Apple Frapple


The thirst continues ;)

The hot climate is making me indulge on more of liquid diet than other forms of food which is so unlikely in my case. I'm a person who would happily survive with just one glass of water a day and people even used to call me a camel ;) But now things have absolutely changed and I'm cornered to consume more of liquid due to the super hot climate.

On one such thirsty moment this morning, I came up with two super quick versions of apple smoothies and both of them were damn yummm that I bet no one would resist having only a glass ;)

Apple Frapple


Apple - 2
Milk - 1/2 cup
Vanilla ice cream - 1 scoop
Sugar - for taste

Cinnamon powder - a pinch

Apple smoothie


Peel the apples and chop them roughly.

Powder cinnamon and keep aside.

Add apples, milk, vanilla ice cream and sugar to the blender and process until smooth.

Transfer to serving glasses and add a pinch of cinnamon powder to it.

Truly aromatic and energizing apple frapple is ready :)

Serve chill and enjoy :)

Apple vanilla yoghurt smoothie

You can replace milk with soy milk or curd.

You can add apple pieces and other fruits to the yoghurt smoothie and serve it in a bowl as well :)

Plateful said...

Ohh Nithya, am soooo in love with your photographs..! Looks like a beautiful painting, ah! Loved the pastels and of course the drink too!

Archana said...

Looks delicious. Looks like this is going to be my tomorrows breakfast.

Just curious how has the apple that is on the edge of the glass remained such a lovely colour and not brown.

turmericnspice said...

Awesome clicks the combo of apple and cinamon....only thing the drink discolors too it has to be made just before serving...!!

Radhika said...

clicks are enough to quench my thirst. Damn Good.

Sunanda said...

Perfect refreshing drink for the summer...lovely click..

Unknown said...

Both the drinks looks absolutely yummy...And beautiful clicks esp the 2nd one!

Nithya said...

Thanks all :)

@Archana - I dipped them in lemon juice and thats the secret why they dint turn brown.

@Turmericnspice - These pink shaded apples(not sure of the name) dint turn brown soon. The one with cinnamon is the color you would get and I almost took half an hour to set up things and shoot but it dint discolor. the other one got the brown shade cause of vanilla essence only. Otherwise its fine. May be you should try these apples.
