Today I’m over at the Plan to Eat Blog sharing on of our favorite summer treats, mix and match smoothies:
Because all of my girls have dealt with dairy intolerances when they were infants and toddlers, I’ve never made yogurt/milk smoothies. Instead, I make pure fruit smoothies — usually with whatever fruit combinations I have on hand.
Here’s the Ehman Family Guide to Smoothies:
1. Start with a green. Spinach and kale are our favorites, although kale definitely has a stronger taste to match its extra calcium.
2. Add bananas. I regularly peel and freeze 4-5 bananas in bunches specifically for smoothies because they make a great base in lieu of dairy or milk.
