On weekday mornings, my mom leaves for work around 7:50 or 8 in the morning, but I don’t leave for class until around 8:45, so I usually opt to help her get ready in the morning by making a delicious breakfast to help her get through the school day with those oh so lovely high school students. It’s usually either a jar or overnight oats or a big ‘ole green smoothie because these are easily taken to be eaten at school. The smoothies are a popular choice, especially since we ordered those fancy jar lids with the straws! Like anyone, she has her favorite smoothie flavors: pineapple mango and chocolate cherry, but really who doesn’t love those flavors? This morning, however, I decided to make her an apple pie smoothie because, well, we still have a butt load of apples in the fridge. I’ve been a baking fool lately and we still have a fridge full of apples!
I stole a little sip of this one before popping a lid on it and oh my…. it was so delicious I would’ve made one for myself if I hadn’t already started making my oatmeal! I even got a text after my first class saying it was delicious! It was like having dessert for breakfast, which is definitely necessary when sending someone off to high school for the day 😛 I hadn’t had my first slice of apple pie until a couple months ago and this tastes just like that pie in liquid form. I definitely see many more of these smoothies in our future! Maybe even for dessert next time.
