My kids love fruit smoothies. They are a great snack on a hot summer day. There is really no wrong way to make them. I use some sort of frozen fruit to make it cold, then maybe some fresh fruit, and some yogurt. I throw it all into the blender. It is indeed that easy.
I found the cutest little mason jar glasses on Main Street at my local hardware store. What a find! Adding little drink umbrellas and a straws make them a really fun treat!
This is what I used to make today's smoothies, but like I said just experiment with whatever ingredients you have on hand.
I used half a bag of frozen mixed berries, 2 bananas, and vanilla yogurt. I made two batches so I would have leftovers to freeze. I use plastic freezer jars. That way I will have some for quick breakfasts too. I take them out of the freezer when I wake up and by the time my kids are awake, they are thawed enough for breakfast. Here is a link to a smoothie lunch I packed. They work great in lunches! Pack one in a cooler lunch bag and by lunch they are all ready to eat! Meet the Dubiens has a great smoothie post too!
Here they are in the freezer.
They are always a favorite!
