Who doesn’t love a warm slice of gooey, crumbly, explode-in-your-mouth apple pie? Liquify it this fall—and lean it up in the process—with our seasonally delicious Apple Pie Crumble Protein Smoothie.

Using fresh apples while they’re radiantly ripe, paired with the powerhouse combo of protein powder, almond butter, and rolled oats, and it immediately blends up into a pristinely balanced, nutrient-dense uber-smoothie.

It’s dessert served in a tall glass (or mason jar), sans the gut-busting calorie, fat, or sugar count. All in, each serving rolls deep at 16g of protein — all for a svelte 255 calories. Pour it high, chug it down, and I guarantee that your mouth will be drooling for round 2.

Whether you’re looking to re-up after an intense HIIT workout, want a quick flood of autumnal deliciousness, or need a creative way to burn through the 3874213341 apples you hauled in apple picking, it’s the perfect addition to any knockout smoothie collection.

The Apple Pie Crumble Protein Smoothie — Ingredients:

*Makes 1 HUGE smoothie or 2 smaller smoothies.

  • 1.5 cups almond milk (or coconut almond milk)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder — unflavored works also (I use NOW unflavored). Use our protein powder guide if you’re looking to buy a jug. Toss in 1.5-2 scoops if you want it extra protein-y.
  • 1 apple, remove the core
  • 1/2 banana
  • 3 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 tsp. apple/pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 4 ice cubes
  • *Optional — add 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum to make it thicker.

We always recommend a high speed blender (like a Vitamix) to make pro-status smoothies.


Make It:

Time: 5 minutes

Servings: 1 huge smoothie

  • (1) Throw everything in a blender.
  • (2) If you’ve got a variable speed blender, start on low and work your way up slowly to top power.
  • (3) Chug.
