September 3rd, 2014 | Fun

Can you smell fall in the air? Before you know it, it will be well on its way! This month, we are feeling pretty fall-inspired… and with apple season starting up, we knew immediately what type of smoothie we should share.

This month’s smoothie is Apple Pie – the healthy way!

The Recipe

You will need:

  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbs greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbs flaxseed
  • Pinch of nutmeg

Blend together, and voila! One of the healthiest ways you will enjoy apple pie in your life.

The Benefits

This smoothie surely has a number of benefits to be discussed… Let’s check out the top three healthy ingredients.


  • Apples give you a boost in vitamin C, which helps your body to make collagen. This helps to maintain your skin’s waterproof barrier!
  • Apples provide your body with copper, which helps you make melanin. Melanin protects your skin from the sun’s UV rays.
  • Vitamin A in apples helps your skin to develop and mature. It may also reduce the risk of skin cancer.
  • Apples can help reduce cholesterol levels.


  • Studies have shown that cinnamon may reduce arthritis pain.
  • Double time! Aside from apples, cinnamon can ALSO help to reduce bad cholesterol levels.
  • Cinnamaldehyde, a natural chemical in cinnamon, has been shown to help balance out hormones in women. Hear that, ladies?
  • Cinnamon has natural anti-infectious compounds that can protect against pathogens, including ulcer-cauasing H. pylori bacteria.


  • Yes… TRIPLE time! Flaxseed also helps to lower bad cholesterol.
  • Flaxseed can help prevent diabetes and stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • Flaxseed is rich in Omega-3s, which can help promote the healing of various skin conditions. This includes eczema, psoriasis, acne, and dry skin.

Sounds good, right?
