This strawberry banana smoothie with yogurt is a fun smoothie recipe for kids. Make this for your Mini Chef on Mini Chef Mondays or even let them make it themselves! (special thanks to KitchenAid for sending us their pro line series blender to whip up this tasty breakfast)
I’m always looking for fun smoothie recipes for kids because my daughter loves waking up to a freshly blended breakfast smoothie! 🙂
I’m using the blender more and more lately to make breakfast for us and my mini chef loves to help out, but sometimes she just wants to wake up to breakfast in bed. Her favorite color is pink so that’s why this strawberry banana smoothie with yogurt is her “favorite” right now.
Talking about blender, I received a new beast of a blender from KitchenAid to try out and WOW. You guys.I’m in LOVE with the Pro Line Series Blender. The thing is, these high speed blenders cost a ton of money and so far with testing, this one has beyond impressed me and I’ve tried and owned most of them. If you’re spending the money, you want the blender to be worth it.
My mini chef hates a loud blender and I feel like the double wall thermal control jar helps a bit with the noise too (also great for making soups!). I really haven’t touched my other blenders since getting this one. I would find myself holding the lid down on my other blenders and this one feels so much more durable, definitely “no hand holding.” 😉
When we first had Kay she had a few food allergies, and we needed to blend a lot of things for her to get nutrients in her diet, this blender blends, and there are no bits. It also has a tamperer to make ice creams. Since she grew up on smoothies, she still loves them! She typically wants a smoothie at least 4 times a week.
She’s excited to make some freezer pack smoothies this week with me. I told her we’d go to the store and pick out all her favorite smoothie ingredients. The best part of involving her in her smoothie making is she knows what goes into it. Last week she made one with kale, but it turned out brown…. working on making it green so we can share and take pictures of course. 😉
She kept adding in strawberries, and I think between the strawberries, blueberries, and kale it just turned into a poop color. She was scared to drink it, but it was so tasty, and she did love it! Kids eat with their eyes first, and that’s why I always try to make her food fun or get her involved in the process.
I can’t wait until the farmers market opens and we can get some local fresh fruits and vegetables for our breakfast smoothie recipes!
