Smoothie- Kid Style!

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by hollyfrolly

So cute and such an easy way to get your kiddies to eat a nutritious snack- or breakfast. Super delish on a hot summer day and a really fun way to have your kids help you "cook" in the kitchen. -Original recipe from Pillsbury Kids Cookbook

I have learned we are NOT a smoothie family. The taste was great (hence the 5 stars), but the texture was too weird for all four of us. Bummer. Thank you for sharing hollyfrolly!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces low-fat vanilla yogurt (2 8 ounce containers)
  • 14 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup strawberry (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 12 teaspoons Trix cereal, crushed
  • 1 cup ice, crushed works best


  1. These directions are over-simplified, for the kiddies --
  2. Using a rubber spatula, scrape out all of the yogurt from the containers into the blender.
  3. Using a liquid measuring cup, measure out the orange juice and add it to the blender.
  4. Measure out 1 cup of strawberries and add it to the blender.
  5. Peel the banana and use a table knife to cut it into chunks on a cutting board. Toss the banana into the blender.
  6. Measure out the ice and add it to the blender too.
  7. Give the mixture a gentle stir with a long wooded spoon or spatula.
  8. Put the lid on the blender and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  9. Pour the mixture into glasses and sprinkle the crushed Trix (or use fresh berries or mini- chocolate chips) onto the top.
  10. Use your favorite crazy straw to slurp it down!
