Healthy Apple Pie Smoothie

This delicious Apple Pie Smoothie is made with Greek yogurt, nut butter, a little maple syrup, and of course plenty of warming apple pie spices. It’s creamy, delicious, and the perfect smoothie to enjoy during the cozy fall season or all year round!

This recipe is sponsored by Planet Oat who I am excited to be partnering with throughout 2021. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love to enjoy a thick and creamy smoothie for a healthy breakfast. It’s an easy way to pack in so many nutrients, healthy fats, fiber, and so much more.

This delicious apple pie smoothie is filled with all the good things like unsweetened applesauce, sweet banana, pecan butter, and made rich creamy thanks to Planet Oat Unsweetened Vanilla Oatmilk.

With the combination of fruit and warming spices, this smoothie is like a yummy slice of apple pie in a glass and I know you will love it!

Apple Pie Smoothie Ingredients

Unsweetened applesauce: I like to use an unsweetened applesauce for this recipe which allows me to better control the level of sweetness. If you want even more cinnamon flavor, feel free to use unsweetened cinnamon applesauce instead of regular.

Frozen banana: this helps to add a bit of sweetness and makes the smoothie rich and creamy.

Full fat Greek yogurt: for an added punch of healthy fats and protein!

Maple syrup: this sweetens up the smoothie and gives it an extra bit of delicious maple flavor.

Planet Oat Unsweetened Vanilla Oatmilk: this creamy unsweetened vanilla oatmilk is free of dairy, gluten, soy, and peanuts which makes it a great option for everyone no matter their dietary preferences. The vanilla flavor works perfectly with the rest of the ingredients in the smoothie and is the perfect addition. Planet Oat Vanilla Oatmilk is also available, for anyone who prefers a sweeter treat.

Vanilla extract: for an extra hit of delicious vanilla flavor.

Spices: for that true apple pie flavor, this smoothie uses a combination of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and ginger.

Pecan butter: creamy nut butter helps to really make this smoothie taste just like apple pie.

Tips and Tricks for the Best Smoothie

  1. Add the liquid first – add your Planet Oat Vanilla Oatmilk to the base of the blender first. This helps make it easier for the smoothie to blend well.
  2. Start slow – start the blender speed on low and then gradually turn it up before bringing it to full speed to ensure that the ingredients break down and blend completely.
  3. Use frozen fruit – for this recipe it’s important your banana is frozen to ensure you get that delicious creamy texture.
  4. Ditch the ice – if you typically add ice to your smoothies it may be tempting to add it to this one but trust me you do not need it. Just use a frozen banana instead to keep things cold.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this smoothie vegan?

Yes! feel free to use your favorite dairy-free Greek yogurt or just leave it out completely.

How do I turn this into an apple protein smoothie?

I love adding a scoop of my favorite protein powder to this smoothie. For the best results, I recommend using a vanilla flavored or unflavored protein powder.

Can use honey instead of maple syrup?

Sure! you could also use a soaked, softened date as a sweetener as well.

What can I substitute for pecan butter?

Almond or cashew butter would both work well as a substitute! I recommend staying away from peanut butter as it will change the flavor of the smoothie.
