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.
1 large banana
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.)
- Peel the banana and break it up into several pieces.
- Peel the avocado and remove the pit.
- Put the banana, avocado, milk, and sugar in the blender. Blend until creamy, about 15 to 25 seconds.
Pour your smoothie into glasses. Enjoy!
