Last week, my son’s year 4 class had the kind of homework I love.
The kids had to find a healthy recipe and record themselves cooking. I’m pleased to say that my son chose a really simple recipe. (Not the least because we were in the middle of moving house and all of my kitchen was packed up at this stage!)
So what did he choose? A smoothie!.
Smoothies have it all for kids – dairy, fruit or vegetables, grains (if wanted) and they are so easy for kids to do themselves. I think a fruit smoothie is a pretty good breakfast or after school snack. I should clarify that by smoothie, I mean the milk or yoghurt based drinks.
Here is the recipe my 10 year old chose:
Banana and Strawberry Smoothie (this should make 2)
Milk 2 cups
Probiotic yoghurt (flavour and brand of choice) 150 g tub
One Banana (sliced)
3-4 Strawberries sliced
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
As simple as popping all of the ingredients into your blender or smoothie maker and blending until a smooth drink. Pour into a frosted glass and enjoy
