Berry Breakfast Smoothies: Kids in the Kitchen

2 Comments

Our little man had all five of his fruit/veggie servings before 9 am this morning! 

Does attaining the five a day rule cause anyone else to be deliriously happy?  Granted, it was three large glasses of just raspberries and blueberries.  (And probably too much fructose.)  But I was excited about all the fruit guzzling!

These smoothies are incredible.  They’re easy to make and healthy and inexpensive.  A perfect on the go breakfast before school! We all loved them.  The recipe makes 5 tall glasses.  Between the two kids and I, the smoothie was gone in an instant.   Enjoy!

Berry Breakfast Smoothies

2 cups cranberry juice
2 containers (6oz each) raspberry yogurt
1 cup frozen unsweetened raspberries
1 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries
ice cubes

Place ingredients in a blender.  Cover and process until well blended.

  1. Add a few handfuls of spinach… you won’t taste it at all! And… it probably won’t even change the color with all those berries! (I’m on a smoothies for breakfast kick right now and always add spinach… it sometimes turns it green… but I never taste it.) 🙂

    • wow! that is GREAT advice! i have spinach awaiting in the fridge. it would be a perfect sneaky addition. and if it turns out green, adden would be even happier! thanks, angie!
