Apple Smoothie

This Apple Smoothie has a few simple and unusual ingredients. In less than 10 minutes you’ll have an apple smoothie recipe healthy style that will keep you going for hours.

Blender smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get a delicious and healthy meal or snack any time of the day. This one can even be a power smoothie before or after your workout.

High protein ingredients

It has high protein ingredients (no protein powder included) that will help you feel full and energized for longer than the usual fruit smoothie.

One of the tricks is using a nut butter and this one incorporates peanut butter.

There are oats too and they also pack extra protein. Everything is blended together to a smooth consistency that you can eat wth a spoon or suck through a straw.

I usually prefer almond milk (more extra protein) but you can use any one of your favorite kinds of dairy-free milk. I mean we are talking healthy here!

If I was going to give a recipe rating for this cinnamon apple smoothie it would be a 5 star rating. You could even add ice cubes or a frozen banana and make yourself an apple cinnamon protein shake!

There’s a little bit of maple syrup too. You could leave it out but I love a lightly sweetened smoothie especially if the smoothie apple is tart like a Granny Smith.

There are a lot of apples to choose from in the stores so just use the one you like and/or have on hand.

If you have some other smoothie recipes, breakfast is a great way to use them. People are usually a bit tired in the morning and need something quick to get them going.

A fruit or green smoothie is the answer. It will perk you up!

How to make an apple smoothie

  • You don’t need to peel the apple. That option is completely up to you. The texture will be different if you don’t peel it but you will lose some nutrients and vitamins if you do.
  • Make sure to core it and remove all of the seeds. Kids may not like the consistency with the apple skins so peel the them if you have picky eaters.

Are apple smoothies good?

You’d better believe it. This recipe has so many goodies inside that it is actually really really good!

Are apple smoothies good for you?

Yes! You know the saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’. It’s probably not 100% true but apples are packed with vitamins and nutrients. They help to balance out your blood sugar and have fiber too. Especially the skin.

What apples are best for smoothies?

My first choices are Granny Smith, Gala, Golden delicious, and Fuji apples. All of these are sweet except the Granny Smith. I still prefer to add a tad maple syrup.

What are the health benefits of making apple smoothies with dairy free milk?

You’ll get about half the calories of milk and it will be creamier than if you use water. The different varieties will give different nutrients and vitamins but you’ll be sure to be getting healthier fats.

Do you know I have over 20 apple recipes on the blog? It’s so hard to choose which ones to show you but I’m going to give it a try.

Fantastic apple recipes

  • Apple Waffles fill the bill when you’re looking for a sweet breakfast. Grated apple is inside the batter.
  • There is hardly any prep work for Slow Cooker Apples and Oats and you will love this bowlful for breakfast or lunch.
  • Apple Pecan Salad with raisins is another meal that is great for lunch or as a side dish.
