Caramel Apple Shakeology

Caramel Apple Shakeology

Caramel apples often mean a sugar rush, sticky fingers and lips, caramel cemented between my teeth, and a potential emergency visit to the dentist.

The next time you get a hankering for the sweet treat, try this Caramel Apple Shakeology instead: It uses unsweetened applesauce and caramel extract to capture the flavor of those candy-smothered treats, and Vanilla Shakeology.

You can keep yours simple, like this recipe, or add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or powdered ginger.

I don’t eat a lot of applesauce, so when I open a new jar for a recipe like this shake or these yummy muffins, I freeze the rest in ice cube trays to make apple sauce ice cubes to add to my Shakeology smoothies.

Place two tablespoons of applesauce into each well of the ice cube tray, and freeze. Once they’re frozen solid, empty the tray into a plastic bag. Two cubes equals about ¼ cup.

Caramel extract has the same buttery, burnt-sugar flavor of real caramel, without any of the guilt.

It’s a game-changer for your sweet tooth. Look for it in the baking aisle of your supermarket (hint: It’s near the vanilla extract), or buy it online.
