Apple Pie Smoothie
Updated: Oct 27, 2021
The calendar may say its fall, but we're entering "second summer" here in Texas. When I want to indulge in the warming flavors of fall without having to eat hot food - I reach for this smoothie. Its comforting, yet refreshing. And TWO of the three boys approved.
Apples and cardamom were made to be together. Cardamom comes in a relatively big pod that from India, Pakistan, Nepal, and China.
Cardamom pods contain many phytonutrients that have anti-inflammatory properties. Cardamom pods are also great at aiding digestion and supporting the digestive system and are often consumed as-is after a big meal. They are excellent sources of iron, manganese, and a good source of potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
