Super Easy Strawberry Smoothie Recipe!

In our house smoothies are a staple.  Breakfast, lunch, snack, desert...the kids want them all the time.

Our smoothies are more like slushies so we call them smooshies.  If they're not "slushy" enough then the kids don't care for them as much.

Our recipe is super easy!  I'll share with you the simple steps below.

Here are the ingredients:

  • Ice Cubes
  • Frozen Mixed Fruit (Ours is a combination of strawberry, pineapple, mango and peaches.)
  • Frozen Bananas
  • Apple Juice
The steps are easy!  Add your ice cubes, fill about 3/4 of the way with frozen fruit.  Then add 1.5 to 2 whole frozen bananas.  Fill the rest with apple juice, to about an inch or two from the top.

Hit blend and voila!  Strawberry Fruit Smooshie!

You can also add yogurt, use a different juice and add berries.  We skip the berries because when the raspberry seeds are in the smoothie the kids get all weirded out.  When needed I have also put powdered or liquid acidophilus in the smoothie as well.

*Fresh Fruit works well too of course but if your fruit or bananas aren't frozen then your smoothie won't become a smooshie!

So what do you think?  Are you a smoothie fan?
