Move Over, Pumpkin

We’re all probably up to our ears in pumpkin by now. So it’s time for a different fall fruit to take the spotlight (and, yes, pumpkins are actually fruits).

It’ll be love at first sip when you taste this flavorful Apple Pie Smoothie at Juice it Up! This better-for-you version of apple pie takes all the flavors you love and turns them into a frosty treat because – who are we kidding – California winters are still warm enough to warrant ice cream.

The Apple Pie Smoothie is a fresh take on the classic fall dessert and contains fresh red apples, banana, toasted salted cashews, cinnamon, apple juice blend, fresh lemon juice, and nonfat frozen yogurt for a boost of fiber and vitamin C that actual pies don’t usually have. This complex smoothie is a sweet treat with just a find of savory crust-like flavor.

Although it’s not calorie-free, this Apple Pie Smoothie is a treat you can feel good about. For an even healthier version ask to “Make it Green” and your barista will add a dose of raw kale and spinach. Or let it be in all its apple pie deliciousness.

If only all healthy things tasted this good.

Juice It Up! is located at 65 N. Hill Ave., Pasadena. Call (626) 793-3344 or visit www.juiceitup.com for more information.
