Do you like apple pie? If so, you will probably enjoy this delicious and creamy apple smoothie. It’s so good that it almost feels like having a dessert. It could actually be one; a healthy one of course. This apple pie smoothie/bowl is good and good for you too! It’s a win-win!
It’s fall so it’s perfect for the season. I used seasonal apples, which we have tons here in Canada. I used only one in the smoothie but you may want to try with two. The other ingredient that I may also suggest adding is coconut oil. I forgot to add it in the smoothie but it would be an excellent addition. It would make it more satisfying and even healthier.
I used homemade cashew milk. I did cashew milk by soaking cashew in water for 4 hours, then rinsing, and blending with filtered water as well as a medjool date, a splash of vanilla and a pinch of sea salt. If you don’t have time to make cashew milk, you can buy it in most health food stores. If you can’t find it, simply use your favorite non-dairy milk.
This smoothie makes a delicious snack. Kids should enjoy it too. You’ll probably want to enjoy it with a spoon. It’s raw (if making homemade milk), vegan and gluten-free.
