Always love adding a new smoothie combination to the recipe box. Here’s my January release (DELICIOUS!!!)
Strawberried Banana Smoothie by Jodie Fitz
2 cups frozen Price Chopper strawberries (NuVal 100)
4 oz. Price Chopper low fat milk
6 oz. Price Chopper low fat vanilla yogurt
½ banana (NuVal 91)
2 tablespoons Price Chopper honey
1 teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla extract
½ teaspoon raspberry extract
1 teaspoon lime juice
Add all of the ingredients into the blender and blend for a nutritious snack and/or part of a delicious breakfast.
Fresh Strawberries vs. Frozen Strawberries: You can trade fresh strawberries for the frozen, but you will have to add in ice instead. Using frozen strawberries in the off season is a more affordable way to take advantage of this nutritious fruit as long as you use the strawberries that are freshly frozen with no added sugars. The frozen simply eliminates the need for ice in this tasty smoothie.
Learning & Smoothies: Smoothies are one of those fairly easy recipes that kids can really take charge with supervision. There are also a lot of ways to tie in learning when cooking at any time, but with smoothie making you can add in a time learning game and have them either set a timer to see how long it takes to fully blend or mark down the time on the clock that you start vs. the time that you end and have them determine the difference.
