Apple Smoothie Ingredients

  • Apple juice – Feel free to choose your favorite brand, but I recommend a low sugar or 100% juice option.
  • Water
  • Fresh baby spinach
  • Apples – You will need about 1 medium-sized apple and you can again use your favorite variety. I like Gala or Honeycrisp, or green apples for something more tart.
  • Frozen pineapple – Freeze from fresh or buy in the freezer section.
  • Frozen banana – Chop up some bananas and freeze for smoothies anytime.
  • Ice cubes – optional, but gives a more slushy texture to your apple smoothie.
  • Chia seeds – Optional, but has significant health benefits.

Why we love this recipe!

  • Lots of fruit and veggies make this apple smoothie a healthy snack or breakfast.
  • It’s quick and easy, and uses simple, fresh ingredients.
  • This smoothie tastes sweet and refreshing – kids absolutely love it, and grown-ups, too!

How To Make An Apple Smoothie

  1. Liquid: The liquid for this Apple Smoothie is a combination of apple juice and water. The apple juice imparts a sweet apple flavor throughout the smoothie.
  2. Fruit: This smoothie contains a combination of apples, frozen pineapple and frozen banana. You can use sweet or tart apples. I’ve made it both ways and they’re equally delicious.
  3. Greens: My favorite leafy green to add to smoothies is fresh baby spinach. The flavor is mild and does not come through at all. Spinach adds a beautiful shade of green and an extra boost of nutrients to this smoothie. You can also swap the spinach for another leafy green of your choice (like kale), just be aware that some greens have a strong flavor.
  4. To make this smoothie: Layer the ingredients in your blender, liquids first, then solids and blend until smooth. If it appears too thick, add a splash of water or apple juice and blend it again.

Expert Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

  • Smoothie variations: try adding a scoop of peanut butter or almond butter to your smoothie, use Almond milk instead of water or add a scoop of Greek yogurt.
  • Make it a sweet dessert by adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
