Two of my three kids love smoothies, but each has a favorite. My son’s go-to smoothie is this Chocolate Banana Smoothie I posted eons ago. Even though it sounds like dessert, I have no problem letting him have it for breakfast, as the primary ingredients are yogurt, banana and a raw egg for protein.
My daughter, on the other hand, is all about the fruit. This Strawberry Blueberry Banana Smoothie was her own concoction.
We always keep frozen bananas in the fridge for smoothie purposes. Now, if you want to go all healthy green smoothie on me, I have one of those for you too. But this is more like dessert for breakfast. Who says I’m never a cool mom???
For the strawberry blueberry banana version, we started with our typical frozen banana and cup of yogurt. And to that we added a cup of fresh organic strawberries and a half cup of blueberries. We also added some milk to make it the right consistency because it was pretty thick otherwise. You could certainly use coconut milk for the nutrition. Finish off with ice and we’re good to go! If you use frozen strawberries and blueberries and banana, you may not need to add ice.
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
