This Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl Is Like Dessert for Breakfast

Why save apple pie for Thanksgiving dessert when you can have it for breakfast every day? This apple pie smoothie bowl recipe will fill you up and take care of that craving for sweets—but the best part is that it's 100 percent healthy and has real classic apple pie flavor.

We'll bet you already have the ingredients at home, too. All you need is a frozen banana, nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt, unsweetened applesauce, rolled oats, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and unsweetened almond milk. In the mood for a dash of green? Add an optional handful of spinach or kale. Then, for some bonus points, extra crunch, and some Pinterest-worthy aesthetics, sprinkle with toppings like chopped apples, chia seeds, and some granola or pecans. (Here are some smoothie bowls under 500 calories that'll give you some serious design inspiration.)

Want to make it a vegan smoothie bowl? Ditch the Greek yogurt and add more almond milk. (Or, if you want recipes that were specifically formulated to be vegan, check out these soy-free high-protein vegan smoothies.) Want to make it Paleo-friendly? Nix the Greek yogurt as well as the rolled oats. (P.S. Here's what going Paleo might do to your body.)

With 15 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, and 350 calories, this apple pie smoothie bowl makes a perfect breakfast (or lunch, for that matter). Looking for a lighter way to enjoy apple pie for dessert? You've officially met your match.

And quick—before fall is over, you need to try these delicious and creative apple recipes and this superfood açaí smoothie bowl that tastes like autumn.
