Yogurt Fruit Smoothies



Recently our friends came to visit for the weekend and brought their 3 1/2 year old daughter for her first ski experience.  While she’s not a finicky eater, and is about the most adorable child in the whole entire world, getting her interested in food was the challenge.  She had never had a smoothie before, so I made these for breakfast.  They must have been a hit because this is what she requested for breakfast the next day, too.  I’m thinking that pleasing a 3-year old is about the best compliment in the world.

They are quick, easy and pack a punch of good-for-you stuff in them.

A few of notes about this recipe.  I’ve made this with many different combinations of fruits and juices.  We always seem to have Pomegranate juice on hand, so I use that.  And we keep a stash of blueberries in the freezer, so they are great for this recipe.  I’ve tried different yogurts, too, and my preference is a vanilla bean yogurt.  If you use a plain or Greek yogurt, add a tablespoon of vanilla to the recipe to add some flavor.  And, finally, I admit I use fresh-squeezed orange juice when I make these.  (Love my little juicer!)  But I’m sure it would work with any orange juice.
