Superfood Smoothie: Amazing Apple Pie
It was my birthday last weekend, and as one of my birthday traditions Husband Hanway and I went apple picking!
The weather was perfect, and it was wonderful to get out in the fall sunshine and pick our own food (and eat it straight from the tree). However, there are only so many apples a family of two (the cats can't eat apples) can eat, so I needed to find a way to utilize them in our daily diets. Thus my Apple Pie Smoothie was born!
Apples are one of my favorites fruits, they are high in anti aging and skin protecting antioxidants, and are a great source of pectin, a fiber that helps improve gut health and that can lower cholesterol levels.
Oats add more healthy fiber and are rich in minerals such as manganese, and iron and high in Vitamin B, essential for energy. They help to thicken the smoothie, ensuring you feel satisfied after drinking.
Cinnamon is proven to help stabilize blood sugar levels, and it gives this smoothie warmth and depth of flavor.
