Apple Pie Smoothie

If you are an apple pie lover, you will love this smoothie! Even if you are not an apple pie lover you will love this smoothie. ūüôā Unlike apple pie this smoothie is wheat and gluten-free, dairy-free and has no added refined sugar. ¬†So if you’re like me, who is extremely sensitive to gluten, you can truly enjoy this dessert without the stomach bloating, pain, or heart palpitations after. ¬†When you can enjoy a dessert and not suffer after, that is truly having your cake and eating it too!

 

Medjool Dates

 

Do you ever get those sweet tooth cravings where you just HAVE to have something sweet? I know I do. ¬†This is the perfect dessert smoothie to satisfy it. ¬†It really tastes like apple pie in a glass! With the comforting aromas of the nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves it makes me feel like I’m about to dig into a ¬†warm pie. ¬†The dates add that delicious sweetness and the pink lady apple gives it that perfect apple touch. ¬†If you have never tried a pink lady apple, it is the sweetest apple ever. ¬†It tastes like a jolly rancher it’s so sweet. ¬†It literally is better than any candy. ¬†You really must try one!

 

Apples

 

Recently I found out that¬†there are over 7,000 varieties of apples. Wow! That’s an incredible variety. ¬†Each has its own unique smell, color, taste, and texture. That’s interesting to me because I hear people say that the raw food diet sounds boring! But when you think of all the endless varieties of fruits and vegetables in the world you can go for weeks without ever eating the same meal twice. ¬†And it’s so much fun trying new fruit. ¬†That is not boring at all!

 

Apple Pie Smoothie

 

This smoothie is made with only the healthiest of ingredients that¬†nourish and feed your beautiful body, so don’t be afraid to indulge yourself in this delightful treat. ¬†I don’t know about you but I LOVE to eat! ¬†I am half Italian and married to an Italian and trust me Italians love them some food, and that is why I love the raw food diet. ¬†It truly is¬†a diet for those who love to eat. ¬†There is no carb counting or calorie counting, it’s an unlimited buffet of delicious fresh, ripe, organic fruits and vegetables. ¬†So drink up!

    I am sitting here enjoying this apple pie smoothie! (For breakfast) It is the best! I am getting over a bad cold/flu and used your redpepper and ginger smoothie and it was great! I could really feel an energy boost! Thanks for posting your recipes I appreciate them. (Not a raw foodie yet, though I am incorporating more raw foods in my diet.)

    I was going to get walnuts tonight but grabbed cashews instead. Now I’m regretting it. Will it be the same with either cashews or/and almonds? That’s just what I currently have on hand. Thanks.

      To be honest the walnuts really make it, I have never tried it with cashews or almonds. I’m sure it will still be good but I think it really is best with walnuts or maybe even pecans would be really good too.:)
