Pumpkins, apples and aromatic vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg, speak of falling leaves and cooler temperatures. The flavors of fall bring autumn to the table and even a cold smoothie provides a sense of comfort and warmth. To impart sweetness in this Fall Flavors Smoothie recipe, use a naturally sweet apple such as organic Honeycrisp. Whole nutmeg and ginger work best in this recipe but you can substitute with ground spices. Grass-fed collagen provides some protein but to make this smoothie a more complete meal, add a couple of eggs, a lunchmeat roll-up or any other type of additional protein on the side.
