The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder…so we cooked up a healthy Fall ‘Caramel Apple Protein 3 Ways’ drink recipe to keep you super warm & cozy this week. Read on below. ☺️
Don’t get me wrong. I love Pumpkin Spice as much as the next gal…
But isn’t it time that the caramel apple flavor got a little bit of action this Fall??
I mean. What was better than taking that sticky plastic wrapper off of a glistening freshly dipped caramel apple?
The answer is nothing.
And I’m happy to say that after a little bit of trial and error, we actually captured all those cozy flavors in a healthy Caramel Apple smoothie that, unlike the real thing, won’t send your dental bill through the roof from all the sugar!
So without further ado, here is our tasty caramel apple drink recipe:
