(quaint upbeat music) – How about a recovery smoothie
that tastes like apple pie? Well, for this video in
the GCN Haute Cuisine and Nutrition series,
we’re making an apple pie recovery smoothie with,
surprise, surprise, oats. This recipe is super simple. It contains 20 grams of protein, along with complex and
fast-adjusting carbohydrates, perfect after training ride. Obviously, staring with the
most important thing, oats. 90 grams of oats, which
is about a cup full. Then we’re gonna add 250
milliliters of skin milk, 250 milliliters of cold apple juice, an actual apple, few drops of vanilla essence, and if you like them, cinnamon and ginger, and just to finish, a few
spoonfuls of low-fat Greek yogurt. First things first, I would wash an apple and just chop it up, take out the core. You don’t even need to really chop it up, you can just bung it in, in quarters. Now I don’t peel my apples because most of the nutrients are in the skin. It’s all good. So, I’ve got everything measured out, just gonna pop it all in. A few drops of vanilla essence, half a teaspoon of cinnamon,
if you like cinnamon. Obviously, if you don’t like cinnamon, just don’t use it. If you’re a fan of ginger, you could add a tiny bit of ground ginger. I love ginger. If you’ve done a long, hot ride, you could, at this point,
add a pinch of salt, but obviously you don’t have to. Apple juice. Milk. And finally, 50 grams of
low-fat, high-protein yogurt. Simple as that, bung it all
in, and now it’s time to blend. Let’s blend this baby. (blender whirring) Voila, that is a meal in a glass. If you’re in a hurry, you can drink this straight from the jug, but I
got told I had to look polite, so I’m gonna drink it from a glass. Ah, there’s actually too much, oops. Mm, yum. Now, this has got 20
grams of protein in it, 120 grams of carbohydrate. This is perfect to sip on in the hour after you’ve
finished your ride. You could actually make
it before you ride, so it’s ready for when you come back, or you can make it and
take it with you to work, or to school, so you can have
it after your commute, yum. If you like this recipe,
give it a thumbs up. You might like to check out
