Meal Replacer Smoothies for Kids

Once a week for breakfast, usually on grocery shopping day (Wednesday), I serve smoothies for breakfast - they drink them quickly, I can serve them to my baby and there are very few leftovers!

Here are my top three recipes:

Chocolate Banana Swirl
2 Frozen Bananas
2 Cups Whole Milk (or Milk Substitute)
2 tablespoons of peanut (or almond) butter
(optional) 2 tablespoons of chocolate powder

Blend until smooth.  Makes four 8 oz servings

Berry Surprise
2 frozen bananas
2 cups whole milk (or milk substitute)
1 cup berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or strawberries - frozen or not)
1/2 an avocado (This is the surprise portion! Shh! I don't tell them about this part)

Blend until smooth. Makes four 8 oz servings

Sweet Potato Smoothie
1 large sweet potato baked, peeled and mashed
2 frozen bananas
2 cups of whole milk (or milk substitute)
2 tsp cinnamon

Blend until smooth. Makes four 8 oz
