I have one word for this Easy Apple Pie Smoothie recipe… “Yum!”

My husband’s comment the first time I made this was, with a huge smile, “All that’s missing is the crust!”

And I might add — warm, melting ice cream.

But… we’ve added vanilla, plus all the flavors you love in apple pie, so… you’re missing nothing here!

This Apple Pie Smoothie is so good, I can’t stop making it… over and over again. It’s perfect for the season, a no-guilt treat that’s just really, really delicious.

What is better? A whole apple or apple sauce?

I did. I tested two different ways to make an Apple Pie Smoothie. First using a whole apple, the second was swapping the apple for applesauce.

Here’s what I found.

My blender isn’t super powerful and I wasn’t sure how “smooth” my smoothie would be using a chopped, whole apple. But guess what?! Even with a less powerful blender, it worked like a charm.

Here’s the verdict.

In test number 1, I used a whole, unpeeled but cored apple. In test number 2, the ingredients remained the same except I swapped the whole apple for 1 cup of applesauce.

Bottomline. The whole apple makes the smoothie taste like apple pie. The applesauce is good, but changes the flavor quite a bit. 

In essence, it tastes like applesauce.

Both ways are delicious and if you don’t have an apple, applesauce works too. 

But oh my, I LOVE the whole apple!

Apple Pie Smoothie Ingredients in a Glass Blender

Ingredients

You’ll need one large apple, cored but with the peeling left on. To the blender add 3/4 cup of ice, 1/2 cup of milk (your choice of milk), 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, pinch of cardamom although nutmeg works too, and a tablespoon of maple syrup. That’s it!

Can I add protein to this smoothie?

It’s so simple to add protein to this Apple Pie Smoothie. In addition to the ingredients listed above, including the already protein-rich Greek Yogurt, add 1/3 cup protein powder. I like Naked Nutrition Whey Protein powder available at Amazon and other retailers.

You can use these same directions to add extra protein to my Healthy Oatmeal Smoothie, and my Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, too!
