Apple Pie Smoothie
Sometimes it can be a challenge to fit breakfast into a busy schedule in the morning. Often times we rush to get to work or school, skipping breakfast and feeling hungry before lunch time hits. It is important to be able to get your system going with something nutritious while tasting good. It gives energy for the rest of the day and prevents from over indulging and feeling tired later.
So often times on a busy day, I will whip up a smoothie, and drink it on the way to where ever I am going. It does not take long to make. You can vary the ingredients with what you feel like eating, or what is in season at the time. In the summer, I choose berries, peaches and mangos. In the fall and winter, apples and berries are wonderful. Throw in some protein powder to keep you full, maybe some oats, and you are set!
Below, I have included one of my favorite autumn smoothies, apple pie smoothie. It reminds me of cinnamon scented apple pie with ice cream and yet it is healthy! Nothing wrong with a breakfast that tastes delicious as well as nourishes the body!
