apple pie a la mode.

my favorite food in the whole entire world is vanilla bean ice cream. i love it. even more than cereal, if you can believe it!

one of my favorite ways to enjoy vanilla bean ice cream is with a big slice of hot apple pie. i never was big on cake. let them have their cake. and eat it, too. i want some apple pie a la mode.

i love the flavor combination of vanilla, apple, and cinnamon. something about that trifecta of ingredients makes me weak in the knees. i could happily eat apple pie a la mode each and every day.


because it’s not conducive to maintaining my figure, i can’t very well eat apple pie a la mode every day of the week. but i can, however, make a healthier option. and that, my friends, is exactly what i did today.

yes, i should be packing for mexico.

yes, i still have to head to the gym.

yes, i have seven different errands to run.

but really, this recipe is way more important to share with you guys. i am leaving for mexico in just over twelve hours and i absolutely had to share this with you before i leave.

you may have heard about the new flavors of chobani. passion fruit, blood orange, and apple cinnamon.

apple cinnamon is my new favorite flavor of yogurt. no, not favorite flavor of chobani. my new favorite flavor of all the yogurt in all of the world. scratch that–make it in all of the universe! you never know, there could be yogurt on mars.

i used this new favorite of mine to blend up a healthy alternative to apple pie a la mode. the results were so delicious that i couldn’t believe what i was drinking was actually healthy.

Apple pie
makes two 16 oz shakes


  • 1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 container chobani apple cinnamon yogurt
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp guar gum (optional)
  • 10 ice cubes
  • whipped cream for garnish (optional)


  • combine all ingredients (except whipped cream) in a blender.
  • blend until smooth.
  • pour into two glasses–or one big one if you are greedy like me.
  • garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  • enjoy!

words can’t explain how much i love this shake. and yes, i drank both 16 oz servings. 16 oz was just all that would fit in my glass.. so i filled it. twice.

Apple yogurt is my MOST FAVORITE TOO! I haven’t been able to find the Chobani one yet and I could cry thinking about the days in which I have not gotten to partake! You are one lucky chick!

haven’t gotten the apple cinnamon flavor at my grocery store, but i can’t wait to try this recipe! wonder how this would work with the blood orange…

Maria January 30, 2012 at 8:05 pm

LOVE Chobani!! I can’t wait to get to the grocery store tomorrow and get the new flavors…..and particularly, to try this recipe!!

The apple cinnamon is really amazing yogurt!! I never really liked yogurt until i tried Chobani, and this flavor is the one of the better flavors they have. I think that I will try it without the protein power and almond milk and jsut use reg. milk, cinnamon and whipped cream with ice cubes and see what the result is. :)

Amanda January 30, 2012 at 9:02 pm

This looks amazing. I wish I had some vanilla protein powder on hand because if I did, I’d be making this right now!

Katrina January 31, 2012 at 12:33 am

I’d love to try the new Chobani flavors! :)

Shannon January 31, 2012 at 6:08 am

sounds awesome, and i totally need to try this :)

Shannon Fox January 31, 2012 at 7:14 am

Yum! Love the apple cinnamon! I’m on my way to the kitchen to try this right now. Thanks!

Deb January 31, 2012 at 8:02 am

I, too, LOVE, the taste of all 3– apple, cinnamon and vanilla! The very creative idea of making Chobani into a shake with those flavors, well, I just can’t contain my excitement. You know what I’ll be buying the next time I am at the market, that awesome new flavor or Chobani yogurt. Thanks for the tasty , healthy treat, and enjoy Hawaii! Say hi to the sea turtles for me!

Jennifer January 31, 2012 at 12:07 pm

I have been seeing these flavors all over the blog world, but unfortunately not in my stores! I would love to try the flavors :)

Renee January 31, 2012 at 2:16 pm

I just recently discovered the the awesomeness of Chobani yogurt! I eat one everyday for a snack between meals. I’m actually eating the blood orange flavor as I type this…..I’ve tried every flavor except the apple cinnamon, haven’t seen it yet. They are all amazing and so far I’ve been eating them with granola mixed in which is so yummy. I’m glad I visited this site, because now I have an awesome sounding protein shake recipe to try! Thanks for the tip!

Crystal January 31, 2012 at 5:45 pm

I can’t wait to try it! Sounds yummy!

Hannah (Hannah Lives) January 31, 2012 at 5:52 pm

This sounds soooo good! But I almost want to add more apple flavor somehow!

kerry January 31, 2012 at 6:51 pm

just tried this flavor for the first time last week-can’t WAIT to make this smoothie!

Kris January 31, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Yum, that apple cinnamon shake is drool-worthy for sure!

Sarah January 31, 2012 at 8:24 pm

I would love to try this shake! I love vanilla bean ice cream too.

Suzanne February 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Oh my gosh, I have to try that! But I haven’t been able to find the apple pie flavor…where did you find yours?

Brittany February 2, 2012 at 11:24 am

I love everything apple pie. I worked at Cold Stone Creamery in college and always ate the apple pie a la mode flavor. It had sweet cream ice cream, apple pie filling and graham crackers mixed into it. So so so good. Plus a la mode always makes me think of Little Miss Sunshine – one my favorite movies.

And YES, the Apple Pie Chobani flavor is amazing! I absolutely LOVE IT! I can’t wait to try this smoothie! :)

melissa b February 2, 2012 at 1:40 pm

I LOVE is amazing!

Priya February 2, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I’d love to try the new flavors!

marthah February 3, 2012 at 6:06 am

Sarah February 3, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Ooh, I want to make that shake! Apple pie in smoothie form? Apple pie in healthy form? I’ll take it!

Elena February 3, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Would love to try Chobani!

Mallory February 4, 2012 at 5:47 pm

i NEED to find that flavor!!

Stacy February 4, 2012 at 7:14 pm

This recipe looks delicious!!!

ANDREA February 7, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Apple pie….. yum!!

Katie February 13, 2012 at 8:48 am

That shake was the best post-workout meal ever! I drank both servings too. :) I made it in my new Vita-Mix and I am in love! I never buy the sweetened Chobani because I am thinking it’s too much sugar, but for post-workout, this was perfect fuel for my muscles! I am now going to grab a few flavors when I go to the grocery so I can have quick and tasty post-workout shakes. I am thinking pineapple Chobani with coconut extract would be good! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Ethelyn Rainosek August 6, 2012 at 8:17 pm

Tried Chobani for the first time tonight, LOVED IT, had the peach and added my own peach preserves, um-m-m! Then I found your recipe for apple cinnamon shake and off I ran to the market again and I loaded up with many 0% flavors to try. An interesting side reward—it stopped my reflux. Wow!!!! Will be having that apple cinnamon breakfast tomorrow. Love your blog, Ethelyn
