This delicious and creamy Apple Pie Smoothie tastes just like having apple pie a la mode for breakfast!
Cinnamon Apple Banana Smoothie
All fall long, I stock apple cider in our fridge. I just love that thirst-quenching, full-bodied flavor of a cup of apple cider – whether it’s served hot or cold (we like to make crockpot apple cider!)
My daughter loves it too, and when we have low-key mornings where she can enjoy her apple cider with a healthy breakfast, I don’t mind serving her a glass – but on most mornings I can barely get her to eat a few bitefuls of food before she is out the door for school.
Smoothies are a staple in our home – they make mornings easier and are a great way to sneak in some extra nutrition.
So, with a little experimenting we whipped up this creamy and delicious apple pie smoothie for a more filling and nutritious option on busy weekday mornings. You can toss in some chia seeds or flax meal to bump up the health quotient, if desired.
This apple pie smoothie is perfect for busy fall mornings and while it’s great for kids, it’s also a great alternative to your morning latte if you’re trying to cut back. I also like it for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up and it stops me from wanting to indulge in more sugar-laden treats.
You can enjoy this with or without ice – I like including the ice to add a bit more water to her mornings and it helps achieve that frothy texture – but on a cold fall morning, you might want to leave it out. Either way, definitely don’t leave out the generous hit of cinnamon. It absolutely makes this smoothie and tricks your tastebuds into thinking you’re being more indulgent than you really are.
