I love to eat and drink fall’s beautiful and nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables! This delicious seasonal smoothie is bursting with beta-carotene and other important antioxidants like quercitin found in apples. This smoothie tastes great cool or even warmed up for a treat (omit the ice and warm almond milk before adding to blender if making into a hot beverage).
