If I let Arik pick his own breakfast he would most likely choose to just drink 5 or 6 glasses of milk and not eat anything. With this thought in mind, I decided to come up with a breakfast in a glass for him. This way he gets everything he needs to start his day and he can drink it all through a straw, which, of course, makes him very happy. It also makes me very happy because it takes about 5 minutes to prepare and there’s enough smoothie for me as well.
I used frozen berries for our smoothie, so if you use fresh you may want to add some ice cubes before blending so you get a nice cold smoothie. If your little ones prefer it sweet be sure to add 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey. Depending on how thick you like your smoothies just increase or decrease the amount of milk until you get the consistency you want. Cheers!
