Pink Lady® top tip
Set aside the apple peel, sprinkle with some brown sugar and oven bake at 150°C on a lined baking tray for approx. 15 minutes (keep your eye on them) to obtain beautiful apple crisps! If your smoothie isn’t quite sweet enough, you can always add a few dates to the blender in place of sugar!
