( kids need their fats)
whole banana, peeled
( hehe, obvious)
1 tablespoon honey or 1 tablespoon sugar or 1 tablespoon
other artificial sweetener
1/4 cup plain yogurt or 1/4 cup
Frozen Add-ins can be any of the following
( I use this in almost all of the smoothies now)
1/4 cup frozen strawberries or 1/4 cup blueberries or 1/4 cup pineapple or 1/4 cup
frozen peas and carrot
- Pour milk into the blender.
- Add banana, sugar/honey/other, and then whatever frozen veggies AND a fruit to the blender. ***The key is you want to not go higher than halfway up a 5 cup blender or it gets too thick. Add milk or OJ if it gets too thick.
- Put blender on a high setting and let it go at it for a good minute or two. Pulse a few times to make sure it's at the "right" consistency (too your liking).
- Serve in a toddler friendly container--preferably something with a STRAW as they a) like straws and b) it helps with the intake of the smoothie. Do NOT put it in a sippy cup. Last warning -- my son had fresh kale in the first 3-4 of these I made and had some wicked black poo for days. Lets just say that was the end of the kale episode. ;).
