This smoothie bowl’s the perfect blend of apples and spinach

Spinach apple smoothie

Personally, I’m a fan of apples that aren’t sour. Sour apples take me longer to eat, and mixing them with other unsweet things, would take me forever to finish. But, I like to experiment with food and figure out combinations that work. I made my first smoothie bowl in my new place and it turned out terribly. So I tried again, and it was an enjoyable blend of healthy greens and the right apples.

  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
