  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 bag of frozen fruit (preferably “fruit of the forest”-blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc. if you want to use other more tropical fruit, that’s fine too, but be careful about the tartness of the fruits you choose to blend together)
  • 1/3 c orange juice
  • 1 apple
  • 1 small container plain or vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • (To sneak in for extra healthiness: )
  • -flaxseed (1 tbs)
  • -cod liver or fish oil (1 tbs)
  • -ice (only if needed for texture)

Directions

  • Blend frozen fruit, apple and orange juice in a blender (or with a hand blender)
  • Once blended, add yogurt to taste (some kids may like it more or less yogurt-y) and ice if needed, and re-blend
  • If you can sneak it in—go for the cod liver oil and/or flaxseed! (Blend WELL after adding these—if you do, they shouldn’t taste them))
  • Serve it up! (For extra fun, serve with a thick straw, a slice of fresh orange and a cocktail umbrella—kids love to play with them!)

Notes

If fresh fruit is out of season-no worries—frozen fruit works just fine—and it’s already chilled for the smoothie!
