Celebrate Apple Cake Shake

One of the AWESOME weight loss surgery friendly products in the Southern California Meet & Greet Swag Bag was a sample of Celebrate Vitamins ENS (Essential Nutrient System) shake in the Vanilla Cake Batter flavor. Each shake contains a high potency multivitamin, 500 mg of calcium citrate, 4 g of fiber, and 25 g of whey isolate protein in each serving. How I wished these had been around in my first few months post weight loss surgery. I've shared my love of this product before (and the Chocolate Milk flavor) and they are delicious mixed with just water or milk but what I did with it yesterday AM was beyond yum...

Shelly's Apple Cake Shake

8 oz. Vanilla Soy Milk (any milk will do)
1 single serve packet Celebrate Vitamin's ENS - Multivitamin, Calcium, & Protein Shake in Vanilla Cake Batter flavor
1/4 cup Shelly's Apple Pie Innards
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Caramel Torani Syrup
3-4 Ice Cubes
Optional toppings: SF Land o Lakes Whipped Cream, Apple Pie Spice

Blend on high. I served it with a squirt of SF Land o Lakes Whipped Cream and a sprinkle of Apple Pie Spice. Yum.

Shelly's Apple Pie Innards

2 Apples, sliced
1/4 cup chopped Nuts (I used combo of walnuts & pecans)
1/4 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Caramel Torani Syrup

Heat on low, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until apples are tender but still whole. Great mixed into a shake, on top of sweetened ricotta, Greek yogurt, oatmeal, pudding, ricottage cheese pancakes, protein ice cream or cakes or on it's own.

Made a huge batch (tripled) of Apple pie innards because we ended up with a surplus of apples this week. My husband, 16 year old daughter and 17 month old son approve! My daughter declared that she would rather her pies come like that from now on, without a crust. So delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
