Now we all remember that saying “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away”, right? Well, it doesn’t mean an apple-a-day in the form of apple pie (Darn!). However, this Apple Pie Smoothie is the next best thing. You can enjoy this on a daily basis and ward off those pesky doctors, because this heavenly treat is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Ok, let’s be real…you may not avoid all doctor visits with this Apple Pie Smoothie, but you will definitely be nourishing your body and strengthening your immune system. Sounds good to me!

This dreamy fall creation is hearty, healthy and scrumptious. The flavors are reminiscent of grandma’s apple pie, but without all the added sugar and fat. Now before I get lynched by grandma, I better clarify something… I’m not trying to say this replaces grandma’s apple pie, but it’s a healthier alternative on a daily basis. So, when grandma brings her famous apple pie for the holidays, go ahead and indulge (If it’s vegan, of course).

This healthy Apple Pie Smoothie is the perfect fall treat. It's creamy, dreamy & nutritious. It's vegan, gluten-free & guilt-free, too.This refreshing Apple Pie Smoothie is so darn easy to make. It takes about 10 minutes and It’s perfect for those busy mornings. You can head off to work feeling energized and satisfied. The kiddos will love this apple-licious treat, too. They will have a full belly and big warm smiles. You can feel good about serving them this protein-packed & nourishing treat. It’s wholesome, hearty and healthy!

I added lots of love to this creamy glass of deliciousness. For the base, I used almond milk, but any plant-based milk will work. It’s naturally sweetened with crisp apples and medjool dates, so there’s no need to add sugar. To make it thick, I used creamy almond butter and rolled oats, which also adds a nice bit of protein and fiber. For that apple pie flavor, I added some cinnamon, vanilla and a pinch of nutmeg. To make these extra special, I topped them with some fresh coconut whip and added a cinnamon stick (which also doubles as a straw). These little add-ons aren’t needed, but are nice if you have the extra time.

Mmmm, now this is my kind of apple pie! I’m not a pie person when it comes to normal “pie form” but when it’s in the form of a smoothie, bar, bite, oatmeal, granola, I’m always game!
