Smoothies are a delicious and easy way to get in a healthy dose of fruits (and vegetables!) into your diet. My eleven year old daughter loves smoothies and insisted we share one of her favourite recipes that she began making herself (with a little supervision) a few years ago. She loves smoothies as part of her morning breakfast and sometimes makes enough for several smoothies to either share or save for later. You can also freeze the blended mix into popsicle moulds for a tasty frozen treat! The below is her recipe as written by her and she also took the pictures. :)
Kid-Approved Frozen Fruit Smoothie
The main ingredient is frozen fruit! We buy whatever is on sale that week, but mango is always in the recipe because it tastes the best.
1 avocado (or 1 medium banana) - this makes the smoothie creamy
1 cup frozen berries
1/2 cup frozen mango!
1/4 cup of vanilla or your favourite yogurt (or one of the small lunch containers)
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup of water or milk (or more depending on how much frozen fruit you used - sometimes I put in too much and it jams the blender)
My mom sometimes adds some spinach or kale. I don’t.
Blend all ingredient until smooth then pour into a big cup and enjoy! Or if you made too much put it in the fridge for later. Yum!
