This fruit is good for you and plentiful year round so keeping it as part of your diet is easy and a good choice for optimum health. ApplesMalic Acid and tartaric acids help break down fat in the body and this also aids in digestion and helps to lower cholesterol. Be careful, apples can tend to be a bit frothy, but that only adds to the visual appeal of this apple smoothie.

Tip: Adding cinnamon or cardamom is nice change in place of the nutmeg.

Smoothie Ingredients:

  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 7 ounces apple juice
  • 7 ounces coconut milk
  • ¼ tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

Add the apple with the coconut milk, apple juice and nutmeg. Blend until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and sprinkle a little nutmeg on top for garnish. Should serve 2 people nicely.
