Tweaked Apple Pie Smoothie - even better!


Sunday, February 23, 2014

Ok so I played around with the recipe. Originally I used 24 oz. water now I use 12 oz. and it makes it thicker and more of a liquid apple pie sensation. I prefer it without the ice cubes as well. So play around to get the consistency you like, more or less water or ice cubes.

Do not use less than 1/3 cup dry old fashioned outs because this is what is giving it the thickness and pie like taste. I have made this for breakfast for the past 3 days. Love it! Next I am trying blueberries instead of apple.

Apple Pie Smoothie

3-5 ice cubes
1 large apple quartered
2 small bananas
1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats (Raw do not cook)
1 tsp. cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
splash of vanilla
12 oz. water

***Optional: You can add in:
2 cups of your favorite greens
5 walnuts (or other favorite nut such as raw cashew, almond, brazil)
1 T. hemp seeds
1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
1 Tbsp. chia seeds


Throw into a blender and mix until smooth and creamy.


I have added it to Spark Recipes for those who use the Nutrition Tracker.. recipes.sparkpeople.com/

    I make one that is silk almond milk, chopped apple, flax seed, protein powder, Cinnamon, nutmeg, and Spanish. Taste just like apple pie.

    Yep, we are tweakers. When I made it according to your first recipe it I reduced the fluid by half because I prefer thicker smoothies. I also used plain almond milk instead of water. Next time I would add another apple (mine were smaller than a large) and I'd add only 1 banana (= to 2 small). I think I overdid the nutmeg also. Creating recipes is more an art than a science, right? It was very yummy, and I never used oats in a smoothie before. Very satisfying and filling!
