Family Recipe: Banana Breakfast Bash

You don't need ice cream or frozen yogurt to make smoothies. Here is a healthy Banana Breakfast Bash recipe from FIT's Chef Lizzie. Try making it at home with your kids.

This Recipe Is:
  • 1   large
  • 1  
    ripe avocado
  • 8 to 10   ounces
    reduced-fat milk (Chef Lizzie likes to use a nondairy milk like oat, almond, or soy.)
  • 2   tablespoons
    sugar or honey (A little honey accents the fruit flavor -- like salt accents the flavor of foods.)
  1. Peel the banana and break it up into several pieces. 
  2. Peel the avocado and remove the pit. 
  3. Put the banana, avocado, milk, and sugar in the blender. Blend until creamy, about 15 to 25 seconds.

Pour your smoothie into glasses. Enjoy!
