Yes, I know the hot days of summer are over when smoothies are usually popular, but when I whipped up this tasty treat over the weekend I couldn’t help but think “I must take a picture and blog about this!” I really was that excited about it. I think the secret is the sweetened condensed milk. It really adds depth, creaminess, and a subtle caramel flavor to the drink. You could even make a caramel sauce and create your own Caramel Apple Smoothie, or try applesauce (or frozen applesauce) instead of a fresh apple. Let your imagination run wild!
- 1 medium sized apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
- 5 ice cubes
- 1/3 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve in a fancy glass with a straw (totally optional). Enjoy!
