With the picky eater that is my soon-to-be-second-grader, sometimes it's a challenge coming up with a breakfast that will get him through the morning. Smoothies are a great way to get fruit, protein and calcium into those little tummies to start the day off right. The great thing about smoothies is that the fruit and veggie combinations are endless. Our fruit combo of choice is banana/strawberry/blueberry.
(These measurements are all approximate. I never use a measuring cup so this is my best guess)
- 1 banana
- 4 strawberries
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1 cup greek yogurt (vanilla or strawberry flavor)
- 1 Tbs. Wheat Germ
- 1 generous scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder or 1 package of Carnation Instant Breakfast
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup of ice (optional, this will make it more thick)
- Combine everything in a blender and blend until…blended.
This smoothie plus a bowl of Cherrios and I get the "good mommy" badge for the day.
