This tart, but sweet, cinnamon smoothie is reminiscent of an apple pie. (A much healthier apple pie) This smoothie is quick and easy to make and will fill you up thanks to the fiber and protein. This smoothie includes maple extract which should not be confused with maple syrup. It also includes hazelnut extract. You can find maple and hazelnut extract in the seasonings and spices section of your grocery store over by the vanilla extract.
