Apple Pie. Perfect for July 4th, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas…Valentine’s Day…halloween…apple pie is always a good option! This always-appropriate Apple Pie smoothie is just SO good!

Here’s why you’ll love it:

  • It is a guilt-free treat! The sweetness comes from the natural fruit and maple syrup which is optional. 
  • It really tastes like apple pie! Thanks to the oatmeal, this tastes just like the well-loved, classic dessert!
  • It’s loaded with goodness! Apples are high on vitamin C, potassium, and Vitamin K; oatmeal provides extra fiber and energy, protein fills you up and keeps you feeling full. Cinnamon – helps control blood sugar levels and may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

What ingredients are in this Apple Pie Smoothie?

  • Apples: 2 whole apples are in this recipe. 
  • Oats: gluten-free oats, uncooked.
  • Protein powder: you can use unflavored & unsweetened, or vanilla protein powder. Check the carbs to keep it low! I use this one (less sweet) and this one (sweeter).
  • Cinnamon: This spice is a must in any good apple pie!
  • Unsweetened almond or oat milk: The almond milk will have fewer carbs. I’ve made it both ways – both are great!
  • Maple syrup: optional, possibly a good idea if you’re using unsweetened protein powder, but feel free to skip it.
  • Toasted pecans: optional garnish, but SUCH a good idea if you have some in your pantry.

How do I make this Apple Pie Smoothie?

  • Pop everything into the blender.
  • Blend it for 1-2 minutes until everything is well blended.
  • Let it sit for a minute, to make sure the oatmeal is nice and soft before drinking.
  • Garnish with extra cinnamon, apple chunks, and toasted pecans, if desired.

  • Gala
  • Golden Delicious
  • Pink Lady
  • McIntosh
  • Roma
  • Honeycrisp
  • Ambrosia
  • Red Delicious
  • If you prefer a bit of tartness, Granny Smith is a great option!
