Smoothies are a healthy, delicious treat for breakfast, snack, or anytime! They are one of my families favorite treats, because my kids think they are eating ice cream for breakfast, but in truth I’ve hidden tons of nutrients inside. Plus, it’s something I can throw together with whatever I have on hand. It’s a great way to use up some extra fruit or yogurt.
Below is a generic recipe that you can customize to fit what you have on hand and what your family enjoys!
INGREDIENTS
1 Cup Plain (or Flavored) Yogurt (Fresh or Thawed)
1 Cup Juice, Water, or Ice
1-3 Cups Diced or Crushed Fruit &/Or Vegetables (Fresh or Frozen)
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve.
Try classic recipes like strawberry-banana, or mix it up and try something new like apricot-pineapple. Try tossing in a delicious spice like 1/8 tsp of cinnamon to add a new flavor to your mix. You can also add protein powder (1 TBSP), skim milk (1 TBSP), or flax seed (1 tsp) to make it healthier!
BANANA-ORANGE SMOOTHIE
1 Cup Plain Yogurt (Fresh or Thawed)
1 Cup Orange Juice
1 Cup Bananas (Fresh or Frozen)
1 Cup Strawberries (Fresh or Frozen) (optional)
TROPICAL SMOOTHIE
