This has to be one of Brady’s favorite things in the world!
He LOVES to make and drink the smoothies!
And if he didn’t love it enough before.
Now I have to listen to this bunch…
Do these kids haunt you too?
It’s the Fresh Beat Band and they like to hang out at the Groovy Smoothie and drink fruity concoctions.
And if that’s not enough….
That iCarly crew loves the fruity smoothies too.
So with the help of these shows…all my kids are into the smoothies!
Granted Brady loves fruit all kinds of ways but this is a treat for him.
And since he’s still milking the tonsil thing I’ve been making a bunch of these bad boys.
Now I’m all for making these with all those fresh berries that you can get at your local farms this time of year.
But I think smoothies are better with Frozen Berries!
That way I don’t have to use ice cubes to make them all nice and frothy!
FYI – those frozen berries work great for frozen margaritas too!
It is Friday after all…
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 cup frozen organic strawberries (or blackberries or any other kind of frozen fruit you have)
1 cup frozen organic blueberries
1 cup organic skim milk
1 cup organic low fat vanilla yogurt
2 T honey
1 t flax seed oil (this I just toss in because it’s just so darn good for you!)
WHAT TO DO:
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high for a minute or until smooth and creamy. Enjoy.
Feel free to try any combo of fruit you have. Bananas would make a great addition! Mango, pineapple, raspberry!
If you don’t have frozen fruit, just add a bunch of ice cubes to make it thick and smooth.
If you have picky eaters this is a great way to get some fruit into them. Who doesn’t love a smoothie?
And if you want…this is a fantastic place to add in a bit of frozen spinach for a little extra healthy punch.
