Spring has arrived! With the sun shining and the snow melting we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Spring is a great time to introduce new fresh menu items into your Kids Eat Smart Club. Smoothies are always a welcomed addition to our Clubs. Many clubs serve smoothies once a week to change things up. Serving smoothies allows us to ensure we are getting the right number of fruits and veggies in the run of a day. Be sure to include fresh or frozen fruit, milk or 100% juice and yogurt if desired. Many Clubs make smoothies from the leftover fruit they have each week. Try this Smoothie in your KES Club this week:
Berry Banana Blitz Smoothie
- 1 cup 100% orange or apple juice
- 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
- 1 banana, chopped
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
This smoothie is a great way to enjoy some fruit on the go with the nutritious additions of ground flax and yogurt. Choose your favourite fruit and change up the flavours easily. Kids will enjoy measuring fruit out and buzzing up their snack in the blender.
Step 1 In a blender pour in fruit juice. Add raspberries, banana, blueberries and yogurt.
Step 2 Puree until very smooth.
Step 3 Pour into glasses to serve.
