smoothie time

we are in smoothie love season here...
so here's how we do it, and i promise if you are a fruit fan, you will love love love
our certified crazy fam smoothie:
{warning...i'm not so much into the measuring thing, so it's more of a dump, mix and try it thing}

1 cup fat free vanilla yogurt
1 cup milk
1 banana {i slice and freeze banana's when they are turning}
1 1 /2 cups mixed fruit {in this case, a cereal bowl of frozen berries is what i had on hand}

dump everything in the blender, using all your handy helpers, of course, and liquefy.

this makes 3 cups of smoothies...and if you want your smoothie not as thick, add a little more milk.

the girls love it...a full serving of fruit and dairy in every cup! and, it's teaching the girlie pies good eating habits and they are kitchen helpers too....and let's just say, it's purple and that is a whole bonus in and of itself!!!
as a side note, i like them a little thicker for the kiddos...
keeps their little mouths busy for longer and there's a little more quiet time around here.
so drink up...and enjoy the quiet time smoothies!

I like smoothies, but I can't stand the taste of yogurt and I really wish I did, I know it's good for me. Do you have a recommendation for a good brand that isn't too strong?

CC said...

that's almost my exact recipe! But I throw in some grated carrots and wheat bran so that I can make it just slightly healthier.

but it isn't smoothie season for us until summer!!

If you haven’t already, make sure to visit my giveaway!
