Apple Crumble Smoothie
 
 
Smoothies are great for many reasons. One is that they’re so easy to make. Another is that you sort of can’t go wrong, no matter what you do. You toss stuff in there and blend and the result is always pretty awesome. Same thing goes for this smoothie. When I make it, I like the texture to be somewhere between a fruit smoothie and Bircher muesli. Ps. While you wait for the ingredients to cool down, you can make coffee, take a shower or just stand still and wait impatiently, like I do.

Ingredients
  • Serves: 2-3
  • 6 dl/ 2 ½ cups of Greek yoghurt, around 3 % fat

Instructions
  1. In a dry pan, toast almonds, hazelnuts and oats on medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir frequently. Put into blender (or a big bowl if you’re using a handheld mixer) and leave to cool.
  2. Now put a dollop of butter in the pan and fry the apples for 3-5 minutes on medium heat. Add the cinnamon and stir. Then add the maple syrup and stir some more. Pour into the blender/bowl. Add the dates as well.
  3. Let cool for 5 minutes. Blend. Add Greek yoghurt, vanilla powder/essence and a 2-3 ice cubes. Blitz some more. (Or let it be if you’re using a handheld).
