Breakfast Smoothie – Video Post

Posted by 7 years ago 15 Comments

I may have the only 2 year old on the planet who requests to make a smoothie video at 7:30 in the morning. I’m not kidding. He came into my bedroom this morning talking about breakfast. We decided on a smoothie and then he told me he was getting the camera! I burst out laughing and then realized what a fabulous idea! He took the pressure of me to come up with a video idea this week!

So please excuse the pajamas and dirty hair I literally woke up 15 minutes before grabbing the camera. And yes, I was wearing a green tank top —it was St. Patty’s yesterday. I swear, totally NOT planned! LOL

    I've been thinking about buying a hand blender for awhile now, and after watching your video with my 12 year old daughter, I decided now was the time! She loves to make smoothies and I hate to drag out the Vitamix when she wants to make them (not to mention cleaning it!) Well, we bought one this evening and she immediately made this smoothie when we got home. It was so easy for her and cleanup was a snap! What a YUMMY smoothie this is!! She has plans for all different kinds of smoothies now. Thanks for the great idea, Roni! ~Sandy Reply

    Made this recipe this morning with my 8 year old, she LOVED it and wants it again tomorrow! Very yummy too. (I used frozen mixed berries, with blackberries, strawberry's, blueberrys and the banana) Reply

    I love this smoothie. I was excited to see your video because I use the same ingredients even down to the number of frozen strawberries! I do add a bit of milk to mine just because I like it a little less thick, and sometimes I'll throw in ground flaxseed if I need a nutritional jumpstart in the morning. But nothing beats a strawberry banana smoothie. Well, maybe a strawberry banana smoothie with your cute kid! It's fun to see families cook together. Reply

    Roni - I'm having a hard time settling down on a yogurt. I really love the Yoplait light (2 points), the WW brand and Dannon Light & Fit are only 1 point but they have a powdery texture that I don't care for. Do you have any recommendations or do you have a personal favorite? I mention this here because I think you said in the video you were trying a new kind of yogurt... Reply

    Allison - Honestly, I buy whatever is on sale and I tend to like the store brands. If you ever shopped at Aldi's thier Fit&Active brand is good and it's 8oz for 2 points! Very filling. Reply
