Apple smoothie recipe


  • 1 medium apple, cored and chopped (you can peel it if you prefer)
  • 1/2 frozen banana (peeled and sliced before freezing)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or a non-dairy yogurt alternative
  • 1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy, such as almond, soy, or oat milk)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  1. Prepare the Apple:
    • Wash, core, and chop the apple. If you like a smoother texture, you can peel the apple before chopping.
  2. Blend:
    • Place the chopped apple, frozen banana, Greek yogurt, milk, honey or maple syrup, ground cinnamon, and vanilla extract (if using) in a blender.
  3. Blend Until Smooth:
    • Blend on high speed until all the ingredients are well combined and the smoothie reaches a creamy consistency.
  4. Taste and Adjust:
    • Taste the smoothie and adjust the sweetness and cinnamon levels according to your preference. Add more honey, maple syrup, or cinnamon if desired.
  5. Add Ice (Optional):
    • If you prefer a colder and thicker smoothie, you can add a handful of ice cubes and blend again until smooth.
  6. Serve:
    • Pour the apple smoothie into glasses and enjoy immediately.
  7. Garnish (Optional):
    • You can garnish the smoothie with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top or a few apple slices for an extra touch.
