Homemade smoothies (low in sugar) are a breakfast that’s sure to please kids and teens. Smoothies are super easy to make, and you can even make these a day ahead. Try this smoothie recipe for an excellent source of calcium from milk and yogurt, and a power house of antioxidant vitamins from the fruits. First, puree ½ cup frozen berries and ½ banana; add 4 oz. of milk to help puree the fruit. After the fruit is pureed, add 4 oz. of your child’s favorite flavored yogurt (or plain yogurt) to the fruit/milk blend, and blend until all ingredients are well mixed.
