Apple Pie Smoothie

Pin It Now!

Last week we picked exactly 50 apples on our apple picking field trip. Today we have exactly 20 apples left. That means in the last week our family has consumed 30 apples! That seems like a lot doesn't it? I have been trying to use apples in everything I can think of and this morning I had an idea to make a smoothie with the flavors of apple pie. I did a quick google search and came across a few different recipes and found one from Dinners, Dishes and Dessert as a starting point. As with most smoothies this recipe can be versatile.

Did this taste just like apple pie? Well, no. Flaky, buttery pie crust and warm cinnamon, sugary apples are hard to compete with. But the flavors in this smoothie did blend well enough to remind you of apple pie and it did taste good!

Recipe adapted from Dinners, Dishes and Dessert

Apple Pie Smoothie

2 cups Non Fat Greek Yogurt
4 tsp cinnamon
4 apples, cut into chunks (I used jonagold)
1 banana
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 cups skim milk 
*note this made enough for 4 smoothies for our family for breakfast
Put everything in the blender(I used a vitamix), and blend until smooth.
Guten Appetit!
