Kids in the Kitchen: Smoothie Time - Berry Blast & Peanut Butter Banana


Kids in the Kitchen: Smoothie Time

/ / Articles, Blog

The days are getting warmer, longer, and the kids are getting sweaty.  When the weather gets nice, one of my kiddos’ favorite treats is yogurt smoothies.  We have made a few different flavors over the years, and have a few favorites. 

Smoothies are easy to make (even with kiddos) and inexpensive. 

My kiddos’ top two favorites are: Berry Blast and Peanut Butter Banana.

To make Berry Blast:

What you will need

  • 1 bag of frozen berries (we like the berry blend at Aldi’s)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup Yogurt (we like plain Greek, but any flavor or style will do)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup Milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • Blender
  • Cups, Straws, or Silicone Molds

To make Peanut Butter Banana

What you will need

  • 2 Frozen Bananas
  • 1/2 to 1 cup Yogurt (we like plain Greek, but any flavor or style will do)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup Milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Peanut Butter or 2 Tbs Peanut Butter Powder (more or less depending on your Peanut Butter preference) (can also use any nut butter)
  • Blender
  • Cups, Straws, or Silicone Molds

(Both recipes can be modified to your dietary needs)

Step 1

Pour half the milk in the bottom of your blender.

Step 2

Add yogurt on top of milk.

Step 3

Add Frozen Fruit (for Berry Blast).

Step 4

Step 5

Make sure you put the lid on.

Step 6

Blend it all up!

Step 7

Add in more yogurt or milk to reach your desired thickness.

Step 8

Serve and enjoy!

Have extra leftover or don’t plan on drinking the smoothie right now? Add the smoothie to your favorite silicone mold or Popsicle mold to freeze and enjoy later. 

Do you have a favorite smoothie? Share your favorite blends.  Or make these two recipes your own; you can even add some jam to the Peanut Butter Banana to make a PBJ smoothie.
