Spicy Cinnamon Apple Smoothie

Spicy Cinnamon Apple Smoothie

Breakfast Week… Wraps Up! It’s the last recipe of Breakfast Week for our 4 Week Fall Recipe Series. Don’t worry… I have more recipes coming up! Next week we kick off… Lunch Week! Today I am sharing how to make a Spicy Cinnamon Apple Smoothie that really does taste like Fall in a glass. Anything apple, cinnamon and nutmeg reminds me of fall! I do recommend using a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix to make this recipe, being that you’ll be blending a whole apple (cored and sliced). Without a high-speed blender your smoothie will be thick and a little chunky… almost like apple sauce! Which is still…. delicious!

Health Benefits! 

  • Apples are rich in the immune boosting antioxidant Vitamin C, as well as Pectin, a type of soluble fiber, which can help lower cholesterol levels and support heart health! 
  • Cinnamon has been known to help manage blood sugar levels
  • Dates are rich in minerals, such as iron, which support bone health and can help those who suffer from anemia
  • Dates, which naturally contain sugar, are a great caffeine-free energy booster
  • Chia seeds provide protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids to this smoothie!
  • Coconut water naturally contains vitamins, minerals and electrolytes such as potassium. Add coconut water to a post Barre3 class smoothie is a great way to hydrate and replenish. One of the reasons I like Vita Coco coconut water is because it is not made from concentrate and is packed within 72 hours from being picked
  • Almond milk adds a creamy decadent texture to this seasonal spicy smoothie

This Recipe Is:

  • Vegan
  • Plant-based
  • Gluten-Free
  • Dairy-Free
  • Delicious!
