Apple Crisp Smoothie

Apple Crisp Smoothie Recipe -

You know how obsessed I am with all things apple so you had to have seen this coming. My oldest, while totally loving strawberries, for some baffling reason didn’t enjoy any other smoothie I made besides this one. No joke and I don’t entirely blame her. Like mother like daughter, totally in love with apples. It was truly delicious, full of all of the flavors you’d hope for from an apple crisp. I could’ve called this spiced apple smoothie and I thought about that but I liked apple crisp smoothie better. It’s not crisp but it does have all of the same ingredients – apples, spices, oats… and of course some other ingredients. And yes, there is a bit of measuring with this one. You don’t have to measure if you don’t want to. Shake shake shake if you trust your shaking instinct. But absolutely do make this. It’s a sip of Fall while waiting for Spring to arrive. Kind of weird I know but I’d love it to always be Fall.

On a totally unrelated topic, can we please discuss how completely ridiculous it is to try and give a 3 1/2 year old eye drops? Having three kids in the house means that sickness spreads easily and as much as I’d hoped the pink eye would stop with our oldest, of course her little sister got it. Now I’m dealing with the nightmare of treatment. As dramatic as it is to give her the silly eye drops, it’s kind of comical in the end because she flat out refuses to open her eyes once the drops are in, of course claiming simply that she can’t. We’ll ask her all kinds of questions trying to trick her into opening her eyes. No such luck. I have to open them for her and then she’s fine. Weird I know. I seriously need to get it on video. Fingers crossed lil man doesn’t get it. Can you imagine that drama?

    You and your apples! I don’t think I’ve ever put apples in a smoothie – I need to try it!

    • Rachel — April 12th, 2013 @ 12:07 pm

      This totally made me laugh. Is my obsession that bad? ;)

    I can’t make apple crisps because they’re my favorite dessert and I’ll eat it ALL, but I need to make this. It looks incredible!! Such a great idea. Pinned & making ASAP!

    • Rachel — April 12th, 2013 @ 12:08 pm

      You should make individual apple crisps! Maybe slightly time consuming but still worth it and then you don’t have a huge amount leftover taunting you :)

    So yummy! Just the fall-inspired treat I need while we suffer through an early summer here in Austin, haha. Thanks Rachel!

    Fall is honestly my favorite time of year and this Apple Crisp Smoothie takes me back to September when the leaves where turning a brilliant orange.

    • Rachel — April 12th, 2013 @ 6:16 pm

      Same here! Fall has everything going for it. If it were possible, I’d make it so there was only Fall and no other season ;)

    Suddenly Im wishing it was Fall! Although it feels like Fall outside right now, so I guess this is justified ;) Now for the blender situation…

    What kind of apples did you use?

    • Rachel — April 27th, 2013 @ 7:35 am

      I used Macintosh, but I always recommend using whatever apple you like the flavor of best.
