Apple-Almond Smoothie (high-protein)

Somebody had requested a healthy, high-protein drink. Well, here it is! Anybody can make this! It takes only 5 minutes to make! A smoothie is generally a blended, chilled beverage made from fresh fruit (most of the times). Read more about it here. This is just one of the innumerable number of smoothie we can make! From now on, I plan to make a smoothie every week. Its healthy, tasty & of course QUICK! That's what we all are looking for, aren't we? Quick yet tasty dishes.
If you want to read more about the various types of smoothie one can make, do buy the book The Ultimate Smoothie Book. You'll find recipes beyond your imagination! ;-) 
So, before you make a smoothie, make sure you have a blender or a mixer at home. You can make it manually too, but it is boring & again, time-consuming.
To make the Apple-Almond Smoothie, you need - 
Apple - 1
Almonds - 6-8 pieces (& any other dry fruits)
Sugar - 1-2 teaspoons
Whipping cream OR Ice Cream (optional) - 1 tablespoon
Milk OR Yogurt - 100 ml
Vanilla Essence - 1 teaspoon
Hershey's Chocolate Syrup (optional)
 Method - 
1. In a blender, add the Almonds & other dry fruits you want to use AND blend it to for a powder. Remove it in a mixing bowl.
2. Slice the apple into small pieces & add them in the blender & blend into a coarse paste
3. Add the vanilla essence, cream/ice cream & blend into a smooth paste.
4. Add the paste into the dry almond-dry fruits powder. Add some milk/yogurt & mix well.
5. If you want, you can add the chocolate syrup & mix well.
6. Pour it into a glass & decorate with more apples.
Enjoy!!!! ☺


Thanks for the feedback! :-)
