Granny Smith Smoothie

You know what they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! Kick-start your morning with this tart Granny Smith Smoothie recipe and enjoy all of the healthy morning perks that come with it. In case you didn't know, apples boost intestinal health by increasing the number of good gut bacteria. By leaving the peel on the apple before blending, this smoothie gives a dose of ursolic acid. Naturally found in the apple peel, ursolic acid strengthens muscles and helps to prevent muscle wasting that can result from aging and illness. Don't forget you are also getting potassium, iron, and vitamin C from the other smoothie ingredients!
