The Grandkids (age 2 and 6) are here for the weekend. I asked my Granddaughter what we should make for my blog today. Well she loves my home grown blueberries. She eats them frozen all year long from our freezer. She said “How about blueberry cake?” That was a winner for me however, when she said blueberry it reminded me of the smoothies I use to make for her all the time. I don’t know why I stopped. I told her to pick which one she wanted and as you see, it was the smoothie.
Of course she didn’t want to wait for me to make the smoothie. Why do kids think food just magically appears? Probably because of how fast it disappears! When I started taking pictures of the process for my blog and she just rolled her eyes and said “Oh Grandma you always have to take pictures!”
Smoothies can be made with almost any fruit or vegetable. Just use your favorite combination and don’t be afraid to play around with different ingredients and quantities to get just the right taste for you. Here is my favorite combination and how I make it.
Only four ingredients……simple but delicious!
First, put the yogurt into a blender.
Add the apple juice.
Add the sliced banana.
Turn the blender on high until thoroughly mixed.
Add the frozen blueberries and blend just until the blueberries are all chopped up.
Top with whole blueberries and serve immediately.
1 medium banana, sliced
1 blueberry yogurt
6 oz 100% apple juice
1 – 1/2 cups frozen blueberry
Place yogurt into a blender. Add apple juice and sliced bananas. Place the lid on and turn the blender on high just until thoroughly mixed. Add the frozen blueberries and blend on high just until the blueberries are all chopped up. Add whole blueberries on top and serve immediately.
