Smoothie Tips

  • You can add nonfat or lowfat yogurt or ice to any smoothie.
  • Bananas add a little sweetness.
  • Try frozen kale instead of spinach (you usually can’t taste the greens)!
  • Portion out and freeze smoothie ingredients in containers or self-sealings bags so they’re ready to go.

Lily loves her healthy green drink! For one large or two small smoothies, blend together:  

  • 1 banana  
  • 1 handful spinach or kale (frozen or fresh; Lily’s friend Micah also uses a handful of home-grown wheat grass) 
  • A few slices of mango (frozen or fresh) 
  • 1 cup milk (any kind) 

Pour into cup(s)… and watch for a green mustache! 

Here are more yummy combinations:

  • 1 banana, ½ cup canned pineapple (in 100% natural fruit juice), 4 orange segments
  • 1 banana, ½ cup frozen blueberries, and 1 cup of any kind of milk
  • ½ banana, 1 cup orange juice (100% natural), ½ packet of instant oatmeal, ¼ cup plain lowfat yogurt, ½ cup ice
