I find an apple in my smoothie is a great way to get some fiber in the mornings! This easy vegetarian and vegan fat-free breakfast smoothie is great because you don't have to spend time chopping any fruit - just blend away! A great fat-free breakfast or summer smoothie recipe for hot days. Fat-free apple smoothie recipe courtesy US Apple Association.
- 2 cups applesauce
- 1 cup apple juice
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 tbsp honey (omit if vegan)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
For a healthier fat-free smoothie, I recommend using a natural applesauce that doesn't contain any added sugar. Read the label to make sure.
Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Serve immediately, or keep chilled until serving time. Garnish with additional cinnamon, if desired.
Makes 2 apple smoothies.
