vegan apple pie smoothie

In between Thanksgiving and Christmas, you get a break, albeit small, from the sugar rush of holiday desserts.

But why resist the holiday flavors? This smoothie recipe lets you get your daily apple pie fix without indulging in the whole works. Enjoy!

This apple pie smoothie recipe can be enjoyed daily. There’s no buttery, white-flour-based crust or onslaught of white sugar — all the ingredients are wholesome, healthy and delicious! Feel free to adjust it to your tastes or to what you have readily available.
