What Type of Apple Should I Use for the Smoothie?

You can use any variety of apples that you have on hand. Sweet and crisp apples like Fuji, Gala and Honeycrisp would work well here, but you can also use Granny Smith for its sharp, tart flavor. Read more about apple varieties and how to choose the perfect apple for recipes.

Should I Peel the Apple for the Smoothie?

There's no need to peel the apple for this recipe—simply remove the core and seeds. The whole fruit, peel and all, is nutritious and includes fiber that will help keep you satisfied. Read more about the health benefits of apples.

Can I Swap in a Different Nut Butter?

Of course! We recommend using nut butters with a "natural" label. Confirm that the ingredients are just nuts and salt (or no salt).

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
