Ok, so the idea of making an apple pie-flavored smoothie might sound a bit weird, but trust me on this one… it tastes amazing!!
Not only does this apple pie smoothie recipe have added protein, but it’s also got hidden veg that you can’t even taste – so it really packs in the goodness.
Like all of my recipes, this one is 100% vegan (I’ll show you what vegan protein powder I use and where to get it below).

What Equipment Do I Need to Make this Smoothie Recipe?
Barely anything at all! You will need a decent blender though – I recently invested in a Vitamix because I use it literally every day. But you don’t need anything that hardcore to make this apple smoothie super smooth and lump-free.
The three bits of kitchen kit you will need are:
If you are feeling in the mood for a splurge then I highly recommend the Vitamix A2500i – it’s an amazing piece of kit! It’s what I use and I’ve been blown away by how smooth it makes everything.

Apple Pie Smoothie Ingredients (and Easy Swaps)
There’s not much to this apple pie smoothie recipe. Which, let’s be honest, is exactly what you want for a quick-to-make breakfast, snack, or post-workout boost.
- Apples – I’m sure any kind would be delicious still by I go for the sweeter varieties for this smoothie, like Gala or Jazz.
- Spinach or kale – The flavor of the veg melts into the background so either will do – whatever needs using up in the fridge! The veg also turns this into a green apple pie smoothie recipe – which just looks SO delicious.
- Vanilla protein – If you only have the plain protein you can still use this but add in some vanilla essence too. (See below for my protein recommendations).
- Plant-based milk – I use oat milk because it’s the creamiest, but any plant-based milk will work.
What Vegan Protein to Use?
I’ve heard some horror stories about vegan protein but luckily have never been on the wrong end of a bad bag. If this has happened to you – my sympathies. That stuff ain’t cheap!
My go-to vegan protein shop is The Protein Works. I got my protein powder from there even before I was vegan so they are a very much tried and tested brand for me. I’ve not been able to taste any difference in what I used to buy to the stuff I get now!
Their vegan selection is huge and I’ve just recently bought a few different flavors to try, but the one I just keep coming back to is the Vegan Protein Extreme Vanilla Creme – it’s just SO GOOD!
The vanilla flavor is what I use in this recipe, but if you already have some vanilla protein knocking around then give that a go!

Storage and Easy Prep
I have a massive prep hack for you here!
You can pre-prep several portions at once by peeling and chopping the apples, then adding them to a freezer bag with some pre-washed raw spinach. Then all you have to do in the morning is empty the bag along with the other ingredients into your blender and you’ve got a healthy apple pie smoothie in only a couple of minutes!
Pro tip: If you’re washing the spinach at home, do this before prepping for the smoothie and let it dry completely before freezing.
If you don’t get round to drinking the apple pie smoothie right away, then you can just pop it in the fridge for later. It will need a little stir when you go to drink it but it will taste just as delicious!
