Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

Makes 1-2 servings

Apple Crisp Smoothie

Makes 1-2 servings

This smoothie literally made history in my house.  Despite my son loving many different kinds of fruit, for some reason he didn’t like any other smoothie combination until I made this one.  He is obsessed with apples, so I decided to come up with a smoothie that tasted like apple crisp and he LOVES it!  It’s truly delicious and packed with protein and fiber, making it a great breakfast or after school snack.  I also love this smoothie because I can try to sneak in a little bit of green with avocado or spinach.  The avocado will make the smoothie even creamier and neither the spinach nor the avocado will change the taste at all.  And if needed I can simply explain that the hint of green is from using granny smith apples!

Ingredients:

  • 2 large honey crisp apples
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup organic plain yogurt
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseeds
  • 3-4 ice cubes

Preparation:

  • Add all smoothie ingredients to high-powered blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
