Don’tcha just love when your kids ask for a treat they think is yummy and it’s secretly good for them?
Enter the smoothie!!!
Now, I haven’t yet ventured into the world of wheat germ or other secret healthy ingredients. But even so, how much better can a smoothie be? Milk! Calcium! Protein! Fruits! Vitamins! Load it up!
I’ve found my smoothies work best with a 1:1 milk to vanilla yogurt (not frozen) ratio, and then fruit added to taste. Depending on the amount of fruit, you might need to up the yogurt. Right now the kids are all about strawberry smoothies, but for a while we were peanut butter and banana fans. Throw everything in a blender and off you go.
I mean, seriously! Three or four ingredients in a snack that are good for them??? What’s not to love? Not to mention it’s almost time for strawberry AND blueberry picking again.
Do you smoothie? What’s your favorite recipe?
