Apple Pie Smoothie


apple pie smoothie

Have you seen the show The Revolution?  It is a new day time talk show that is all about empowering people to make big changes in their life.  Mainly they talk about getting healthy and fit, but it is about mental health, physical health, feeling good about yourself, etc.  I work from home, and I can’t sit in silence.  So, about once a week I see have this on in the background.

A couple weeks ago, they were sharing some smoothie recipes.  This one really caught my eye, and I knew I had to try it.  It was just 4 ingredients, and I had everything in my house already.  It is amazing.  It is sweet and cinnamon-y, just like apple pie, but without the crust!  Plus it is super good for you!  It has tons of protein and fiber, so you stay full until lunch time.

I do recommend you use a blender for this, it isn’t all that great chunky.  My food processor didn’t do a great job of getting it smooth.  In the end,  I had to break out the immersion blender.

  1. I adore a great smoothie, to start the day!! And one that bares any similarity to dessert, while still being healthy – – sign me up ;)

  2. I had an apple pie milkshake once and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever drank (drunk?) LOL. I like this smoothie version!

  3. Great Smoothie…very refreshing especially in the morning!

  4. What a great smoothie! This is a healthier way to get that taste of apple pie than what I usually do (eat a slice for breakfast :) ).

  5. I love smoothies. Especially in the summertime. And all of these super healthy ingredients make this one pie I won’t ever feel bad about! I bet a banana cream pie smoothie or a peach pie smoothie would be fabulous ;)

  6. Uh … major yum :)

  7. Oh mmmmm pass me a cup? I LOVE apples so this has to be good.

  8. You are a freaking genius, putting an apple pie into smoothie form. Would it be wrong if I had this before my workout?

  9. What a great drink to start the day! Sounds delish Erin!

  10. Ooo, this sounds wonderful, Erin. I love smoothies and I definitely love things made with Greek yogurt!

  11. Yum! This sounds amazing! I have to try this smoothie!!

  12. I wonder if I print this recipe and stick it to the fridge hubby would have the smoothie ready for me when I get back from my jog.
    I’ll have to test it next week when we get back home . Sounds like a great energy booster!

  13. This sounds amazing! I agree, chunky smoothies = no good :P

  16. Oh my gosh- yum! This smoothie looks and sounds so yummy.

  17. Oh.. yeah… I’m sooooo doing this!! I think it’s way better than an apple pie.. it’s pretty healthy with the fresh apple and Greek Yogurt! Great recipe!

  18. I’ll have to check out The Revolution – I’m usually working at home during the day, but the TV is in the other room (probably a good thing). A smoothie that tastes like apple pie – I’m in :) Don’t you love your immersion blender? Have a great weekend, Erin!

  19. I tried making an apple smoothie once and I didn’t like it! I think it was the peel. But, I would totally peel the apple and try this recipe! :)

  20. I adore a great smoothie and this is going on my list of ones to make!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  21. I have not seen that show, but I do love a good smoothie…looks delightful!

  22. I would love to drink my apple pie!!

  23. My favorite pie of all… apple pie gets smoothie form? Wow, got to try this!

  24. Perfect for fall! Used your recipe as a starting point and tweaked it a tiny bit. Tasted yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  25. I was disappointed with this smoothie :( It was really gritty because of the apples and the overall taste was not good. The recipe called for too much cinnamon, and it was just hard to get down. I won’t be making this again.

    • I am sorry the recipe didn’t work out for you. We like the flavor of cinnamon, so the more the better for us.
