4th of July Smoothie

4th of July SmoothieCelebrate this national holiday with a festive and healthy red, white, and blue smoothie.

For those of you who don’t live in the United States, make this smoothie because it’s nutritious and delicious :)

One thing I always notice at holiday gatherings is a smattering of unhealthy food. Don’t get me wrong, indulging once in a while keeps you sane, and the 90/10 diet, or eating healthy 90% of the time resonates with me. However, some holiday food spreads are just plain ridiculous.

Why not bring something healthy to the table? This fruit smoothie is perfect as a tasty snack or dessert. You can even freeze it and serve as ice cream.

Apple Pie Smoothie

Apple Pie Smoothie

Why not drink your pie :)

Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts. Although it often leaves me feeling guilty after eating because I know it’s not that healthy.

This smoothie solves that problem. Think of drinking a delicious slice (or two) of apple pie that’s loaded with good nutrition leaving you feeling good about yourself after consuming.

That’s the beauty of many smoothie recipes, you can transform an otherwise unhealthy food into something that’s highly nutritious and tastes just as good, if not better.

There’s obviously apple in this recipe, and we all know an apple a day keeps the doctor away; so I’m going to focus on the health benefits of each of the three spices this recipe calls for.
