    Pop Quiz: What happens when tart raspberries get cozy with cinnamon-spiced applesauce? A vitamin-packed smoothie match made in heaven. After recently discovering Slow Cooker Applesauce, I am here to tell you: it is the bee’s knees.

    We love it warm, we love it cold and we love using it to naturally sweeten everything from oatmeal to waffles to, you guessed it, SMOOTHIES!

    No homemade applesauce? No problem – use store-bought. Just make sure it is unsweetened. Apples are already pretty sweet if you ask me. ;-) If you’re using store bought, be sure to spice up your smoothie with a little bit of cinnamon, nutmeg or even ground cloves. Antioxidants, baby! Don’t miss out.

    Speaking of antioxidants, have you heard the latest news about wheat germ’s health benefits? From Vitamin E to folic acid to zinc, it seems like a no brainer to me.

    Your straw is waiting.
