Easy Banana Apple Smoothie

A smoothie with apples and bananas is the best of both worlds. Both the apples and bananas taste slightly sweet, and the cinnamon and nutmeg give the smoothie a touch of warmness.

The warmth is subtle, but it really makes a huge difference in helping to balance the other flavors! Yogurt creates a silky consistency and also helps to make the smoothie a bit more protein packed and filling.

Oh, and I can’t forget about the oats! There’s just enough oats in the mix to give this smoothie some thickness and added texture.

While the flavors are perfect for fall, this smoothie is fantastic any time of year!

Quick Tips

  • Frozen bananas: Use store-bought frozen bananas that are pre-sliced to save on prep time. You’ll need about 1 ½ cups.
  • Protein powder: Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to boost this smoothie. Just pour in a little almond milk or oat milk to balance the consistency.
  • Different flavors: Skip the cinnamon and nutmeg, and toss in frozen pineapple, mango, a scoop of almond butter, or baby spinach for a different flavor variation.


Freezer: Apple banana smoothies are best consumed fresh. If you have any leftovers, freeze them in an ice cube tray, transfer to a freezer bag, and store for up to 2 months.

Blend the ingredients into a smoothie bowl and top with your favorites when you’re ready to enjoy them again.

If you prefer a sweeter taste, you can add to the smoothie’s natural sweetness with a variety of options. Honey, agave nectar or maple syrup are excellent natural sweeteners that can be added according to taste.

For other options, consider using a small amount of stevia or monk fruit. When adding any sweetener, do so gradually and taste as you go, to make sure you get the right balance.

For this smoothie, you want to choose apples that complement the sweetness of the banana. Tart apples such as Granny Smith can add a fresh zing, while sweeter varieties like Honeycrisp, Gala, or Fuji contribute to a naturally sweet flavor profile.

Ultimately, the choice of apple is based on personal preference and the desired sweetness of the smoothie. If you opt for tart apples, you may need to add a bit more of your chosen sweetener to balance the flavors.

Peeling apples before adding them to the blender is not necessary and mostly comes down to personal preference. The skin of the apple contains nutrients and fiber, which can contribute additional health benefits to your smoothie.

However, if you find the texture of the apple skin to be too coarse for your liking, or if you’re using apples with a particularly thick skin, you might opt to peel them.
