As a kid, my sister didn’t eat anything except macaroni and cheese. This presented a challenge for our mom, especially during breakfast when mac and cheese wasn’t on the menu. Then Mom started making smoothies for breakfast. For some reason, the fresh fruit in a bowl that my sister refused to eat was suddenly “so yummy” after being blended with yogurt, milk or even tofu—something my sister wouldn’t have otherwise touched with a 10-foot pole. And the best part for Mom, was that smoothies take 5 minutes or less to make.
Here are some kids’ breakfast-smoothie recipes all ready in 5 minutes or less:
Wake-Up Smoothie – You can jump-start your day in just minutes with this nutritious, tasty smoothie, which uses frozen berries. It provides vitamin C, fiber, potassium and soy protein.
Apricot Smoothie – Canned apricot halves blend with yogurt in this tangy and refreshing smoothie.
Banana-Berry Smoothie – This bright and easy breakfast packs two servings of fruit plus soy protein and fiber.
Strawberry Smoothie – Reminiscent of an old-fashioned strawberry milkshake, this smoothie delivers the flavor of cold, creamy luxury with the healthful benefits of fresh fruit and low-fat buttermilk.
Thermos-Ready Smoothie – A protein and fiber-rich drink to-go.
