Is fall your favorite season? Sweater weather is here and so are fall flavors, including lots of pumpkin- and apple-inspired dishes. Something about fall puts you in a better, more optimistic mood. There is something special about those crisp mornings and the ability to start enjoying hotter food. But colder weather doesn’t mean that you have to completely forget about smoothies, especially when they taste as good as this fall-inspired creation.
This smoothie does call for a few more ingredients than your average blended creation, but it’s because it is a fall creation.
