So I woke up the other morning with the desire to eat pie. Apple pie.
I must have been dreaming about pie or something, because I woke up, with droll all over my face, ready to bake me a pie for breakfast.
But then I came to my senses. “Pie isn’t for breakfast, silly!”, I said to myself.
But I still craved apple pie. So what did I do? I made a smoothie of course! I normally have a green smoothie in the morning, but since my apple pie craving was SO SO STRONG, as in, MUST HAVE IT NOW, I went with a smoothie that tasted like apple pie.
I just threw a bunch of pie ingredients into a blender, added more liquid (duh), and let the blender whirl. And wouldn’t you know it? This smoothie tasted just like apple pie! Without the delicious flaky crust, of course.
But still – YUM.
I was drinking apple pie! From a glass! In the morning!
I’m such a rebel.
Now you can be a rebel, too. Go ahead, drink some pie.
- 1 large apple, sliced (I used a honeycrisp apple)
- 1 large banana
- 1½ cups non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 large date, pitted
- ½ tbsp chia seeds
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- 3 or 4 ice cubes
- Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth!
Use a non-dairy milk other than soy milk to make this recipe soy-free.
