Apple Pie Breakfast Smoothie

Apple pie smoothie

Apple pie is one my favourite ‘comfort’ desserts. It’s hard to resist a slice when the aroma of caramelized apples and cinnamon waft through the room. I was going to make a simple apple smoothie but with a touch of cinnamon and addition of caramelized apples, this smoothie reminded me of an apple pie. I add banana to this for some body in the smoothie. There’s no refined sugar, but only a dash of honey. It makes for a great breakfast on the go.
