Super Smoothies :: Apple Cinnamon Smoothie


We just came back from a long walk and you can feel that hint of Spring in the air.I know it’s still early and there is always that March snow storm that comes out of no where…. but I’m hopeful we’ll skip right over it and get to dress weather already.  Aiden was more than happy to kick off his boots several times during our walk, anticipating the days where his feet will be free again.  When we got home, I cut up some apples sprinkled with cinnamon for him and as I was doing so, was inspired to make an apple cinnamon smoothie. Simple, satisfying, and a great way to get the health benefits of cinnamon!

How is your day going?  Hope you’re having a good one!

  2. Place all ingredients into blender
  3. Blend on medium-high for 1-2 minutes
