A refreshing, subtly sweet, dairy-free fruit smoothie that delivers nutritionally where traditional “milkshakes” lack… packed with good-for-you antioxidant properties. Stemilt sweet apples are the perfect partner to a bevy of berries and luscious almond-milk-based, dairy-free “yogurt.” A touch of honey and a snippet of fresh basil add all the natural sweetness necessary for a pleasingly crisp “milkshake-like” morning beverage.

Ingredients

  • 1 Stemilt apple, cored and quartered
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 6 large fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 3 to 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup (or less, as preferred for consistency) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1, 6-ounce container dairy-free, plain cultured almond milk “yogurt” (like So Delicious)

Directions

Add apple, ice, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, basil, honey, almond milk, and dairy-free “yogurt” to pitcher of high-speed electric blender (one suitable for crushing ice and handling firm textures). Blend on high (or use “smoothie” option, if applicable) for approximately 1 minute. (If necessary, stop machine intermittently to scrape down sides or press ingredients down to remove any air pockets that might impede blending.) Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
