Breakfast Smoothie

Printable Recipe

Smoothies are easy, quick, and a great way to use up fruit from the fridge.  These delicious drinks are also a great way to hide vegetables without your kids knowing!

Ingredients

  • Fresh or frozen fruit (blueberries, mango, peaches, bananas, strawberries, etc)
  • Milk, plain or flavoured yogurt, or kefir!
  • Fresh or frozen vegetables (optional)

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients, except vegetables, to a pitcher or large bowl.  Using an immersion blender blend ingredients to your preferred smoothie texture.
  2. Add spinach or other vegetable and blend once again.
  3. Pour into serving glasses, and enjoy!

Immersion blenders come in all sizes and vary in price depending on brand.  The higher prices do not necessarily equal better quality.  You can get a good immersion blender for $15-20 at Canadian Tire, or other local retailer.  An immersion blender is a good investment and can be used for smoothies, soups, chillis, and more!
