You don’t like pumpkin spice? I *guess* you can use those words together. How about some lovely fall apples then? Roasting them brings out extra natural sweetness, so you don’t even have to think about adding sweetener!
Jen’s Roasted Apple Spice Smoothie
4 apples (I’m using honeycrisp)
1 teaspoon apple pie spice (or whatever pie spice or cinnamon)
Sprinkle and roast at 400 degrees F til fragrant and soft, about 45 minutes. Let cool completely. Toss in the fridge or freezer if you want to speed things up.
Add to your blender:
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (I’ve got Chobani)
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
those glorious roasted apples
Blend til awesome. Serves 2-4, depending on your tribe’s fall mood…

My favorite knife. It’s a 7″ full tang Santoku. I chose the Ikon handle design, which is wonderfully ergonomic. I have spent hours on a produce sculpture before and my hand was just as comfy at the end. It’s worth the pennies.
My favorite non-stick skillet.
My favorite cast iron skillet is a 12″ Lodge dual handle pan. Why, the long handles are too heavy to hold with a single hand when they’re loaded up. Since you’re using two hands anyway, you might as well get the ones that take up less space and stack so much better!
I get asked about my spice wall all the time. The magnetic tins on the wall are great for any spices or salt-free blends. Salt corrodes the tins, so anything with salt is in a glass jar on the counter underneath.
