~From The Good Neighbor Cookbook
- 4 c. frozen blueberries (can use fresh when in season)
- 4 c. frozen strawberries (can use fresh when in season)
- 4 bananas, sliced
- 1 quart orange juice*
- 2 c. plain yogurt*
*My version makes enough for 2 kits at a time, feeding my family of 5 nicely. We've swapped the orange juice and yogurt amounts so we get more protein. They are thick smoothies, but still drinkable by straw.
2 bananas, sliced
3-4 cups mixed frozen berries (or all one kind--totally depends on what we have)
OR 3-4 cups mixed frozen fruit (Dole makes a nice blend that has pineapple, strawberry, mango...)
2 c. plain yogurt
1 c. orange juice
Blend all together!
Other notes: I now peel bananas and freeze them whole in a large Ziploc bag (they don't turn brown in the freezer even though they've been peeled). I keep frozen fruit on hand. And we nearly always have plain yogurt on hand. If I don't have orange juice, I'll use milk. Or, depending on the fruit I'm using, I'll use lemon juice to taste and add a little sugar. So we whip these up once a week or so. They make GREAT portable breakfast options.
