One of my favorite breakfast pastries is an apple strudel, which is tied with apple turnovers! They are one of my weaknesses. I wanted to make a breakfast shake that is inspired by these pastries and not other apple desserts and not like the shakes I make in the fall or winter. I wanted it simple and clean and just a tiny hint of cinnamon. This shake is pure sweetness.
