Personally, I’m a fan of apples that are sweet. Sour apples take me longer to eat, and mixing them with other non-sweet things, would take me forever to finish. But, I like to experiment with food and figure out combinations that work. So, the surprise in this bowl (to me) is it was delicious! My apple spinach smoothie is an enjoyable blend of healthy greens and the right apples.
