I’m always trying to get creative during apple season. My family loves to go apple picking, so we find ourselves with an overabundance of apples this time of year.
I love all the baked goods that apples can inspire (like this healthy apple bundt cake), but sometimes I just want to make something easy. As in, five minutes and done. This apple smoothie recipe is just the thing for days like those.
How to Make Apple Smoothies
You can get the delicious flavor of apple pie without all the fuss. The banana and maple syrup sweeten the apples in this smoothie, and the spices give it just the right taste.
I like using coconut milk in smoothies to generate a creamy texture. And with homemade coconut milk, it doesn’t cost any more than conventional cow’s milk. But any milk will do if you have another preference.
As with most smoothies, this tastes best the day it’s made. We never have leftovers when we make this delicious recipe.
Apple Smoothie Recipe
- 1 lb apples
- 1 ripe banana sliced and frozen
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- 1 1/4 cups coconut milk
- 1 tbs maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt
- pinch of nutmeg
- pinch of ginger
- Cut the apples in quarters and remove the cores. You can leave the skins on if you’re using a high-powered blender. There are lots of nutrients and fiber in the peels. (Use organic apples if possible.)
- Place the coconut milk and maple syrup in the blender, followed by the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Add the apples, banana, and ice cubes last.
- Process the ingredients until smooth. Divide into four glasses and serve.
