Hey Darlings! The kids and I joined our ministry for the month of January for a plant-based diet and although we implemented more plant-based meals in 2019 we were definitely up for the challenge. If I’m totally honest I am a lover of an ice cold Coca-Cola and in 2020 I’m working towards eliminating my soda intake so what better way to replace my habit then by adding more smoothies to my daily regimen. The kids and I have tried to make smoothies before but it was a huge fail so I decided to give it one more try. It became very evident that smoothies aren’t as hard to make as what I remembered our first go around.
The kids and I headed to the market to gather a few items to create our smoothies. We purchased fresh strawberries & mangoes, frozen berries & peaches, Low-Fat Vanilla yogurt and bananas. The kids and I decided to create a easy simple smoothie that’s kid approved and one thy could make right before school. We decided to make a Strawberry Banana Smoothie which has become the kids absolute favorite and after making it for the kids a few times they have finally gotten the hang of it and they’re making them like hotcakes over here everyday…..all day.
Let’s get into this Kid-Friendly recipe!
- 4-6 Fresh Strawberries (clean, tops removed and sliced in half)
- 1 ripe Banana (Sliced)
- 4 teaspoons of Low-Fat Vanilla Yogurt
- 3-4 pieces of Ice (Less if ice is large)
- Slice tops off of strawberries and cut in halves. Place in Magic Bullet.
- Slice Bananas in halves. Place on top of strawberries in Magic Bullet.
- Add Low-Fat Vanilla and then ice.
- Mix in Magic Bullet and Enjoy!
The kids had a ball creating their smoothies. I was surprised that it’s now become a routine for them every morning for them to make them a smoothie for their commute to school and then again as an after school treat. Surprisingly the smoothies has replaced their desire for juice boxed, sodas and powerade/gatorades
