My kids and I enjoy making smoothies for a quick snack or light lunch. This Apple Smoothie is my favorite Fall smoothie! It is simple to make, but tasty and filling, which makes it perfect for a whipping up a quick treat. With fresh picked apples it is the perfect fall beverage.
I like to make this smoothie without peeling the apple, and I have a Vitamix blender, which has no problem blending up the skin. I think itt looks pretty with all the flecks of red in the smoothie, and there are quite a few nutrients in the skin too. But if you have a less powerful blender you might want to peel the apple first. This is perfect for tart apples like Northern Spy, Braeburn or Paula Red.
It has all the taste of apple pie, without all the calories! I think it tastes best with almond milk, because that makes the smoothie rich and creamy. But I have made it with regular milk and it is still tasty.
