THE SIMPLE SMOOTHIE SOLUTION – for Kids, Parties and You!

Today I am sharing a very quick, easy smoothie recipe for you. It is perfect for anyone who needs to have more nutrition run down their gut; and can be used for those allergic to dairy. You may use dairy or non-dairy milk for this smoothie. Make it a part of your daily snack, breakfast or be a charming host.If your kids are anything like mine, ‘fuzzy’ is a word often used. She is a typical ‘vat’ personality – dislikes eating, lazy to chew, rather play than eat! While I worry about her nutritional needs being met, it also helps me get creative.1 111.jpg

This smoothie was such a creative attempt. I just took whatever came to my mind, put them all together and ‘churn’ went the grinder. In just a few minutes, we had a ‘Happy Mom’, a ‘Healthy Snack’ and a clean kitchen.

MAKES: 2.5 regular sized glasses

INGREDIENTS:

  1. Orange – one medium size
  2. Banana – one medium size
  3. Rice Milk – 1.5 glasses filled to the top or Milk or Soy Milk
  4. Ice – a few cubes
  5. Sugar – 1 Tbsp
  6. Elaichi (Cardamom) – 1 small pod. You can use half if you want a milder flavor

HOW TO:

  1. Mix it all
  2. Churn
  3. Pour
  4. Drink

OPTIONAL: You may strain it in a big strainer for extremely fuzzy kids, to remove the orange fibers. You may also use any milk – dairy, rice or soy. I used Rice milk and that is the best I can vouch for in terms of taste and consistency! It was gone in seconds, we all loved it!

VARIATION 1: 

  1. Watermelon
  2. Banana
  3. Rice milk
  4. Sugar
  5. Elaichi

Mix, churn, strain, pour, enjoy!

VARIATION 2:

  1. Grapefruit
  2. Orange
  3. Rice milk
  4. Sugar
  5. Vanilla extract – 1/6th tsp

Mix, churn, strain, pour, enjoy!

I hope this has given a quick breakfast or snack option for yourself and your kids. It is filling, energizing and absolutely lip smacking! More so, your kids can easily make this with you and it can be a great add on for your parties!
