Apple Pick-Me-Up Smoothie

It’s smoothie season!  I absolutely love having smoothies for breakfast in the summer, or for any meal really.  I love that it’s so easy to make a filling and nutritious meal that tastes like dessert!  They even texturally feel like dessert without having the sugary gross feeling afterwards.

Today’s recipe is great for a morning smoothie because it uses espresso powder.  It’s a not particularly sweet smoothie (which is the way I like it) so feel free to add any sort of sweetener – agave nectar, dates, maple syrup, etc.

Don’t forget about the events coming up for Cupid’s Landing:

Sunday, July 17th – Garage sale to benefit Cupid’s Landing located at 151 S 60th St, Tacoma, WA 98408
