First I want to tell a little story, a few weeks ago my husband bought a Vitamix and for those who know this brand will know that this is the most popular blender at the moment, does much more than blending, is almost magical says my daughter. Well, my youngest daughter was so excited, she loves being in the kitchen with me, we were trying to see what kind of recipe we made first, my precious baby said she wanted a milkshake, I saw her very surprised because I did not know where she had seen that you could make smoothies and I saw that she had the recipe book in hand. We started to make the smoothie and everyone loved it, my Vitamix has officially become the tool of the smoothies. I made this smoothie the day that my daughter did not want anything to eat, she has only 3 years so sometimes it is difficult for her to eat. I try to use fruit that she likes and I add a couple of secret ingredients that nobody would notice. Some times we have to disguise some meals for the children. This is
- 1 1⁄2 cups nonfat milk
- 1 pint fresh strawberries
- 2 bananas, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
- 1⁄4 cup powdered milk
- 1⁄4 cup oatmeal
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 2 cups cracked ice
- In a blender combine all the ingredients until you have a smooth, thick texture.
- Serve immediately, preferably chilled glasses.
