A Snickerdoodle Smoothie!

At first glance, it may not look like much until you see its inner cookie.  Y'all -- it tastes like a SNICKERDOODLE!  This surprise was completely serendipitous, as I continue to experiment with my favorites.

Here's the Recipe:

Snickerdoodle Smoothie

1 granny smith apple
1 large yellow carrot
1 large rib celery
1 Tbsp coconut milk
1 Tbsp. almond butter
raisins to taste -- I used about 7 or 8
nutmeg to taste
cinnamon to taste
dry ginger to taste
fresh black pepper to taste
a few cubes of ice
2 cups of water

Blend in a Vitamix until smooth.  Makes 3 cups

The apple lends a little sweetness, but most of the sweet comes from the raisins.  It would be easy to overdo this sweetness, so start with just a few raisins.  It's so surprising how these veggies, with the right fats and spices, taste like my favorite cookie!

Smoothies started out being a way to digest more vegetables and fruits, but they are getting so good now that I'm always looking forward to the next one.
