I’ve been wanting to try this apple pie smoothie for some time now but it wasn’t until this week that I took the plunge. The weather shifted to hinting of fall and suddenly I was ready for all things autumn! The great thing about this smoothie is that while it has obvious “dreaming of fall” flavor it is still a nice cool drink on a warm “still summer” day. So even if you are in the hotter regions and fall seems a long ways away, you can whip up this smoothie and imagine it’s a crisp fall day.

Much like my apple pie gelatin, this smoothie is full of fall flavors such as apple and cinnamon with just a dash of nutmeg. Mmmm  The apple pie smoothie starts out like your pretty standard smoothie recipe; milk, frozen banana… but things get crazy when you toss in an apple! I didn’t think the apple would get chopped into a smooth enough texture but it did! Granted, I’ve only tested this out in my Vitamix but I think any blender will do a good job.

I personally use cashew milk for this recipe but that’s simple because I’m on a cashew milk kick right now. I use cow’s milk or even kefir for my kiddos’ (note the kefir or yogurt would make this more of a tangy apple pie smoothie!) Use whatever milk you prefer.

In case you haven’t noticed, I also like to avoid sugar when possible, so in order to make this an apple pie smoothie (because pies are sweet!) I use stevia. I know not everyone loves stevia like I do so if you would rather, you can sub in honey instead.

If you are feeling really indulgent, you could even whip up a batch of my sugar free whipped cream and add a dollop onto of your smoothie! Apple pie smoothie ala mode…well sort of, I mean it’s not ice cream but whipped cream is pretty close!
