Blend bananas by themselves and you'll be surprised how much moisture
is in them. If you do use juice, make sure it's a type that will
combine well with the rest of the ingredients and use the pulp in
something so you won't lose any of the nutrients. Use speckled ripe
bananas (no green). They're creamy.
There's nothing wrong with having a mid-morning snack. If you eat nuts
during the day, you'll slow your digestion and sap your energy. It's
better to eat nuts at the last meal of the day. Otherwise, make sure
you have at least four or five hours between meals.
Oats can be contaminated with aflatoxin. Personally, I don't eat any
grains except for sweet corn and I do that very seldom.
