I love healthy smoothies whether it is in the morning, noon, or night but especially for a quick breakfast.

I also really like to have them before I work out because they are great for energy or sometimes even for lunch. 

This apple banana oat smoothie is loaded with goodness and nutrients to start your day off right and keep you full all morning.

I got lucky to have a kid who loves fruits and vegetables. Crazy right?!

However, I know there are tons of moms who fight their kids to eat anything that looks like a fruit, smells like a vegetable, or the color green.

The struggle is real folks!

There is also one other thing I know and it is that kids love ice cream and sweet stuff.

We don't have to tell them that the sweet and creamy stuff is really just a bunch of fruits or vegetables blended up.

So if you are looking for a way to add fruits or veggies into your kid's diet (or even your own, picky eaters) then having a creamy and delicious smoothie is definitely the way to go.  

One of my favorite recipes to do that is this banana apple oat smoothie.

Some questions you may have

Do you peel apples for smoothies?

If you choose to leave the skin on the apple it will slightly change the texture of your smoothie.

However, the skin offers all of the vitamins and nutrients of the fruit. I highly recommend keeping the skin.

Can I put banana peels in my smoothie?

Although the answer is yes you can, a banana peel will affect the taste of your smoothie. It is slightly bitter.

Is an Apple Banana Soothie good for weight loss?

Yes, a lot of people enjoy smoothies as a healthy way to help them reach their weight loss goals.

Apple and banana smoothies are healthy and nutritious drinks that can be enjoyed as a convenient breakfast option or a quick snack.
