These simple apple pie smoothies have serious kid-friendly appeal (see Sarah’s notes for an “adult” taste upgrade), with the creamy “a la mode” blended right in! The recipe was submitted by Rachel Ruiz as a Sippable entry in the BIG Snackable Recipe Contest.
Rachel says, “My 4 year old loves these apple pie smoothies (and so do I)! Like an apple pie in a cup, but dairy-free and packed with healthy goodness.”
Totally Kid-Friendly! Sarah’s family agrees with Rachel’s, all three of her youngest children loved it, even “The girl who will only drink chocolate PB banana smoothies asked if I could make this one for breakfast tomorrow!”
For Adults: Sarah, her husband and her oldest daughter thought it could use a bit more acid, but that could be remedied with a squeeze of lemon, pinch of salt, or homemade applesauce, “If I made it with homemade unsweetened applesauce it would be perfect. I used store bought, which is more bland.”

For nut-free apple pie smoothies, you can use coconut milk beverage and coconut milk yogurt in place of the almond varieties. It will give a slightly different flavor vibe, but should still be quite tasty!
