Cinnamon Apple or Pear Smoothie

Photo by:

Here’s a blended drink for fall or winter. It’s a delightful change-of-pace fruit beverage to make when summer fruit is out of season.

Yield: 2 to 3 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 ripe banana, broken into several pieces
  • 2 medium soft apples (such as Cortland or Golden Delicious) or ripe pears, peeled, cored, and coarsely diced
  • 1 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt or soy yogurt
  • 1 cup apple juice or apple cider
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smoothly puréed. Or place in a container and process with an immersion blender. Serve at once in tall glasses.
