Make Your Own: Fruit Smoothie

Fruit smoothies are a great on-the-go breakfast. You can also freeze them to make yummy smoothie pops. Ours are dairy free!

I have a bunch of frozen strawberries I need to use up to make room for other goodies in the freezer, so today's smoothie is super simple.  Frozen strawberries, a banana, a couple mint leaves, and apple juice (I used the whole bottle pictured there which is about 6-8 ounces).  Sometimes I toss in spinach leaves and other healthy vegetables which will be masked by the taste of fruit.

The kids love them, and you will too!

I make dairy free smoothies too! (My EBF baby reacts when I have dairy in anything.) My favorite right now is watermelon, but I will be trying this one!
