Recipe Notes

For purposes of calculating nutrition information, I used 1 scoop of Quest Vanilla Milkshake protein powder (100 calories per scoop). You can substitute with any protein powder that you prefer, or use vanilla Greek yogurt instead.

COOK'S TIPS:

  • Don't forget to freeze your diced apple in advance! The frozen fruit thickens the smoothie without watering it down.
  • For a protein smoothie that's thick enough to eat with a spoon (my favorite!), use at least 2 cups of ice and just a small amount of milk to get it to blend together.
  • If you want some extra fat for staying power in your smoothie, add a tablespoon or two of almond butter or peanut butter to the mix!

RECIPE VARIATIONS:

  • Use a plant-based protein powder for a vegan apple pie smoothie recipe.
  • If you don't want to use protein powder, you can substitute with a container of vanilla Greek yogurt or non-dairy yogurt. The calories and nutrition information will change, though.
  • Add a dash of caramel flavor for a Caramel Apple Pie Smoothie!
  • If you don't have apple pie spice you can substitute with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
  • I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but you can substitute with any milk that you prefer.
  • Did you know that you can now buy non-dairy versions of Reddi-Whip in a can? Now your vegan protein shake can include whipped "cream" too! I've seen both almond milk and coconut milk versions of Reddi-Whip at my local grocery store, so keep your eye out for those.
  • Garnish your smoothie with any sweet, crunchy topping that you love. I think a small crushed gingersnap cookie is perfect, but you can also use granola or graham cracker crumbs!
