Smoothie Fun

lately i have been making jayden and i smoothie's for breakfast. i think it is a great way to start the day and pretty healthy too! i give jayden the smoothie in a "big boy cup" without a lid to make it a special treat. well - he always finds a way to have more fun with the treat then i had intended. oh well - we can always clean up:)
my smoothie recipe:
1 cup frozen fruit (i like blueberries)
3/4 cup fat free vanilla yogurt
1 banana
4 -5 ice cubes
put it all in the blender and mix it together
(it is a little thick - so kids could eat it with a spoon or you could add some milk or something to make it thinner)

Enjoy! Have a good weekend!

OMG! These are so funny! If you ever wanted to embarrass Jayden later on in life...these would be perfect. :-)

Oh my - you are a brave mom! But it does look like fun. Maybe I'll try it sometime, or maybe not. Sippy cups are my very best friend. I still have Sloan drink from them a lot. Isn't that terrible? Jayden looked like he was having a great breakfast!
