Ingredients

  • 2 C Apple Cider* (To make your own see note), 512g
  • 2 Tea Bags of Rooibos Tea
  • 1/2 C Pumpkin Puree' 130g
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Apple cored
  • 1/4 tsp + 1/8 Cinnamon ground
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions

  • Warm cider just to a boil. Remove from heat and add tea bags. Steep for 5-8 minutes. Discard the tea bags.
  • In a high speed blender, add the cider-tea mixture, pumpkin, banana, apple, cinnamon and vanilla. Blend starting on low speed, then increase to high speed for 30 seconds. Scrape down the blender. Blend again until smooth, about 20 more seconds. Taste to see if you prefer more cinnamon here. If so, add a 1/8 tsp more and blend for a few seconds. I added up to a total of 1/2 tsp.
  • Serve right away, or chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour if serving chilled. If serving warm, gently warm it on the stove just to steaming.
  • It's freshest served right away, but will keep in the fridge for at least two days.

Notes

*To steep your own apple cider, add 1 Tbs of mulling spices 2 C of apple juice. Bring apple juice just to under a boil. Steep with the tea.
If a thinner smoothie is what you prefer, add a few Tbs of apple cider to thin it further.
