My kids LOVE smoothies! Actually, Liam thinks any cup with a straw is the coolest thing ever, but since we get to drink smoothies with a straw and they taste so darn yummy, he's extra happy about that. Here is my go-to "recipe" for smoothies. I use quotation marks because it is hard for me to measure exactly how much of everything I use, but you can get the gist of it and make it yourself! It'll taste great, believe me.
1/2-1 banana, ripened
3-5 strawberries, depending on the size and how much you would like
ice, 4-5 cubes
In a blender, combine ice cubes, banana, strawberries and about 1/2 cup of orange juice. Blend until smooth.
Tip: I like to make sure my ice cubes are closest to the blade, that way they get chopped up really well. Also, I often throw in whatever fruit I have lying around: blackberries, blueberries, peaches, etc. It's a great way to get fruit into their system!
Another favorite thing: We have a Bullet. It's a miniature blender that makes individual sized drinks, and that is what I typically use when making smoothies. One Bullet cup is perfect for my two kiddos to share.
