I never expected it… but this smoothie really taste like apple pie filling! It’s fresh, raw, foamy, yummy. The dates yield a delicious caramel flavor and sweetness. The almonds make it extra creamy and perfect.
I made this so often for breakfast this week. Seems to be my favorite right now. Another great part: It’s not pricey! Apples are the seasonal fruit right now, at my grocery store, it’s the freshest and cheapest thing I can get.
But what I like best about this smoothie: It’s so easy! I usually have all the ingredients at hand. You only need one kind of fruit! Just apples, no more. And you won’t believe how delicious it is until you tried!
Apple Pie Smoothie
one big Smoothie
- 2 apples, cut into quarters
- 1/8 cup almond (about one hand full)
- about 5 dates
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 cup water or as needed
- optional: some oats or flaxseed – make it a breakfast!
But everything in your blender, ice cubes first. Add as much water as needed for desired consistence. Blend – and enjoy! If you like your smoothie even sweeter, you can add some stevia.
I put some oats and flax seed in my smoothie as a breakfast – the oats make a great “pie crust”. You could also crumble some graham cracker on top of your smoothie. Or decorate it with some cream and cinnamon!
Awesome stuff! I love all the ingredients! :-)

Haha, me too! But the combination does the trick!
Perfect for sunny autumn days.
Sounds great! I will have to try this!
This looks delicious! I must try it when I have a working blender again (RIP Glenda the Blender) ): I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award here http://tattybowjangles.wordpress.com/2012/10/21/liebster-award/ , if you’d like to accept it!
Looks delicious. I will have to try it soon.

I might be tempted to skip the ice cubes and serve this warm, especially now that it’s snowing (!) outside.
