Fall is here and the cooler weather is on its way! Since we usually do not get cooler weather here in the south, until November (or later), I like to make seasonal drinks and foods just to put me in the fall spirit. I love apples. They taste so crisp and fresh in the fall. I love going to pick my own or buying from the local farmers market, but I never know what to do with all of them. I recently came across a recipe for an apple smoothie that is amazing and healthy. I will be using this one, in my rotation, as a breakfast on the go. The best part is that it is super easy to make.

Apple Pie Smoothie Recipe:

1 apple peeled and sliced

1 tsp lemon juice

1 ½ tsp pure maple syrup, honey (or any natural sweetener that you prefer)

1 tbsp chia seed

¼ tsp nutmeg

1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon (you can use cassia cinnamon, but Ceylon has more anti-inflammatory properties)

8 oz almond milk

1 cup of ice

 

Blend all ingredients together for the perfect fall smoothie.
