Guiltless Apple Pie Smoothie

applepiesmoothie

Anyone in my family can tell you that once fall rolls around I go apple picking. Of course the only natural thing to do with a big bag of freshly picked apples is bake apple pie! Taking a sip of this apple pie smoothie is like putting a luscious piece of apple pie in your mouth. I couldn’t believe how much it tasted like apple pie or how delicious this is! This is very refreshing and my new favorite 🙂

Tips and tidbits:
* Want to reduce the calories? Change the almond milk to unsweetened almond milk. You can also trade the cottage cheese in for non-fat greek yogurt. Fage is my favorite brand.
