Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s apple trees have been producing like crazy this year! They are wonderfully sweet, juicy, crisp apples that stand well on their own, and are fabulous in apple sauce, apple pie, coffee cakes and such.
Now that the nice fall temperatures have been taking a break and scorching heat is upon us once more, Dr. Tae Yun Kim has come up with this new, and most fabulously refreshing drink, that will make you think you are having liquid, chilled apple pie, except better, and all healthy and good for you!
Here is what you do (after you picked the apples):
Into the blender container, put the following:
1/8 – 1/4 cup nuts – we use a good mixture of almonds, cashew nuts, pistachios, pine nuts and sometimes peanuts – feel free to use whatever you like, and can tolerate. We use the same mixture used here. If you cannot have nuts, we have successfully used all natural, gluten free protein powder
1/2 – 1 cup ice cubes
sprinkle of cinnamon or apple pie spice
2-3 apples, peeled (you can leave the peel on if you prefer)
depending on the sweetness of your apples, add maple syrup to your liking – you can use any sweetener you like, but we love the flavor, and love knowing it is all natural, pretty much straight out of the tree
add chilled water (although coconut milk also works well) – enough to the consistency of your liking – we typically make it more into a cold drink, but enjoy it as smoothie as well
And there you have it! Enjoy and get energized!
And as an extra bonus, do check out the story of the apple farmers in Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s book, “The Silent Master,” starting on page 127. You will love it!
