I definitely love a quick, power-packed smoothie for busy mornings. It keeps you full and satisfied while the nutrients give you energy to handle to stresses of the day. I love adding oats to my morning smoothies. Along with my Strawberry Banana Morning Smoothie, this Banana Apple Oatmeal Smoothie is a frequent at my home. Oats are mild flavored however they add creaminess, fiber and protein. Perfect option to kick-start your day. Trust me… this is a good one.
This is one of my most frequent smoothies. It keeps you full and incredibly quick to make. My 2 year old often requests her ‘soothie’ for breakfast. With the added benefits of a raw carrot, I’m loving her choice for a healthy breakfast.
