Ah, apple pie. That classic, all-American dessert. Sweet and tangy apples blending with spicy cinnamon, melting in your mouth in a flaky crust. What could be more comforting?
If only it weren’t so rich! Did you know that one-eighth of a 9-inch apple pie has 300 calories and 14 grams of fat? It’s true—just Google it. Sure, those are 300 worthy calories, but it’s still not something you want to indulge in every day.
Unless you indulge in my much lighter, healthier version that you can whip up in the blender. Its blend of sweet honey, creamy yogurt, apples, and milk satisfies your apple pie cravings without all the extra fat. If you really miss the crust, just garnish it with a graham cracker. And since it’s so light, you can even add a little extra indulgence by topping it with a spritz of whipped cream.
Another bonus: unlike a real apple pie, which takes a couple of hours to assemble and bake, this Healthy Apple Pie Smoothie can be ready in minutes. So when that apple-pie urge hits, you can hit back fast.
