My go-to breakfast is always something carb-filled. I love bagels, waffles, pancakes, buttered toast, fruit on toast, breakfast sandwiches--basically anything that's loaded in carbs. Lately, I've been trying to change that unhealthy (but oh-so-tasty) habit by coming up with breakfast foods that are extremely delicious, but lack the carbs. One main way I've been succeeding at that goal is by getting creative with my smoothies! My newest creation, this Caramel Apple Smoothie, is probably my favorite smoothie I've ever made. It has all the wonderful flavors of a caramel apple packed into a smoothie! Yum!
Caramel Apple Smoothie
I'm a sucker for a caramel apple--every time I'm at a carnival or a fair, that's always my go-to dessert. So when I thought up this recipe late at night in bed (usually where all my recipe creations are dreamt up), I couldn't wait to wake up the next morning to get all of the ingredients in the blender!
I knew it was going to be good, but I didn't realize just how good it was going to be. I took one sip and my eyes opened wide! I couldn't believe I actually had to wait until after I took pictures until I could drink the rest--ahhhh the hard life of a food blogger 😉
The thing I love most about smoothies is that you get so much nutritional value, and you barely realize it! All of the nutrition is hiding in that scrumptious drink you're sipping.
In this smoothie, you get the nutritional value of 2 whole apples, Greek yogurt, and nuts! Isn't it amazing how much you can pack into one cup?
I know you're begging me to get to the recipe, so I'll get on with it now. Enjoy, readers!
