Apple a la Mode Smoothie

Make this smoothie for the apple of your eye, because not only is it rich and delicious, apples contain pectin, a fiber that helps to reduce cholesterol.

Adapted from "Smoothies: 50 Recipes for High-Energy Refreshment" by Mary Corpening Barber, Sara Corpening, and Lori Lyn Narlock.

Directions

For the unsweetened applesauce:

Combine apple and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the water has evaporated. Mash with a fork. Let cool before using.

For the smoothie:

Combine the frozen yogurt, applesauce, and apple juice in a blender. Add the apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Blend until smooth.
