Golden milk apple smoothies are the new super smoothie! This smoothie is full of fantastic ingredients that are good for you too!
Before I start this post, I have to ask – have y’all been watching West World? It’s so good!! It’s my new favorite show this season and would highly recommend watching it. Just a heads up that it’s an HBO show though so it’s not exactly kid friendly if you know what I mean.
Anywho – let’s talk about golden milk apple pie smoothies!
For the past few months, I’ve noticed the growing trend of golden milk. I’ve seen a few other bloggers post various recipes for the drink and wanted to know more. So what is it exactly? Basically, golden milk is any sort of milk plus a handful of spices and a touch of sweetener. The reason golden milk is so highly touted is due to the turmeric. Apparently, turmeric has enormous health benefits (not an expert on that) and golden milk is just one of the ways to indulge in this super-spice.
But, I didn’t want to just make another golden milk recipe. Honestly, it seems like there are only so many ways to make it. Since it also happens to be apple season and the spices in golden milk pair well with apples, I naturally thought of pie. And voila! This golden milk apple pie smoothie was born.
Smoothies are a go-to breakfast or snack option for me so I love to switch up the recipe I use for my smoothie. This golden milk apple pie smoothie is a great solution for me right now because it’s so seasonal. I’ll take anything that makes it feel more like fall!
