Apple Pie Smoothie
This tart, but sweet, cinnamon smoothie is reminiscent of an apple pie. (A much healthier apple pie) This smoothie is quick and easy to make and will fill you up thanks to the fiber and protein. This smoothie includes maple extract which should not be confused with maple syrup. It also includes hazelnut extract. You can find maple and hazelnut extract in the seasonings and spices section of your grocery store over by the vanilla extract. If you can’t find maple extract you can omit (although we love the taste with it) and the hazelnut extract can be substituted for almond extract. This recipe can be used as breakfast while on the diabetes or weight loss program. This is not a snack smoothie. If you have this smoothie for breakfast you can still have a snack smoothie later in the day. Enjoy!

8 oz. unsweetened soy milk (non-GMO)

Add remaining ingredients to blender and process until smooth.
If you don’t have time to freeze your tofu beforehand, you can still make this smoothie, but it won’t be as thick. Try adding 2-3 ice cubes to thicken it up if desired.
Use a tart apple for this smoothie such as honey crisp, granny smith or pink lady.
