by | Updated: December 3rd, 2016 | Read time: 2 minutes

Small fall confession: I’m not a big fan of pumpkin. But bring on the apples! Cobbler, crumbles, pie, donuts—that fresh apple flavor, spiked with cinnamon, wrapped into a warm, baked treat? I’d eat an apple dessert every day if I could. That’s why I keep these healthy smoothies in rotation through the autumn season. They capture the tempting taste of my favorite treats, without all the sugar, fat or guilt.
