My son loves drinking smoothies and lately I have been letting him make his own. Today, he made a Chocolate Banana Smoothie. All you need to make it is: a banana, milk, chocolate syrup, and ice. He starts by tearing apart the banana and placing it in the blender. I place the milk in a cup for him to pour into it and the ice in a cup for him to dump in. His favorite part is squeezing the chocolate syrup and pushing the buttons to blend it! I tried to be fancy by swirling the syrup around the glass before pouring it in, but it didn’t turn out quite like I expected.
We also regularly make Fruit Smoothies. The main ingredients I use to make it is vanilla yogurt, orange juice (sometimes apple or cherry juice), a banana, and whatever other fruit I happen to have on hand. I always use bananas because we never seem to eat them quick enough…. lol! I don’t usually put whip cream on it, had it hand and thought it would be a fun for him.
Do you make smoothies? I would love to hear your favorite recipes!
