Apple smoothie recipe update

Icy apple smoothieApple smoothies are a smart snack with less sugar and more nutritional value than milkshakes. The drink also benefits from a little maple syrup. Here's the recipe:

For two servings: Core, chop and peel your favorite apple variety. Process in a blender until smooth with 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce, 2 tablespoons quick oats, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1/2 teaspoon pie spice, 1 cup of light coconut milk (or rice milk), 2 teaspoons maple syrup and 4 ice cubes.
