My son and I love bananas but my daughter and husband despise them. I make a simple and yummy banana smoothie that my daughter (and now son) refer to as the 'Yucky Shake'. My son and I love to drink them together and I personally take joy in the fact that I only have to share with one child instead of two. See, when I make the smoothie, it is because I really want one and so it is nice that I usually get some of it when only on child is after me instead of two.
The Yucky Shake:
1 cup of 1% organic milk
1 ripe banana
A handful of ice.
Place all ingredients into a blender, first blend on 'ice crush', then give it a good spin on blend. Once frothy, pour into a cup and gulp, I mean slowly ingest.
Since I was thinking so much about smoothies, I decided that I need to start getting a bit more creative so I headed over to EatingWell Magazine . I found a link titled "Kid-Friendly' smoothies and made the 'The Wake-Up Smoothie' . It was dreamy. However, I thought it was definitely sweet enough so skip the sugar. Also, I used Stonyfield Oikos Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt in the recipe.
What you want more? The head over to Bookieboo.com later today (I am an editor) for more smoothie information and ideas.
