Article Excerpt:


This month's SOS Kitchen Challenge features the noble apple, one of my favorite fruits. After gazing upon the pile of apples sitting on my kitchen counter this morning, I was inspired to create a smoothie that tastes like apple pie. 

Now, it's been a long time since I've actually eaten apple pie, at least 3 years. No kidding. But this tastes like what I remember apple pie to be like - sweet, tart, cinnamony. And don't be alarmed by the vegetables hiding below the surface of this smoothie, they are barely noticeable.  It is perfect for breakfasts, snacks, or a healthful dessert.  And so easy to make! WAY easier to make than apple pie.

If you're feeling inspired by apples, you should participate in this month's SOS Kitchen Challenge! Be sure to check out the Linky showing all the submissions thus far at the bottom of this post, and enter yours before the end of the month.  My co-host Ricki (from Diet, Dessert, and Dogs) and I will post a recap at the end of the month to highlight all the great apple lovin' ideas.
