Kid Friendly Smoothie Recipes Perfect for A Summer Treat

Smoothies are a great way to get some extra fruit and calcium into your kids and they love to help make them.  Even though these are a great tasting Summer treat you can also make these year round for snacktime or a last minute dessert.

Smoothies are really easy to make and all you need is a blender and a few ingredients.  Use whatever fruit you have available and add a little milk, some yogurt and some ice cubes.   It really is simple.  And you can vary flavors and experiment with fruits you happen to have on hand.  You know how kids love to experiment anyway, so they might come up with a favorite flavor all by themselves.  Be sure to let them make some choices.  For all recipes, just add ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.  Add extra milk or juice for a thinner smoothie, yogurt for a thicker smoothie.  You can also add a little honey or vanilla to increase flavor if needed.
