Apple-Pie-Smoothie-3

HELLOOOOOOOO FALL!

Yes, it’s actually FINALLY Fall – but LA still thinks it’s Summer! Come oooooooooooon. I’m so ready.

I’m dying for those fall flavors, cozy sweaters, and yep… Apple pie.

Since it’s not quite time for apple picking, and it’s still close to 90 degrees where I live, I thought I would create the illusion of an apple pie through this Apple Pie Smoothie.

GENIUS, I know.

Apple-Pie-Smoothie-5

You guys. YOU GUYS. It tastes JUST LIKE an apple pie. It’s weeeeeird. And I’m totally into it.

I dare you to try it. It’s AWESOME. (Sorry for all the CAPS) Now you can have all the flavors of apple pie, without all the guilt!
