Easy Apple Smoothie
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)
Add the ingredients to a blender.
Start on low and work up to high, blending very smooth. If the mixture seems too thick, add a little milk.
Add a pinch of cinnamon and maple syrup if using.
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.
