Fresh, delicious and spicy. The Smoothies with Ice Cream Apple and Spices, is something really special, sweet to the right point. The fresh taste of green apple that may be a fruit sometimes taken for granted is among those that I love the most to prepare smoothies. It goes well with everything, always gives that touch of sweetness or in this case of acidity that manages to balance everything!
The spicy touch is given by cinnamon, a perfect spice with every type of apple and Jamaican Pepper from its different nuances of aroma and vanilla ice cream makes it more dense and creamy. It’s a really tasty way to refresh yourself during the hot days that are coming, or for a delicious but not challenging after dinner.
Smoothies with Ice Cream Spices and Green Apple
The ice cream I used is vanilla, precisely that of the Haagen Dazs, the only brand of ice cream I love to madness (maybe even too much)! The taste of vanilla is rich and intense perfect for this Smoothies with Ice Cream!
Apples? Granny Smith, with a fresh and sour taste, will make the smoothie perfect without adding too much sweetness. And finally a spicy note that makes this smoothies with ice cream really special, a hint of cinnamon and Jamaican pepper.
The Cinnamon we all know is a very fragrant spice obtained from the bark of the cinnamon tree. While the Jamaican Pepper, are small black berries, larger than the common pepper, are about as big as the juniper berries to give you an example. It’s a spice made from a tree from Central Almerica and the Caribbean. It is known by various names, Pimento in Spanish, Jamaican pepper, Carnation pepper, because it’s very reminiscent of the scent of cloves, with which it can often be confused. In English it’s even called Allspice, because it recalls the combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
The use of Jamaican pepper also in desserts is not something rare indeed! It’s one of the basic spices to prepare the Pumpkinspice, the mix of spices used to aromatize many American sweet recipes such as Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Spicy Milk or pancakes! Try to believe!
