An apple pie smoothie that can’t be beat! Who says delicious can’t also be healthy? This fall snack proves it! When I think of fall I get a whirlwind of memories: blankets, tea, cinnamon, apple crumble, and warm hiking boots. This balanced apple smoothie is a great way to add a bit of nostalgia to your day while also getting a tasty protein boost. Incorporate this shake in as a mid-morning or afternoon snack for a great way to add needed energy to your day.
