My inspiration for this month was breakfast. I am not normally a breakfast person. Mornings are not my thing. I’m the kind of person that groggily rolls out of bed and stumbles to the bathroom, cursing the entire time. I’m barely human for several hours after waking, no matter how well I slept. So breakfast inspiration? Haha. Coffee. That’s my breakfast. The kids are lucky if they get cereal!
I’ve been making smoothies a lot lately, though. Green smoothies. protein smoothies, fruit smoothies. This smoothie strongly reminds me of the ever-popular Yop in my childhood. I saw it again in the grocery store recently, and I was aghast at all the sugar and garbage in it. And the price? I wanted to faint. I knew the kids would love it, but really, how hard could it be to make it myself at home? The answer: not hard at all. A blender and some fruit is all I needed. If this isn’t sweet enough you could add a little honey, but my kids love it just the way it is. And both my brain and my wallet feel good about giving it to them.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie
1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup milk
1 cup greek yogurt
Combine fruit, milk and yogurt in a blender. Blend until smooth and serve. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for a couple days.
