Snacks vs. Meals.
It’s the big debate in our house, because while I slave (ok, maybe not literally) away making three healthful whole food meals every day, my daughter would really just prefer to snack all day.
Peanut Butter Balls.
That’s really all she wants to eat.
Which is why I came up with this EASY Strawberry Smoothie recipe. She thinks she’s getting a snack, but I know she’s getting all the nutrients she needs in a light meal. I love that this smoothie is packed with vitamin C, probiotics, and fiber.
Here’s what you’ll need for your Easy Strawberry Smoothie (makes 3 servings):
- 1 cup sliced strawberries — even better if they’re frozen
- 1 cup milk (I prefer almond milk, but any variety works)
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt, plain or vanilla
- 1 banana (can be frozen)
- 1-2 tbsp honey
Optional nutrient booster add-ins: 1 tbsp chia seeds, ground flax seends, or wheat germ.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on the highest speed until everything is thick, smooth, and delicious. This recipe makes 3 cups, so you can keep it in the refrigerator (or even freezer!), or share with a friend.
