Granny Apple Pie Smoothie

This is one of those times I wish I had a different talent.  I know, I know, we aren’t supposed to do that.  But really.  Can I have just a few dance moves?? Or an eye for photography??

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to bust moves (Lord help me!), but maybe photography one day.  I look at this picture and long for a green apple faintly in the background and maybe a few cinnamon sticks up front…..

BUT until that day comes (maybe a goal for 2015?), you get a picture like this….and you get to use your imagination!

I love the creamy, cinnamon, tart flavor of this smoothie.  You could also add 1/2 avocado for an extra creamy boost.

I love this smoothie when I’m thinking about the holidays, or want a change from the traditional.  I change up my smoothie routines all the time so I stay interested and don’t get bored with the same ole thang!

Enjoy!

*To make this smoothie without tree nuts, use your favorite milk substitute like rice or hemp milk.
