My basic recipe: Banana Berry PB&YO
- 1 full banana
- 3 strawberries
- small handful of blueberries
- 4oz yogurt
- Tablespoon peanut butter
- splash of almond milk
I do all organic ingredients but that is up to you. Chop up the banana in about 3-4 chunks- toss in blender. Cut off tops of strawberries, chop up strawberries- toss in blender. Toss in the blueberries, yogurt, and peanut butter. I always start off with a small splash of almond milk (or regular milk if you want) so that I can keep the texture right. Blend on a low speed for about 10 seconds and then blend on a high speed. If the smoothie is too thick, add another splash of milk and blend again. Then ENJOY!
This smoothie is great because your little one (or you) is getting a fruit serving, a diary serving, and protein! Not to mention it's a healthy snack, taste amazing, and who doesn't love smoothies?!
On the days my daughter is being picky with veggies, I hide some carrots, tomatoes, green peppers, etc. in with the fruit. As long as you choose 1-2 veggies per 2-3 fruits, the veggie flavor should be masked pretty well and your little one wont even noticed!
