Rated 5 out of 5 by otterheart from Really Pretty Good Apple "Pie" Smoothie Made this to recipe and good on it's own. Used Trader Joe's vanilla yogurt. Liked it and then added a bit of vanilla! mmmmm I didn't have "pumpkin pie spice" the blend but used cinnamon, clove, and fresh nutmeg. Ok it's not exactly to recipe but pretty darn close. I'll be making this more often!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sunnymonkey from yum! I had to cook the apples a little in water since my husband is mildly allergic to raw apples. It thinned out the smoothie a bit so next time i'll add more yogurt to compensate. I also put some gingersnap cookies to simulate a "crust" taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle76 from Apple pie in a glass! All our kiddos asked for 2nd & 3rds on this one. Tastes like apple pie in a glass our oldest said. Pretty yummy I must say. Didn't have "apple pie spice" but that's just basic...dash cinnamon, nutmeg & clove Is what I used used cause that's what was on hand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cairo from The taste of autumn! I love how this makes you grind your own spices - they always have a better punch when fresh. I have done a smoothie this way and it's really nice a fresh tasting - I also add a bit of fresh lemon and a pinch of salt for balance. On a not-so-healthy note you can make an apple pie milkshake too ... I use the apple pie I make (which also contains lemon juice and salt), a nip of ice cream, almond milk (or whatever milk you like!) and give it a buzz. It can even be a winter cocktail if you add a splash of apple jack and whiskey.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Erin Burns from Nope for me I don't know if it is the apples I am picking or just that I do not like apple smoothies, but no matter what I do it comes out mealy. Plus something in the spice combo doesn't settle right and I suspect it has to do with the absence of heat acting on the volatile oils. It is drinkable but I likely won't try this one again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MsAz from Pretty good, even without cardamom Was missing cardamom, but still came out all right. Replaced the tablespoon of brown sugar with maple syrup. A little confused by the instruction to mix spices in the Vitamix - maybe it's the model I have, but there was too little content for the spices to "mix" when I turned the machine on, so I just manually mixed them in a bowl. Might try bulking it up in the future with some oatmeal or frozen zucchini.
