Like drinking apple pie without all the guilt! This Apple Banana Smoothie is thick, fruity, and really easy to make using common ingredients!
My kids are big fans of smoothies. They go through phases when they want them all the time, then other times forget them completely. But if they see the blender going, they know there’s a pretty good chance it’s a smoothie and their heads pop up to have a look.
I’ve made a number of different smoothies before and most of them have become quick favorites like my easy dairy free green smoothie. I also can’t wait to try some more like this healthy blueberry smoothie with rolled oats and might get the kids involved making a green apple smoothie.
Apple is not particularly common in smoothies as it seems some people find it gritty. However I’ve had success before in my wild blueberry apple crumble smoothie bowl when I combined it with oats and yogurt. I think the added thickening of the oats helps avoid any gritty taste.
The same is true here, but with the banana as well, it makes a deliciously naturally sweet smoothie. A pinch of cinnamon adds that warm taste of fall to this Apple Banana Smoothie recipe.
How to make our Apple Banana Smoothie
Making this apple banana smoothie couldn’t be easier. All you do is:
- Peel and core an apple and peel a banana;
- Put the apple juice, yogurt, apple, banana, oats, and cinnamon in a blender;

Smoothies are a great quick and easy way to fuel you up for the day or to have a satisfying snack without the effort. Plus smoothies are great for getting those who might not be that in to fruit to eat some, or in my kids’ case, enjoy more fruit. This apple banana smoothie is an easy and delicious combination your whole family will love.
