Or in a jar.

This is the same jar that you see all of my smoothies in. Yes, I only have one jar. In fact, it is Mr. How Sweet’s jar and it is from Bass Pro Shops. It is the one item that I allowed him to bring from his stinky bachelor pad. It makes me feel… southern.

Actually, that’s a lie – I let him bring other items, but they have since been banished to his room: the garage. Except for that darn turkey. Don’t even get me started.
I actually added apples to this smoothie, and it was my first time. Prior to this, I was an apple smoothie virgin.

I thought that roasted apples would add a more intense, sweet flavor, so I used the lazy man’s method of roasting and microwaved half of a honeycrisp with some spices.

Excellent idea.

I’m sure that actually roasting or caramelizing the apples would be delicious for the smoothie, but I don’t have time for such shenanigans.  Especially since this was an attempt to make a quick snack that I can drink! Drinking = portability and ease.

Except when it comes to rum. I wouldn’t suggest making your rum portable.
Though now that I have mentioned rum, I think it may be pretty incredible in this smoothie. Kind of like a spiked apple cider smoothie?


Apple Pie in a Glass Jar
1 cup milk (I used vanilla almond milk, it’s what I had on hand)

1/3 cup vanilla greek yogurt

1/2 large honeycrisp apple, chopped

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 pinches of nutmeg

pinch of ground cloves

pinch of cardamom

Sprinkle the chopped apples with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Microwave (or roast/caramelize) for 60 seconds until apples are soft and sweet.

In a blender, combine milk, yogurt, vanilla, apples, and spices. Blend until smooth. Stir in graham cracker crumbs – they add a nice crunch! Sprinkle with additional cinnamon or all spice.

And there you have it – apple pie in a glass (jar)!

    I hate to even tell you this, but I just added some spinach to this and it made the BEST green smoothie ever! Anything to cover up the flavor of veggies is good with me :)

    You make the best smoothies. I just got a new blender and I’m still dreaming of that smoothie that had the snickerdoodle in it.

    Just wanted to let you know I tried out your apple smoothie yesterday morning and also posted a link to your recipe on my blog yesterday.

    Just curious- Did you find the consistency of the skin to be kind of weird in your smoothie, or did you cook the apples enough that the skin was not an issue? I think I will make it again, and try peeling the apple first (though I’m sure I’ll be missing some of the fiber from leaving the skin on).

      Skin wasn’t an issue for me – I used a honey crisp and the skin was very thin, then I microwaved it so it was very soft. I also pulverized it in the blender. :)

    Yummo! Made an apple pie smoothie myself a while ago, but I like the idea of roasting the apple first. And of course, who wouldn’t love crunchy graham cracker crumbs on top. Great idea & one I’ll definitely be trying.
