I’m a girl with a sweet tooth, but I also enjoy and appreciate healthy foods – and feel much better when I eat healthy. And yes – they say life’s a balance – but that doesn’t mean a Diet Coke and a donut for breakfast.

This apple pie smoothie tastes fabulous, and is quite filling. It’s reminiscent of a slice of cinnamony apple pie, has a great smooth texture and is full of super healthy ingredients.

It’s a quick, kid-friendly breakfast, and one even donut- loving husbands will drink down eagerly. Perfect for guests who visit over the holidays, too. You can call it “the morning after detox” – they’ll call it delicious, and think you’re the coolest family member ever.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium apples (gala or honeycrisp work well)
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 pitted dates
  • 1 tablespoon ground golden flax seed
  • Handful of raw walnuts (6-8)

Directions

Peel, quarter and core the apples.

Place all ingredients in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

Pour into two glasses, and serve with straws. Enjoy!
