It’s nearly back-to-school time and that means the swift transition into fall weather, fall clothes and of course – fall foods! We are celebrating a fall favorite of ours a few weeks before the leaves begin to change colors just because these recipes are so tasty!
This lovely bright green smoothie is super nutritious thanks to the Granny Smith apple and kale. It’s also super sweet tasting without any refined sugar. Tastes good and it’s good for you? Now that’s a win-win! And, did we mention it is the perfect recipe for your mid-morning snack or post-workout treat! Throw a banana in the freezer the night before for a dreamy cool breakfast treat.
- ¾ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 Granny Smith Apple, cored and quartered (unpeeled)
- 2 Large Kale Leaves, stems removed
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 3-4 Shakes of Cinnamon
- Garnish with Fresh Pomegranate Seeds
- In a powerful blender combine almond milk, banana, apple, kale, and a few shakes of cinnamon.
- Blend at high speed until super smooth.
- Pour into glasses and garnish with pomegranate seeds.
Okay, so this one may not be quite as healthy as the last Kale Smoothie recipe… But it’s all about moderation and everyone needs a little dessert in their life! Here is our own personal version of the Granny Smith Snicker Salad. Try it out for your fall get-togethers and enjoy the slight crunch from the juicy Granny Smith Apples!
- 6 Snickers Candy Bars
- 4 Granny Smith Apples
- 16 Oz. Cool Whip Tub
- ½ Cup Milk
- 1 Packet Instant Pudding Mix
- Caramel Topping
- Add ½ cup milk, instant pudding mix and cool whip together in bowl then whisk until powder is combined.
- Core and dice apples into bite size pieces.
- Chop Snickers to the same size as apples pieces.
- Add apples and Snicker chunks to pudding mixture.
- Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Drizzle caramel topping and sprinkle remaining Snicker on top before serving.
This applesauce is made from whole Gala apples- skins and all! The skins add a nice texture and pretty deep amber color. Its flavor is inspired by the warm and creamy Chia drink and we think it will be perfect once the weather starts to cool off this fall.
- 1 Cup Apple Juice or Apple Cider
- 2 T. Maple Syrup
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. Ginger
- 1/8 tsp. Cardamom
- 1/8 tsp. Cloves
- Crème Fraiche, for garnish
- Place the quartered apples and 1 cup of apple juice to in a pot and simmer for 30 minutes with the lid on until the apple are soft and juicy.
- Frequently stir the apples to make sure they aren’t burning or sticking the bottom of the pan.
- Add the spices and continue to simmer the apples 30 more minutes until they are very soft.
- Puree in the pot with an immersion blender or in a food processor.
- Serve warm and garnish with a swirl of crème fraiche, maple syrup, and cinnamon.
We hope the rest of your summer is sensational and your transition into fall is a breeze! Enjoy these Apple-inspired recipes and happy baking, dessert making and smoothie-sipping!
