1 lb. unsweetened frozen peaches (or try strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, sweet cherries, blackberries, bananas etc. - kiwis are a no go - just trust me on this!)
1 1/2 cups yogurt - we like Stonyfield Farm Organic lowfat vanilla, but almost anything is good
2 cups cold milk
2-3 Tablespoons honey (or sugar)
Blend in blender until smooth - add more milk if needed. I use the puree setting. Our children don't like chunks so I make them really smooth, but if you like chunks, just don't blend it as long. You'll need bigger straws, though! I really loved Cultures Chocolate-Banana Smoothies when I was in college, and now I know how to make them - frozen bananas and Chocolate Ovaltine Powder instead of the sugar .... mmmmm! I even like Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothies - adding Chocolate Ovaltine Powder instead of the sugar to frozen strawberries!!!! Yummy! I suppose you could use chocolate syrup, but we usually have Ovaltine on hand, so that's what I use. I just found a web-site that says Ovaltine now contains food dye, and they have taken out the vitamins - so I guess I'll have to check this out! I guess I need to be a more diligent label reader! Why do they have to change things so often?
Mommy Trick .... when the children were smaller and sometimes were not eating properly, our Doctor recommended a small daily amount of Shaklee's Protein powder. They wouldn't drink it in juice or milk, but they didn't even notice it when I put it in a wee Smoothie! I used it all during pregnancy in yummy mild smoothies - it was one of the few things I could keep down!
If you are a smoothie fan and would like to share your favorite combinations, drop me a note in the comments! I like to try new things once in a while.
