The Apple Pie Smoothie!
Tastes just like apple pie a la mode, but much healthier for you!
Last weekend we extended our Big E vacation to include apple picking (along with the rest of Massachusetts, the place was packed!)! But not to worry, the trees were dripping with sweet, ripe fruit! Varieties of apples I have never even heard of before! One of our new favorites was called the “Liberty” apple, super crisp, slightly sweet and a little tangy!
After a day of walking through the orchards, visiting farm animals and going on hay rides we got back in our car with loads of apples!
So, guess what’s in store for you?
