Fresh Apple Pie Smoothie

This apple pie smoothie tastes like autumn in a glass!

Do you say autumn or do you say fall???

Inspired a few weeks ago by these seasonal fruit smoothies, I decided to create my own fall inspired smoothie with 5 simple ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right this instant: fresh apples {of course!}, oats {certified gluten-free for me}, milk {dairy or non-dairy…your choice!}, maple sugar {or any natural sweetener will do}, and, naturally, a little spice {cinnamon}.

This may be obvious, but use the freshest, sweetest, in-season apple possible.  I made this both with a “so-so” apple and a fresh, sweet honeycrisp apple {my favorite}, and the taste difference between both was amazing.  The honeycrisp version won, hands down!

If you are wondering if this is a super healthy smoothie, in addition to being delicious, it is!  Here’s the nutrition scoop…

  • At 8 grams of fiber/large serving, this smoothie will keep your tummy full and your blood sugar level stable {aka keep you happy :-)} until your next meal.
  • Apples, especially with the skin on, are a good source of the flavonoid quercetin, which acts as a natural anti-inflammatory, and provides protection against certain types of cancers, as well as heart disease.  Yes, it’s true…An apple a day, may indeed keep the doctor away!
  • Gluten-free {as long as certified gluten-free oats are used} and vegetarian.  Using almond, soy, coconut, or other non-dairy milk makes a nice vegan version as well.

    1. Hi Casey. You can find maple sugar is specialty grocery store, such as Whole Foods. Here in San Diego, I found it at Jimbo’s {a local store} You can definitely add regular sugar too, or, even better, pure maple syrup. Enjoy 🙂

  1. I have a friend who adores Honey Crisp apples. She would agree that they would be perfect in this smoothie. I’ll have to get out my Magic Bullet and get back into smoothie making and pick up some Honey Crisp.

  2. Ha, ha! They say the straws make the smoothie…or, do they? 🙂 I’m curious to know how it turns out in a less powerful blender, and yes, I agree with you about fall vs autumn. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks Erin! One option would be to simply omit the oats. I added them for fiber/to make the smoothie more filling, but they don’t add much in the way of taste. If you do want to add some additional fiber,you could try ground flaxmeal, chia seeds, or even millet or quinoa, both of which I have added {cooked} to smoothies before. Enjoy!

  3. I love this!! Definitely getting the ingredients to put this together.
    I usually say fall, but it is hard to say either one since the weather here in Vegas doesn’t normally show signs of autumn/fall. That is one thing I don’t love about living here.

    1. I know what you mean! Unless I head up to Julian later in the fall/autumn, there’s not much “typical fall” weather here either, but I can’t complain too much about the weather 🙂

  4. I am loving this! I drink so many smoothies in spring/summer but tend to drink less once the temperatures cool off, so I’d love to get in the habit of making more seasonal ones in the fall/winter that still keep my interest. this one looks amazing, EA!
