We know the saying is, “as American as apple pie, but how about an apple smoothie?
1 SMOOTHIE (12 OUNCES)
prep time:5 MINS total time:5 MINS The flavor of apple pie, blended into a healthy Apple Smoothie! Rich, creamy and vegan, it’s made with apple, oatmeal, peanut butter and spices
1 medium sweet apple — washed with peel on
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped frozen banana — about ½ of a large banana or 8, ¾-inch slices
1 tablespoon peanut butter — or almond butter
1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup— plus additional to taste
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon— plus additional for serving
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch ground allspice
Small handful ice
To core the apple: Wash and dry the apple, and leave the peel on. Stand the apple on its base. Place your knife on top, near the stem. Cut straight down along the core. The first side of the apple will come off. Set it aside. Lay the apple flat, cut-side down. Cut off the right and left sides, keeping your knife as near the core as possible. Turn the apple, and cut off the one remaining side. You should have a long, rectangular piece that contains the core, and 4 nice big chunks (the ones you cut away). Discard the core. Cut the four pieces into 1-inch chunks. Place it in a blender.
To the blender, add the remaining ingredients in the order listed: almond milk, oatmeal, banana, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and allspice. Blend until smooth. Add a small handful of ice, then blend again. For an even thicker smoothie, add a few ice cubes and blend again. For a thinner smoothie, add more milk. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon as desired and enjoy!

Ricky and Cathy represented us a sellers and did a terrific job from the outset of setting the asking price, advising us as to how to show the house, guiding us through the inspection process, and finally closing the deal. They checked in with us throughout and stayed on top of things until closing. Very pleased!
Super knowledgeable of the Santa Fe real estate market. Well connected to the broker network. Depth of experience showed in everything from pricing, staging, negotiations, to closing. Truly appreciated their professionalism in working FOR us. We felt we were in good hands while both buying and selling with Ricky & Cathy. They are a team that we would work with again.
Ricky and Cathy were absolutely professional, knowledgeable, and could not have been more helpful. We recommend them without reservation. They listened to us, showed us everything that fit, negotiated carefully on our behalf, and handled the escrow and closing flawlessly.
We are new to Santa Fe and loved the professional service we received from Ricky Allen and Cathy Griffin when we bought our condo. We have already referred our friends to them. We recommend them both without reservation.
We started with another realty group and agent team and then switched to Ricky and Cathy. In the midst of a pandemic, and the unique characteristics of our home, Ricky and Cathy showed the kind of steady hand that got the job done. Ricky listened very carefully to our needs and what we thought were the strengths of the home and then those things were highlighted in the online and printed materials, as well as during showings. Their manner was always respectful to us and potential buyers. They responded quickly to questions and concerns. I would highly recommend them for selling any property in the Santa Fe area. We are grateful for their efforts.
