A Day (with a Pear)

I’ve been busy cooking away and eating all of it as well, hence the silence for a week now. Summer has begun and it’s quite awful I must add. The fear of possible dehydration got to me this weekend and I’ve decided to whip up hydrating smoothies at least twice a week.

This weekend was quite a wholesome breakfast – with three whole wheat toasts and the unsweetened peanut butter from The Butternut Co.Β accompanied by an apple-pear smoothie, my day was done.

What you need:

  • 1 large apple – chopped up
  • 1 large pear – chopped up
  • 1 tbsp flax seed powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free milk

You can avoid a sweetener because apples and pears are already rich in natural sugar.

Why it’s better to add some milk or water – given that I used my apple and pear with the skin on, the smoothie will seem a little gritty. Milk makes it a little smooth, ensuring that you don’t choke on it.

The process:

Blitz it all up and you’re done.
