First of all, I want to wish you a safe, happy, and healthy Labor Day!!
Even though we are closing out on summer, we don't have to forget about a favorite healthy meal/snack option.
Smoothies are often forgotten about during the colder months. Your body usually begins to crave those warm, grounding foods such as soups, stews, and root vegetables. This can often mean putting off your green smoothies until the weather warms up again, but you don’t have to! You can still enjoy the fall flavors in your green smoothie as a quick breakfast or a filling snack.
Get ready to make these fall-style smoothies that pack in the nutrients perfect for starting your day off on the right foot or curbing cravings during snack time.
1. Apple Pie Smoothie
Heat things up with this soothing smoothie that you blend first and then warm in the microwave. It tastes just like apple pie! All you need to do is blend an apple, vanilla extract, a tad of pure maple syrup, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Use a half-cup of water or make it richer with oat milk. Good for you, and satisfies that urge for warm apple pie!
2. Green Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
It’s green in color, but don’t let that put you off. You have a liquid form of what tastes precisely like Mom’s pumpkin pie. Add a quarter cup of real pumpkin puree with organic spinach, light coconut milk, a couple of tablespoons of vanilla-flavored whey protein powder, and pumpkin pie spice to taste.
3. Green Apple Holiday Smoothie
If you love the taste of apples, this green apple smoothie that evokes the feel of an autumn breeze is totally for you. You’ll need half a banana, a couple of cups of kale, apple cider (the real deal, not that sugary stuff), and a cup of water. You can also use ice to make it more slushie-like. Add a dash of cinnamon, and you’re all set.
4. Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
For those that can’t resist the dessert table at this time of year, this chocolate peanut butter smoothie has you covered. It has all those divine tastes and the texture of a thick milkshake with no guilt on the side for you! All you need to do is blend a few tablespoons of rolled oats in your blender until they turn into a fine powder. Then blend that with Chobani Greek yogurt, almond milk, ice, peanut butter powder, and cacao powder. Top it off with a few mini dark chocolate chips and voila! You have a satisfying and sweet treat that won’t leave you with a load of sugar to deal with.
5. Hearty Apple Cobbler Smoothie
Here’s one more apple smoothie that literally tastes like an apple cobbler with the crumble-like texture thanks to ground rolled oats. You’ll blend a couple of tablespoons of those first, then add in your apple, banana, a half-cup of almond milk, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Who said being healthy didn’t have to taste good? Whoever it was never had one of these fall-style smoothies to balance their health and indulge in full-on flavor.
