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 (entries are now closed, but the winners will be announced on that post!).
The contest is a celebration of our new FREE Snackable eBook with delicious, original Sweet, Savory and Sippable Dairy-Free Recipes. Download and enjoy it now via PDF, iTunes, Kindle, Kobo or Google Play: www.godairyfree.org/snackable-ebook
To qualify for the contest, this recipe for Apple Pie Smoothies uses Almond Milk Beverage and Cultured Almond Milk (aka “dairy-free yogurt”) from So Delicious Dairy Free.
Since Sarah has tested and approved this recipe for apple pie smoothies as one she would repeat, I’ve added it to the “Sarah’s Recipes” section. Here are her personal notes on the recipe:
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.”
Special Diet Notes: Apple Pie Smoothies
By ingredients this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan / plant-based, and vegetarian.
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!
