Apple Ginger Spice Smoothie

Oh my gosh, YUM!!! Seriously YUM!!!! This smoothie was such a tasty treat after my workout this morning. It encompasses all the flavors of fall - apples, cinnamon and ginger - it tastes like pie! Only it's full of nutrients, vitamins and!!!

Raw ginger can be very potent, so do not overdue it. I used a 1/4 inch chunk (just cut off the brown hard skin).  Start with this small amount and if you feel like you want more, then add a little more to your taste. Some people really enjoy that distinctive ginger spicy-ness. I prefer a subtler hint.

This makes one giant smoothie or two nice sized smoothies, if you want to share!

  • 2 medium sweet apples, cored and chopped (do not peel off the skin)
  • 1/4 inch chunk of raw ginger root, cut off the outer skin
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened lite coconut milk in a can
  • 1 to 2 handfuls of raw spinach
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Place all ingredients into a high power blender and secure lid. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
