Apple season is one of my favorites! Even though it’s probably the unpopular opinion, I think I like it more than pumpkin season. Gasp! I just really love going apple picking, hiking and seeing the changing leaves, making applesauce, drinking apple cider and apple cider donuts!

Being that apple pie is one of my favorites I thought, “Why not make that a smoothie?” I’ve never made a smoothie with apple in it before but once I did, I wondered why I’d waited so long! Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl -This smoothie bowl is perfect for utilizing all those yummy apples you just picked or those apples still rolling around your fridge!

I also have found a few different yogurt brands that have apple cinnamon flavors, which really adds to the fall flavors of this smoothie bowl. You could totally make this with plain or vanilla Greek yogurt, but if you want to go all out, I suggest the apple cinnamon!

I chose to top my smoothie bowl with some diced apples, pumpkin seeds and some old-fashioned oats, but this was what I had on hand at the time. You could use pecans or walnuts or chia seeds or hemp hearts. The possibilities are endless!
