Carrot Apple Delight Smoothie

Apples and bananas are two popular fruits. Add carrots to the mix and you have a delightful combo!  In this smoothie, Granny Smith Apples are used for a sour twist. It starts off with Cashew Milk as the base which adds healthy fat and protein. If you are feeling daring add a half of an avocado for extra nutrition. I’ve added fresh orange juice to this mix and rotate between using pumpkin spice and cinnamon for a change of flavor.
