Allergen Information: Contains tree nuts
Special Equipment: High Speed Blender
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!
*To make this smoothie without tree nuts, use your favorite milk substitute like rice or hemp milk.
- 1 granny smith apple, seeds removed & cut into fourths (organic)
- 2 dates, pitted
- 1 T hemp seeds (optional, but great for you!)
- ¾ t cinnamon
- ¼ t vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup ice
- Put all ingredients in high speed blender (except ice) in the order shown and blend until smooth. Add ice, and blend again. Enjoy!
