Move Over Milkshakes – The Best Breakfast Smoothies

Kids love smoothies because they think they’re milkshakes. Parents wouldn’t dare serve ice cream concoctions for breakfast, but the kids won’t realize how nutritious their smoothies are when you make them taste so satisfying.

Give your kids a healthy drink before school that’ll have them convinced you’ve lost your marbles and made milkshakes. When you blend up the ingredients and pour out something sweet and smooth, you’ll have them fooled.

Honey Banana Oat Smoothie

You’ll Need:

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats (dry)

1 medium ripe banana

½ cup plain Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons honey

1 cup low fat milk

5-6 ice cubes

Plop everything in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass and serve. It’s a drinkable oatmeal that’s especially unique.

“Pumpkin Pie” Smoothie


3/4 cup canned pumpkin purée

1 small ripe banana

1 cup soymilk

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon cinnamon

What’s In It:

2 tablespoons almond butter

1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and diced

Combine all ingredients in the blender until creamy and frothy. Pour and serve. Kids may enjoy some extra apple slices to dunk.
