Fruit smoothie recipes can use any fruit , but apples are definitely a favorite; everyone loves apples! And, the great thing – besides all the fruit nutrition and vitamins and nutrients, apples are available all year long and make great smoothies! This is a basic Apple Smoothie that includes O.J. and maple syrup and makes a distinctive treat.
Its also easy to turn this Apple smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

– 1/2 cup of cold apple cider or apple juice
– 1/2 cup of cold orange juice
– 1 to 2 tablespoons of maple syrup for a sweet touch!
