275. Creamy Green Apple Smoothie [Dairy Free]

Creamy Green Apple Smoothie|Dairy Free 10 g Protein | Ann Ning Learning How


Mommy picked up a big bag of hemp seeds for me one day at Costco since she heard they might be good for me. And they are – they are a good way for me to get some non-dairy protein without protein powder (I prefer the taste of whey protein powders anyway, but I’m trying to abstain overall). My brand has 10 grams of protein per 3 Tbsp serving. I went through a hemp-milk making phase recently. Yeah. That didn’t work out so well. Technically, the seeds blend up to a lovely rich white milky state, but I just don’t like the taste. I have never tasted the kind of hemp milk you buy in the store, though – that might be delicious, but my homemade variety didn’t tickle my fancy. This smoothie, however, is dominated by the taste of fresh green apple, and I LOVE green apple juice. There are juice bars at almost every food court in Singapore and Malaysia, and although there were piles of gorgeous tropical fruits I’d always order the classic green apple – it’s that tasty. And one of the benefits of the Vitamix (and whole-fruit juicers) is that it pulverizes what you put in it so you get to enjoy all the nutrition/fiber of the whole fruit or vegetable – not just the juice. And the hemp adds a nice creaminess. Don’t be afraid of the hemp. Just do it.

  1. I’m with you on the green apple juice being my fave, too. This smoothie sounds interesting – the creamy component makes it different. (Usually I don’t associate apple w/ creamy stuff unless it’s caramel of course! πŸ˜‰ Was at the cupcake store (a different one this time πŸ™‚ and they also sell pies. They had an apple cream cheese pie. I’m sure it’s yummy, as is your smoothie! I also like the idea of getting a creamy texture plus the protein minus the dairy source. One can only intake so much Greek yogurt :). XOXOs

      • The cupcakes are OK (freshly baked, but once or twice, they’ve been on the dry side…not as consistent as my favorite spot) and honestly, there’s just not enough frosting on them! Had a yummy sugar cookie from there, though. And would like to try some of their other items (like that apple pie – it comes in a mini size so that might be a tempting option one of these days).

Comments, anyone? Thanks for saying "hi" :) (Sorry I can't reply all the time, but when I do the reply appears only on this blog unless I remember to reply via email.)
