A delectable apple cinnamon smoothie made with tart apples, creamy coconut milk and a touch of honey is a great way to start your day!
Most smoothies are made with bananas and berries, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But there are plenty of other fruits that make a delicious healthy smoothie, and one of my favorites is apples, specifically tart Granny Smith apples with the skin still on. That’s where the nutrients are after all. You can peel the apples if you want, or if your blender can’t handle them, but I never peel apples for any reason.
This one combines apples, almond butter, cinnamon, and honey with some spinach and coconut milk for super yummy, sweet-tart smoothies that will keep you going for hours at a time. For a breakfast that takes literal minutes to make, that’s pretty impressive. Most of the time, you see lots of recipes for juicing apples, which removes all the fiber, but this way, you get everything in a filling and easy to make drink. Is there anything better?
To keep this extra cold, I used a few ice cubes, but also frozen spinach. You can use the kind that comes in the freezer aisle if you want (just make sure it’s only spinach!) but I like to take a big container of baby spinach and transfer it to a freezer bag and freeze. This doesn’t work well for things like salads, but it’s perfect for smoothies. This way, I always have it on hand so I don’t have to think about what I’m going to eat for breakfast.
For a creamier, more mild smoothie, you can swap a ripened pear for the apple, or even split it up. Pears are also perfect with cinnamon and honey so that works equally well.
