Apple Pie Smoothie – doesn’t that just sound heavenly??? It might not look like much after being blended all up – but trust me on the fact that this Low Histamine Apple Pie Smoothie tastes divine and will make any rainy day be instantly better 😀
It is quick and easy to make, but does require a good blender. I know I couldn’t live without my blender, and it is used almost daily. Well at the moment it is used in the weekends, since I currently have to be away from home during the week days, and oh do I miss my blender during the week. I tried making this smoothie using a cheap hand held blender, and lets just say – it was not a hit……
Making this divine Low Histamine Apple Pie Smoothie is easy and straight forward. Simply add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend till you have a silky smooth smoothie. Pour into a tall glas, add a festive straw if you like and just sit back and enjoy 😉
Low Histamine Apple Pie Smoothie
- Prep Time: 10 min
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 1 1x
A little slice of Apple Pie heaven in smoothie form – YUM
- 1 (sweet) apple (ca. 130 g/ 4.6 oz)
- 1 (dried) date
- 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower (ca. 60–70 g/ 2.3 oz)
- 2 tbsp rolled oats
- 1 tbsp macadamia nut butter*
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)*
- 1–2 g ginger (0.03–0.07 oz)
- 1 cup (plant based) milk of choice
- 1 tbsp collagen (optional)*
- Add all ingredients to a high speed blender
- Blend till you have a silky smooth smoothie.
- Pour into a tall glass, add a festive straw if you like and just sit back and enjoy 😉
- I like to use macadamia nut butter, you can use any tolerated nut butter or tigernut butter for a nut free version.
- Cinnamon is high in benzoates, and if you are sensitive to that it can trigger the release of histamine. If you don’t tolerate cinnamon just leave it out.
- Collagen is great for gut health, but not tolerated by everyone. If you don’t tolerate it just leave it out.

Can you buy Macadamia Nutbutter in Holland?
I buy it at the “Olienoot” at the market in Eindhoven. You can also make it yourself 😀 Other than at the olienoot I haven’t seen it anywhere else, here in the Netherlands. If you don’t live near any markets with an “Olienoot” vendor, and you don’t wanna make it yourself, you can order it from amazon. Link to macadamia nut butter via amazon.uk.co here.

Apparently Unlimited Health also has it. I really have to google more.
I just finished drinking this smoothie. Oh, wow, is this fabulous!! I used peanut butter, 1/8 teaspoon each of ginger and cinnamon, almond milk, an Opal apple and whole rolled oats. Included a large Medjool date. How is it possible that you CANNOT taste the cauliflower?! This tasted decadent, not healthy. So wonderful. Yay!
Hi Erin 🙂
Thank you for all of your great comments 🙂 They have really made my day <3 I'm also totally in love with this apple pie smoothie, it is perfect for that kind of rainy Sunday morning, where you just want to feel comforted. And has for sure been my favorite this winter 😀 Have you gotten your hands on my free eBook yet, with smoothie recipes, I have a feeling you'll love the Mango Lassi. And make sure you also check out my blackberry smoothie, the golden Mango smoothie and the Moringa smoothie bowl.
Have a lovely Day,
Hi there – just discovered your blog and am looking forward to trying some of your delicious looking recipes. This one has me intrigued – cauliflower in a smoothie?!? I’m keen to try but not sure whether the frozen cauliflower is meant to be raw or cooked before freezing? Or perhaps it can be either? Many thanks, Holly
The cauliflower gives the smoothie a creamy texture. I buy the cauliflower pre frozen, I believe it is pre steamed. If you can’t buy it pre frozen, I would recommend pre steaming it slightly before freezing it. I think this will ensure the most smooth texture 😀
I hope you will find some inspiration and enjoy the recipes 😀 Happy to have you reading along 😀 And I hope you’ll keep on commenting 😀
Excellent recipe. So enjoy all of your recipes ?
OMG just found your site as well. I am having a year long battle with chronic hives so I figure anything I can do to help alleviate some histimine in my system has to be good. Too bad doctors don’t go the route of diet first! But this smoothie is going to be my ‘go to’ breakfast I can tell. I used the cauliflower rice that is all the rage. It worked wonderfully. Thank you so much for your work on these recipes.
Thank you so much Margaret for sharing and taking time out to write this comment 🙂 I hope you’ll find many new favorites here on the blog 🙂
Hello! and thanks for the recipes and informative blog.
I am wondering about the cinnamon – I have MCAS and cannot tolerate many of those delicious ‘warm’ spices because they are either histamine liberators, block Diamine Oxidase, or actually contain histamines. I get a hot red face and hives. Do you find the cinnamon doesn’t affect you?
I tried this smoothie with cardamom and rose geranium-infused honey instead of the date. It was tasty and no reaction. The texture from the cauliflower was delightful.
Those sounds like delicious adaptions of the recipe.
Personally I’m fine with cinnamon. As far as I know/have understood about half of the people dealing with Histamine intolerance can tolerate cinnamon and the other half can’t. Cinnamon is high in benzoates, and if you are sensitive to that it can trigger the release of histamine.
Both dates and collagen are high histamine foods and cinnamon is a histamine liberator. This recipe sounds delicious, but shouldn’t be labeled ‘low histamine’.
The collagen and cinnamon is listed as optional, you can just leave them out. As for the date, you can replace it with a 1/2-1 teaspoon of a tolerated liquid sweetener.
P.S. I added disclaimers to the recipe in the recipe notes section.
