I've been buying apples this year from a local produce market down the road from my house. I must say, I love doing this so much more than buying apples from the grocery store for a few reasons.
I've gotten to know the owners and they share information about the apples or upcoming produce that they'll be selling. Pears are coming up and I am !!!!!! about that.
I get to support a small local company which as a yoga teacher and business owner (that's weird/amazing to say) is so important to me because I am grateful when others do the same!
And I get amazing quality produce. The apples I got are huge and delicious. I love it.
As you can tell, I'm excited about the apples in my life and when I'm excited about something I'm all in. I tend to "accidentally" buy too much of it or get way over the top obsessed with it. In this case, I bought tons of apples. A good problem to have, I must say.
Now that it's officially fall, I'm over my morning oatmeal and back on the smoothie train in the typical backwards fashion that I am. I figured that I need some way to use these apples in a fun way. That's where these apple pops come in.
Sure, you can make slice up the apples, dip them in chocolate, top 'em with caramel and other fun toppings and just eat them like that. But putting them on a stick just amps up the excitement factor. What's more fun than eating a sweet chocolatey apple on a stick? I really can't think of too many things!
So grab your sticks, go on the hunt for some of your favorite apples, and let's make some apple pops!Read More
