Kids love smoothies! This Blue Banana Smoothie has a surprise ingredient that adds more nutrition while still being delicious.

Ingredients

8 ounces milk (use your favorite such as fat-free, low-fat, reduced-fat, almond, soy)
½ cup frozen banana slices
½ cup frozen blueberries

Directions

In blender, puree everything until smooth. Serve immediately.

Cooking Tip

The frozen fruit gives the smoothie a thick texture. Add water if you want a thinner consistency or add ice if you want it even thicker.

Add "smoothie boosts" such as fresh baby spinach (1 cup), plain low-fat yogurt (½ cup), oatmeal (¼ cup), ground flaxseeds (1 to 2 tablespoons), unsweetened cocoa powder (1 tablespoon), honey (to taste) or cinnamon (to taste).
