Who doesn’t love the delicious flavor of caramel apples?
But who also doesn’t love the sugar crash (and sticky fingers) that follows eating them?
If you enjoy the taste of caramel, this is a green smoothie you’re definitely going to want to try. It’s just sweet enough to satisfy your tastebuds, without the post-sugar blues that come after eating too-sweet treats.
Because the truth is, we’ve been conditioned to think that in order for a food to be a “treat,” it has to contain lots of refined sugar. That’s just wrong.

- The Healthy Gut Smoothie (Carrot Cake)
- 4-Ingredient Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups

In fact, you can indulge without gaining weight or having the up-and-down energy swings that can come from taking in too much sugar. Not only that, you get the bonus of feeling energized from you what you eat.
And adding meals like this spinach and apple smoothie to your diet is a great way to start. (Head here for even more nutrient-dense smoothie add-in ideas)
