Easy Apple Pie Smoothie Recipe

If you've ever had a craving for apple pie, but wanted something on the healthier side, then we have just the treat for you: our apple pie smoothie! According to recipe developer Susan Olayinka from The Flexible Fridge, "[This drink tastes] just like an apple pie, but in the smoothie form!" Made with fresh apples, porridge oats, yogurt, and a touch of cinnamon, this drink is sure to satisfy anyone you serve it to this fall and beyond.

And the best part of all? This recipe is so healthy. Apples provide fiber, potassium, and vitamins C and K. They are chock-full of polyphenols, which could reduce blood pressure, and they also have pectin that promotes the development of good bacteria in your stomach, according to Healthline. In addition, porridge oats add manganese, phosphorus, iron, and zinc to your diet (via Livestrong). Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory, which may lessen your chance of getting diabetes, per Web MD. So, what are you waiting for? You can have this delicious drink ready to devour in less than 10 minutes.

Gather the ingredients for this easy apple pie smoothie

For this smoothie, the ingredients list is quite simple. You will need to gather two Gala apples, which Olayinka notes, "I find them the sweetest." You will also need cinnamon, plain yogurt, vanilla extract, and porridge oats. (Even though Olyinka used porridge oats in this recipe, she says that steel cut will work just as well.) You will need to round up maple syrup or honey, and milk as well. (Olayinka used oat milk, but your favorite kind of milk will also do).

Prep the apples

For this step, you'll want to slice the apples into bite-size pieces, excluding their cores. Be sure to leave the skins on, as that is where most of the nutrients — especially the polyphenols and fiber — come from. Apple skin also contains quercetin, which may lessen inflammation in the body as well as giving your immune system a solid boost, according to Healthline. Once the apples are sliced and ready to go, place them into the blender.

Blend the ingredients

Once you finish slicing the apples, it's time to move on to the rest of the ingredients. This part is super easy — all you have to do is place the milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, yogurt, and oats into the blender with the apples. Blend the ingredients on high for 30 seconds, or until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Your finished drink should look something like a creamy milkshake, and it might smell pretty awesome, too!

Pour and serve your apple pie smoothie

Would you believe that is it? You are now ready to enjoy this nutrition-packed smoothie. Olayinka says that the cinnamon and sweet flavors stand out in this drink, so you won't even care that you are not eating a slice of apple pie. Chances are that you won't even miss it! You can have this drink at any time of the day, and if you choose to enjoy one for breakfast, you may find that you're filled up for a longer stretch of time because of the porridge oats, per Livestrong.
