This fruit smoothie mixes up quickly and will be a favorite of young kids. So this is a good way to nudge younger kids away from processed and refined snacks.
Of course, adults can also enjoy this quick and easy smoothie. This is another recipe with only four ingredients – keeping it sane and simple :-)
Keep in mind that the recipe calls for a frozen banana. This will need to freeze for at least overnight. I like to use the Press ‘n Seal type of plastic wrap from Glad when freezing a banana. I just tear off a piece of the wrap, cut a ripe banana into 1/2 inch pieces and lay them on the wrap with a little space in between each slice. Then I just wrap up the Press ‘n Seal and toss it in the freezer – it sticks together nicely.
This is great for an afternoon snack, but if you are watching your weight, I recommend you eat fruits or fruit smoothies, like this one in the morning to give your body a chance to burn off the natural sugars.
