This recipe was inspired by a desperate mom, aka me. Tell me why my kids always want an apple but never finish it.
I was so tired of seeing half eaten apples on the counter tops, in the trash, and sometimes even UNDER THE COUCH – compliments of the 2 year old.
So now, whenever there are unwanted kid-apples I slice off the bitten parts then throw them in the blender to make an easy apple twist yogurt smoothie.
To be quite honest, I don’t even get upset about the leftovers anymore because it gives me the excuse to whip up a quick batch of smoothies and call it breakfast.
But in order to keep me from feeling that mom guilt it needs to be tasty, filling, and healthy.
DO I NEED TO USE HOMEMADE YOGURT?
No, I just prefer to make ours using homemade yogurt because its cheaper but store-bought regular yogurt is fine to use also.
WHY NOT JUST USE MILK?
The probiotics in yogurt are what make this cozy treat SUPER HEALTHY!
WHAT IF I’M LACTOSE INTOLERANT?
Many lactose intolerant people can tolerate yogurt but not milk because of the fermentation and straining process. My daughter is very lactose intolerant but has zero problems with the homemade yogurt I make because it’s fermented for a full 24 hours.
