Ice Cream for Breakfast?

Of course, that would be too excellent to be right! But how about a quick, simple and healthy alternative that could be served for breakfast or an afternoon snack?

During the chaos of the morning routine, when kids are refusing to wear socks on a rainy day and the cat is leaving you a hairball in the middle of the hallway, it would be nice if something would go smoothly.

Stage left: enter a blender, some fruit (fresh or frozen), a small yogurt and voila, a Smoothie saves the morning! Kids will like to place their orders with you, so that you can make their special faux-ice cream breakfast. Instead of trying to please the troops by taking out 4 boxes of cereal and 2 kinds of frozen waffles, try these simple, healthy thoughts instead.

Smoothie Basics:
1. Pour the liquid ingredients (juice, milk or yogurt) into the blender first.
2. Dump in your fruit. Frozen fruit makes the smoothie thicker, so it feels more like a milkshake.
a. If you have some bananas that are turning brown, peel them, bag them, and then throw them into the freezer—they will be the perfect addition to your smoothies!
b. Feel free to add extra stuff to your smoothie, like flax seed meal, which is high in Omega-3’s. The smoothie will taste so excellent, they won’t even notice!
3. Blend until smooth. (You can use a hand-held “stick” or “immersion blender”, which is a small simpler to clean than your larger margarita/daiquiri blender.)

Wish We Were in Hawaii

½ cup lowfat vanilla yogurt
Splash: orange juice or milk, if desired
¼ cup frozen pineapple chunks
¼ cup frozen mango
1/3 frozen banana

The Blue Banana

¼ cup lowfat milk
½ cup vanilla yogurt
½ banana
¾ cup frozen blueberries

(These make 1 kid-sized smoothie. To be more efficient, double this recipe and drink some, yourself…It is better for you than your usual coffee-only breakfast!)
