You can use any kind of apple in this recipe. It will taste best if your apples taste sweet. There’s a big range of flavors in apples, so just know the final flavor it connected to the flavor of the apples. Honeycrisp and Pink Lady are good options.


  • 1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt or milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 /2 cup sliced apple (about 1 small), fresh or frozen (if using fresh apple, add a few ice cubes)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or almond butter, optional
  • pinch cinnamon, optional
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup, optional


  1. Add the ingredients to a blender.
  2. Start on low and work up to high, blending very smooth. If the mixture seems too thick, add a little milk.
  3. Add a pinch of cinnamon and maple syrup if using.
  4. Serve or store for later and serve within 24 hours.


You can use fresh or frozen apples in this recipe.

If you use fresh apples, add a few ice cubes to make it smoothie consistency.

I stash any leftover apple slices from my kids meals into a freezer bag in the freezer for future smoothies.

Using Greek yogurt will add more protein and creaminess to the smoothie, though it’s good with milk too!

I prefer using plain unsweetened nondairy milk in smoothies (like soy or plant milk).

You may need to thin the smoothie a little with milk to work with your straw cup if the straw is thinner.
