Apple Cinnamon Smoothie

One of the best things about my job is that I get to review some pretty awesome cookbooks.  This Apple Cinnamon Delight recipe comes from Emily Von Euw’s latest cookbook, 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy SnacksI am already a fan of her blog, and I own her first cookbook, Rawsome Vegan Baking as well.  If you are looking for a great way to start off the new year healthier, I highly recommend this book.  I have to admit, sometimes I get in a smoothie/juice rut and lack the inspiration for new recipes.  That is what makes 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks so great.  You will never get bored.

There are tons of great recipes! Emily was kind enough to let me share a recipe from the book with you.  I chose the Apple Cinnamon Delight because it’s perfect for this time of year.
