I was standing in my kitchen doing my usual smoothie-for-the-next-day prep when I saw my overflowing basket of apples. Thoughts of apple pie followed. This smoothie is a bit sweeter than my usual combo and turned out delicious!

    Looks delish!! Could you sub hemp hearts for the vegan protein powder? I just can’t seem to find one that I like, so I generally use chia, flax, hemp or a nut butter to add protein. 🙂

      Yes, absolutely! The nut butter will change the flavor but it is usually still very yummy!
