This Apple Smoothie is bursting with delicious flavor and is so good for you. It is a smoothie recipe that you will want to make over and over again!
It's apple season! Yay! We live in New York State so to us fall means cooler weather, beautiful fall colored leaves on the trees and delicious local apples!
One of the great things about living in New York State is all the apple farms here. There are so many local apples to choose from at our local farmer's market. Fresh from the farm taste so much better than the apples from the store!
Grocery Shopping List:
- frozen blueberries
- frozen raspberries
- ground flaxseed (optional)
When making this Apple Smoothie, we add in frozen berries. The frozen fruit helps to chill the smoothie and makes it a thicker smoothie. This way you don't need to add ice to the smoothie.
Tip on buying apples for baking or making smoothies...buy 2-3 different varieties to use in your recipes. I love mixing together the different apples when making this Apple Smoothie because it gives the best flavor!
When I make my favorite Apple Pie recipe, I make sure to mix up the apples for sure with that one! I usually do some red varieties and then add in a couple of green apples. I really think it does add so much flavor!
How to make this Apple Smoothie:
When making this smoothie, rinse off the apples and dry them. Then slice up the apples into medium sized pieces. Discard the apple seeds.
Recipe Tip: Don't peel the apples! There is so much good nutrition in the apple skins. If you leave the skin on the apples you will get more of the nutrients of the apples than if you peel the apples. Here is a good post on apple nutrition.
Then add the sliced apples into your blender. I use a Ninja Master Prep blender and it works great for making all of our smoothies.
Add the frozen blueberries and raspberries, ground flaxseed and water. When measuring the frozen berries, use a heaping cup of them. Let them go over the top a little bit...more flavor and nutrition for your Apple Smoothie!
Blend until it is smooth and serve it chilled. That's it...so quick and easy to make something so delicious and good for you!
Ground flaxseed is a great way to add protein to your smoothies. This is great especially if you want to have a smoothie for breakfast.
Use a couple different varieties of apples for the best flavor. Mix red and green apples or use a couple of your favorite red apple varieties.
Don't peel the apples. Leaving the skin on the apples gives you more nutritional benefits.
This Apple Smoothie recipe makes about four cups. We usually divide it into four individual servings so each of us has a smoothie.
If you have any leftover smoothie, store it in a glass in your refrigerator for up to two days. It may settle at the bottom a little, so give it a stir before drinking it.
My kids love to have smoothies as a healthy afternoon snack. These smoothies are kid approved and great to have to get your kids to eat more healthy ingredients.
