Spiced Apple Cider Smoothie Recipe by Green Blender

Spiced Apple Cider

Ingredients

  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 fuji apple - chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon/nutmeg/ginger blend
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Fall is in the air, and what better way to kick it off than with a seasonal smoothie? As the temperature drops, adding in warm foods and beverages can help your digestion adjust accordingly; cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are three superfoods that do the trick. Apple cider vinegar is a great boost to both digestion + metabolism. Enjoy this slightly sweet treat as an afternoon snack in lieu of relying on carbs or caffeine to power you through.

If you love apples, try the Apple Pie or the Apple Pineapple Express smoothies.
