Apple Pie Smoothie

October 15, 2018

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.
