caramel apple smoothie

My love for caramel apples knows no bounds so of course I’ll come up with the breakfast-friendly version! Made with nothing but fruit and seeds for protein, and topped with nuts for a little healthy fat, it’s worthy of both breakfast and dessert title.

Caramel Apple Smoothie - Vegan
A caramel apple that you can enjoy for breakfast! Made from whole foods with no added sugar but don't let that stop you from enjoying it for dessert too!
