Apple Cider Smoothie

IMG_7699.JPG

Yesterday felt like summer here in the Hudson Valley. It was hot. The four bottles of sports drink I brought on our four hour ride were not enough. I drained three of them in the first two hours. Realizing we were headed for trouble, Laurel and I diverted from our original route and headed for the closest town. Finding a town, with a store that’s open isn’t always easy when you are deep into the Catskills. But just as we were starting to get worried, we passed a farm stand offering free samples of apple cider. We filled our bottles. Apple cider may not be a triathlete’s typical hydration method, but I think we’re on to something. We managed to get back on our bikes and finish the ride hard.

So we thought we’d share this Apple Cider smoothie recipe. Try it for an energy boost on a busy day or as an after school or pre-practice snack for the little ones. –Bec
