Smoothies are fun to make with kids and include a variety of fruit in their diet. I let them pour everything in and making sure the lid is on tight, they get to push the button.
My favorite smoothie uses frozen strawberries and blueberries, plain yogurt, a splash of orange juice, fresh or frozen bananas and sometimes milk. If there are any leftovers, pour them in some Dixie cups and add sticks to make Popsicles in the freezer.
Smoothies use up the fruit bowl like soup cleans out the refrigerator. If bananas are getting spotty, I freeze them for later or throw them in the blender. Dan makes an awesome banana smoothie with yogurt, honey and vanilla. It is so good!
Smoothies are a versatile treat. I serve them for breakfast, snacks and dessert. You can sneak secret ingredients like flax oil in and nobody knows they are there. Carrot juice alone is one thing. Blend it with frozen strawberries, and the reception is completely different.
