Today we have a lovely guest post from Chantelle over at MamaMummyMum, and a rather delicious smoothie recipe, which I am going to try on my kids…
I’m always trying to get my kids to drink more, especially in the Summer months when it is hot but this can prove difficult sometimes, even I have to admit a cup of water isn’t the most appealing is it.
I have found that my girls can be enticed with a good smoothie.
This is great because not only are they keeping hydrated but I’m also sneakily making sure they’re getting part of their 5 a day.
I have experimented with lots of fruit combinations in recent months and one of mine and the kids favourites has to be the Stawberry and Apple juicy smoothie….
* 500ml Apple Juice
* 6 Large Strawberries
* 1 Small Banana
* Handful of Ice Cubes
* Fresh Mint Sprigs for Serving
* Simply place all of these ingredients into a blender and blend for around 1 minute.
* I like to add a sprig of mint but you can drink the smoothie without it.
This recipe serves 4-6 depending on how bigger glass you use.
Easy to make and wonderfully refreshing, what fruit would you put in your smoothie??
