HOW TO MAKE AN APPLE PIE SMOOTHIE
This apple smoothie is SO easy to make! Just add all the ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend on high until completely smooth. Add more liquid if needed.
TIPS AND TRICKS:
- Freeze the chopped apples for a super cold and thick smoothie. It’s best to freeze them on a tray first before transferring them to a freezer bag so they won’t clump together.
- For a thicker smoothie, use 1/4 cup less milk. Add as needed if it’s too thick.
- Instead of almond butter, you can use cashew, walnut, sunflower seed, or macadamia butter. Peanut butter works, but the flavor really comes through.
- Instead of flaxseeds, you can use chia or hemp seeds.
- If you don’t have medjool dates, you can use deglet dates, but just add a few more because they are smaller.
- Vanilla extract
- Rolled oats
- Non-dairy yogurt
- Plant-based protein powder
- Maple syrup
- Ground ginger (just a pinch!)
- Coconut whipped cream
- Cinnamon stick
- Ground cinnamon (doubles as a straw!)
- Coconut flakes
