    I love these! I let the juice cool and stored it in my fridge. It was actually delicious on its own, but I used it as the liquid in a smoothie. Just added frozen banana and frozen kale to it.

    Delicious! I have made this recipe several times and it is always divine. I love the texture of the walnuts with the apple. And the spices add so much. I have tried it with a combination of apple and pear juice which is also lovely! This recipe is a keeper!
