How We Came Up With The Healthy Apple Crisp Smoothie Idea
My family loves eating apple crisp. I have made many iterations until I perfected the healthy apple crisp recipe for us. We make it without butter, no added sugar, and no all-purpose flour. I also use a slow cooker for a recipe without oil at all. Check it out by following this LINK. Then, I started thinking of creative ways to serve the apple crisp. That is how several recipes were born. We made apple crisp yogurt pudding, sesame milk apple crisp pudding, and this apple crisp smoothie recipe with 2% reduced-fat milk. The sky is the limit of how many ways you can serve the delicious apple crisp. Keep trying using coconut milk, flavored yogurt, flavored milk, etc.
We Are Following Safe Recipe Guidelines
We are super excited to say we are now following saferecipeguide.org safe recipe guidelines to make our recipe instructions safe-friendly. After all our mantra is to be healthy! The guidelines are on how to improve safely handling food, such as washing hands prior to cooking, how to wash fruits and vegetables, on what temperature to cook meat, etc.
Ingredients For Healthy Apple Crisp Smoothie
Healthy Apple Crisp
I am not sure if you can buy ready to eat apple crisp from the store. I always made my own apple crisps from scratch. It is actually pretty easy to make one. Follow this LINK for the step by step instructions on how to make it. Our recipe is a healthy version of the apple crisp or crumble so probably a better health-wise choice from buying it from the store. Our healthy apple crisp is rich in calcium, iron, protein, Vitamin A, B, C, K, fiber, potassium, healthy fats, polyphenols, antioxidants, magnesium, phosphorus, niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin. Or you can use our slow-cooked apple crisp recipe if you don’t want to use the oven.
2% Reduced Fat Milk
Our family enjoys milk in many varieties. We use it for cereal in the morning, for making oatmeal, hot wheat cereal, for making our own homemade yogurt, etc. In this case, we are using our beloved ingredient to make a smoothie. We chose 2% milk to bring balance to our diets. See our post on skim milk and whole milk should you debate which milk to use. 2% reduced-fat milk is a good source of calcium, Vitamin A and D, protein, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, magnesium, and zinc minerals.
We use a blender for this recipe. You could possibly try using a food processor or hand blender but I find the smoothie blender most convenient. If you haven’t purchased a blender by now, we strongly suggest you add this amazing kitchen appliance to your collection. You will not regret it. Check out our smoothie recipes here. They are all made with a blender! Moreover, read more on why smoothies are a healthy addition to your overall diet.

- Gather all ingredients
Make The Smoothie
- In a blender, combine 1 cup healthy apple crisp and 1 cup plain 2% reduced fat milk
- Blend well until all the ingredients are smooth and there are no chunks
- Serve cold
- This smoothie is delicious when served cold. You can also add some ice for extra texture, flavor, and coolness!
- This smoothie is nutritious so you get full pretty quickly. Hence, we make only 1 serving (about 16 oz) which fulls up my 2 kids pretty well. If you have more people coming you could possibly double the ingredients in the blender. Avoid overfilling the blender and if you need to make more than 2 serving, consider making 2 batches.
- We are extremely excited to announce we are now using the saferecipeguide.org guidelines to make our recipe safe-friendly. We will slowly be incorporating the safe recipe guidelines into our recipe instructions!
