This creamy Apple Smoothie has a hint of Fall spices mixed with Greek yogurt for a healthy dose of protein (17 grams!). Delicious breakfast or snack idea!
Over the weekend it started to feel like Fall. The air was cool, the fog lingered throughout the day keeping the sky gray, and I spent the last few days fighting a stomach bug and sore throat!
Definite indication that the weather is changing.
Whenever I feel flu-like symptoms with nausea and an upset stomach I immediately start taking probiotics.
I buy those little liquid shots of live cultures and every 3 hours drink one up, and for extra good measure I will add more yogurt to my diet.
It makes me feel better every time, so I’m convinced that those cultures are doing a good job fighting the bug that wants to camp in my body.
Healthy apple smoothie
Determined to feel better quick, I started to experiment with a Fall smoothie using Greek yogurt and my Apple Pie Spice Mix that I just made. I love the way this recipe came together.
This smoothie is filled with good for you ingredients, and tastes like an apple pie indulgence!
Greek yogurt provides about 17 grams of filling protein, and frozen apple slices are the bulk of the drink.
Also, remember that an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Apple smoothie with skin left on
I kept the skin on the apples since there are good nutrients in the skin and my Ninja does an excellent job of pulverizing everything.
I always prefer using frozen fruits instead of adding ice to my smoothies. Frozen fruits adds a thicker and creamier consistency.
It’s going to be an Apple Spice Smoothie week! Join me!!
Apple Spice Smoothie
Delicious apple smoothie made with Greek yogurt. Creamy and filling breakfast, afternoon snack or pre/post workout healthy drink.
- 6 ounces, Greek yogurt, plain
- 1 cup milk (almond, coconut)
- 1 diced and seed apple frozen
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon apple spice mix

Peel the apple if you don't care for the skin. Also, if your apple slices are not frozen you may want to add 1 cup of ice when blending the ingredients.

I’ve never tried that when I was unwell but I’m going to give it a try next time I’m under the weather. What a great tasty way to improve your health!
It’s a tasty way to fight the bug!
Ugh, hope you’re feeling better! And this looks like one scrumptious smoothie…still can’t seem to get behind the green ones 🙂
heehee! I love green smoothies, and every other type too 🙂 Thanks, Liz! I do feel tons better!
April @ My Real Food Family
I love smoothies so I’ll have to try this one. Looks absolutely delicious!
Thanks, April! I hope you like the flavor of apple and cinnamon as much as I do!
Did I read Greek yogurt? Count me in please!
It’s a staple here, Katerina! Greek yogurt is the best and so filling 😉
Michelle @ The Complete Savorist
You’re so creative. I love this.
Thanks, Michelle! I just make smoothies a lot, so try different concoctions 🙂
What a great looking drink. It’s so beautifully presented. I take a probiotic everyday as it’s something the doctor said I should do. I managed to get through the cold and flu season with no illnesses so maybe the probiotic helped xx
I just mentioned to my co-worker that I should take probiotics everyday just for the reason you mentioned. Smart doc you have!
Hope you are fully recovered from whatever was ailing you. Never froze apples, should give that a try.
I feel SO much better, Norma. Thank you! Yes, freeze your apples. I had a bunch that were getting almost to soft for our munching preference, so I sliced them all up. Perfect for this smoothie recipe!
Interesting tip on taking probiotics on the onset of a cold! I will have to try that out along with this smoothie! Living in Florida we still have the heat so having a cold smoothie is very desirable. Having it taste like Fall sounds really good!
Taking probiotics really works well for me! In just two days I feel back to normal! I drink smoothies all year long, but they are super refreshing when the weather is warm.
