The Apple Pie Crumble Protein Smoothie
 
1.5 cups almond milk (or coconut almond milk)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder — unflavored works also (I use NOW unflavored). Use our protein powder guide if you’re looking to buy a jug. Toss in 1.5-2 scoops if you want it extra protein-y.
1 tbsp. Metamucil Fiber Powder (unflavored) — not only boosts fiber content, but also helps create a better smoothie consistency.
1 apple, remove the core
1/2 banana
3 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp. almond butter
1 tsp. apple/pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup rolled oats
4 ice cubes
*Optional — add 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum to make it thicker.
We always recommend a high speed blender (like a Vitamix) to make pro-status smoothies.

Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2 smoothies
Throw everything in a blender.
If you’ve got a variable speed blender, start on low and work your way up slowly to top power.
Chug.
