Easy and delicious apple pie smoothie with greek yogurt, frozen bananas, and rolled oats. A healthy smoothie that tastes just like apple pie.
This healthy apple pie smoothie tastes like dessert and is full of nutritious ingredients.
Now that it’s October, I’m loving making all of my smoothies fall themed.
I love making things that taste like fall in a glass but are also good for me!
This paired with a cinnamon apple muffin? Yes please.
One of my favorite fall desserts is vegan apple crisp. I made this smoothie to taste like an apple pie treat for when I wake up craving something sweet.
ingredients to make an apple pie smoothie
- apples: any variety
- frozen bananas
- plain greek yogurt
- ice: optional, but recommended to get that thick creamy consistency
- gluten free rolled oats
- creamy almond butter
- milk: any kind you have: 2%, whole, almond milk, soy milk, cashew milk etc
How to make a healthy apple smoothie
Step 1: add your milk to the bottom of a high speed blender.
Adding the milk first will help the blender blend the difficult ingredients more easily.
Step 2: Core the apples and place them in the blender. Add the frozen bananas, greek yogurt, cinnamon, honey, rolled oats, and almond butter to the blender.
Step 3: Place the lid on the blender and blend until thick and creamy. The combination of frozen bananas (for creaminess) and ice (for thickness) is so delicious in this apple pie smoothie.
I love the slight nuttiness that the almond butter gives, and it really pulls all the flavors together to taste like fall in a glass.
I personally prefer my smoothies to have that super thick ice cream like texture: they taste so much better that way!
This creamy sweet smoothie is packed full of protein, naturally sweetened, and tastes like a slice of homemade apple pie.
Quick tip for freezing bananas
I use frozen bananas in a lot of my smoothie recipes to get that super thick ice cream like creaminess.
Once a bunch of bananas is very ripe, simply peel and break them into chunks. Place them in a freezer safe ziploc bag in the freezer until ready to use.
I find this much easier than freezing bananas whole, as the chunks are easier on a blender. Alternatively, you can slice the bananas and freeze that way.
I always have frozen bananas on hand! I use them in lots of smoothie recipes to get that yummy creaminess.
