Total Comfort apple smoothie

total comfort apple smoothie


  • 240 ml (1 cup) milk (I used low-fat cow’s milk)
  • 1 medium banana, peeled
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and cut into large chunks
  • 6 dates
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix on high until you get a creamy smoothie.
  2. Before serving taste a spoonful of the smoothie to see if it needs more mixing.


These ingredients make one large and thick smoothie. It’s a great breakfast, but you can also divide it and make two servings (and share one with a friend).

Use any milk you like. When using milk in smoothies I usually go for rice, almond or cow’s milk, but I’ve had this smoothie before with oat milk too. I think rice or cow’s milk work best in this recipe though.

If you’re not in the mood for milk, apple juice or water are two good alternatives. But keep in mind that apple juice is usually very sweet on its own, so you might want to leave some of the dates out. Water is also great for diluting a very thick smoothie as it doesn’t alter the taste.

To make this smoothie extra cozy use warm milk instead.
