I have not used sugar in this, but the natural sweetness from banana and dates has enhanced its taste many times.
Kids would like this healthy and delicious oats banana smoothie as I have given a chocolatey punch in it by adding their favorite chocolate chips. Adults can skip it, and I am assuring you that would not affect the taste of the smoothie. The perfect combination of carbohydrate, protein, and fat makes it one of the most preferable easy and quick healthy smoothie recipes for breakfast. Working moms who usually skip their breakfast due to a busy morning schedule can give it a try. Within 10 minutes only, super-delicious, healthy oats and banana smoothie gets ready to be consumed. Oats are rich in protein and fiber and make the smoothie thick and filling. Dates are rich in fiber, protein, vitamins, iron, and other nutrients. Most importantly, you can add as many fruits and nuts in this smoothie as per your taste and choice.

So you can realize how easy and quick this healthy smoothie recipe is. To enjoy a hassle-free morning, you must opt for this smart breakfast recipe. You can add apple into it and replace cashew with almonds. If you like a tangy flavor, you can add raisins also. Kids would love it as breakfast as well as a dessert at any time. If you are looking forward to a healthy smoothie recipe to lose weight, don’t use cashew as it is high in calories. But small quantity (4-5 a day) does not affect much, and as it is a good source of protein, it actually helps to lose weight. So, try this healthy smoothie recipe and share your feelings with us.
