Being the picky eater that is my second grader, sometimes it’s a challenge coming up with a breakfast that will get him through the morning.
Soothies are a great way to get fruit, protein and calcium into those little tummies to start the day off right. The great thing about smoothies is that the fruits and veggies combinations are endless. Our fruit combo of choice is banana/strawberry/blueberry.
Ingredients (these measurements are all approximate. I never use a measuring cup so this is my best guess)
1/4 cup blueberries
1 cup greek yogurt (vanilla or strawberry flavor)
1 Tbs. Wheat Germ
1 generous scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder or 1 package of Carnation Instant Breakfast
1 cup milk
optional: 1/2 cup of ice (this will make it more thick)
Combine everything in a blender and blend until…blended.
This smoothie plus a bowl of Cheerios and I get the “good mommy” badge for the day.
