Apple Pie Smoothie
This easy-to-make smoothie is full of delicious fall flavors and a hidden veggie that your little one won’t even notice #momwin.
It’s fall and while apple pie might not be in your kids life on a daily basis, this Apple Pie Smoothie certainly should be!
I made this smoothie for myself as a post-workout snack and while I was in my basement tossing in a load of laundry, my girls found my smoothie cup and took it hostage for themselves. The devoured it in a few gulps and then demanded more.
You can’t get too mad when your little ones steal your healthy smoothie 😉
To make this toddler and kid friendly we keep the ingredients super simple – apple, banana, hemp seeds, oats, spices, milk and cauliflower.
But don’t be fooled by all those healthy and wholesome ingredients, this smoothie tastes amazing! Full of spices, apples and an oat crust – this smoothie tastes just as good, if not better, than a real apple pie.

Apple – the key ingredient in this apple pie smoothie – the apple is the star! You can use any apple variety your prefer, but I would stay away from green or red delicious apples as they don’t blend as well as other apple varieties. You can peel or not peel the apples – I didn’t peel my apple in the pictures above. If you have a high speed blender, you will be fine.
Banana – are a great base or any smoothie as they blend up smooth and creamy. They are also loaded with potassium and vitamin C, as well as aid in digestion and help boost your energy.
Oats – are a great addition to this smoothie to make it really taste like a pie. I use old-fashion oats in this recipe for maximum nutrients, but you can use quick oats if you prefer.
Cauliflower – provides a creamy and frothy consistency while also boosting the fiber, antioxidants and B-vitamins!
Hemp Seeds – are one of my favorite ways to add a natural superfood based protein to smoothies. They blend right up (no clumps or hard seeds) while also providing a good amount of healthy fats, essential fatty acids, high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium.
Spices – to give this a truly apple pie taste we add in a pinch of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Short on time, you can skip the cloves and nutmeg but don’t skip the cinnamon – this makes the smoothie.
Milk – you can use any milk your family prefers – cow, almond, hemp, soy, coconut, cashew, oat, etc. If you are using a plant based milk, just make sure to use an unflavored and unsweetened milk based product.
Honey – if you want to sweetened this up a little bit, you can add a tablespoon or two of honey. This is entirely optional and should be avoided if you are serving this to baby under 1 year of age.
