Most kids already love fruit smoothies, but you can make them special again by using frozen bananas as a base. Add a hint of vanilla and your favorite fruits and pulse into complete smoothness, adding a few ice cubes if necessary to thicken up the mixture. The smoothie takes on a creamy texture that’s as close as most kids will ever get to having ice cream for breakfast! Be sure to peel the bananas and break them into chunks before freezing.
|1 frozen (peeled) banana||1/2 teaspoon vanilla|
|1/2 cup orange juice||1-2 ice cubes, as needed|
|1/2 cup additional fruit, such as strawberries, blueberries, etc.|
Put the banana, juice, fruit and vanilla in a blender and blend to a smooth puree. With the machine running, use the feeder opening to drop in 1 or 2 ice cubes to thicken the smoothie further if desired.
