Apple cinnamon shake recipe

The traditional flavor combination of apple and cinnamon is not only great as a desert but also a cold smoothie after a tough workout or as a balanced afternoon snack.

Apples are a great source of vitamin C and various antioxidants to help support the immune system, and cinnamon has been shown to help lower blood sugar and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Servings: 1


  • 1 scoop Onnit Grass-Fed Whey or Plant-Based Protein, vanilla
  • 1 apple, peeled and cored
  • ½ banana, frozen
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 8 ounces unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup ice


Blend all ingredients together, pour, and enjoy.

Personalization tips

  • High-protein pre- or post-workout option: Just 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds adds extra 7 grams of protein and 9 grams of healthy fat.
  • High-fiber breakfast: Swap the maple syrup for ½ cup of old-fashioned rolled oats and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. This will add about 10 grams of fiber to your smoothie to start your morning off right.
