How to make apple pie smoothie with almond milk
Frozen apples – just like oats and/or bananas in a smoothie, frozen apples in smoothies yield thickness. You may want to follow suit by freezing some chopped apples and using them to make a thickie (smoothie).
Plant based milk – my favourite milk to use in a smoothie is almond milk followed by coconut milk. You can use which ever vegan friendly milk you prefer.
Blender – as there are sooo many delicious ingredients incorporated this recipe. You may want to use a high speed blender such as a vitamix or blend tech to completely pulverize everything into a smoothie.
