Who says that smoothies are only for the summer?
One of our favorite activities as a family is to create fun smoothies together.
We had a fun time making this. Don’t worry if your littles don’t enjoy all of the fruits in the original recipe, just substitute what you need!
2 large Bananas (peeled)
1 cup of Blueberries
2 cups Milk – I used 2% organic, to cut back on calories you can use Fat-Free
1 cup Apple Juice
Sprinkles of your (or your child’s) choosing
1) Blend bananas, blueberries, milk, and apple juice together in the blender until smooth.
2) Coat the rim of the glass of your choosing with honey either by drizzling it on or painting it on with a pastry brush
3) pour enough sprinkles into a small bowl so that there is enough to cover the bottom.
4) Turn the glass with the honey coated rim over and place honey coated rim in the sprinkles. It helps to wiggle the glass back and forth a little bit to make sure you get sprinkles all over the rim.
5)Pour blended smoothie mixture into sprinkled rimmed glass and enjoy!
Makes 5 eight ounce servings
For a cooler thicker smoothie you can add ice cubes before blending.
