Monday Munchies – Cinnamon Apple Smoothie

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!

Cinnamon Apple Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 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!
