3-ingredient Smoothies

Teenagers and mornings, not exactly a match made in heaven! Especially when it comes to getting teenagers to eat before school. If you have a teenager, you know what I am talking about- teenagers can barely get out of bed, and sometimes expecting them to eat breakfast, is well, just fantasy. And although they can fend for themselves, in my experience,  teens still LOVE to be taken care of. So when they aren't hungry but still want a little something, a smoothie is an excellent solution. Pour into a thermos for a quick run-to-catch-the-bus breakfast! 3 Ingredient Smoothies 1. Real fruit juice-About 3/4 cup I like prefer the exotic fruit blends you can find in the refrigerator section of the grocery store,  but orange juice will work just fine.

Frozen Fruit- About 1 cup (slightly more fruit will give a thicker consistency) My favourites are mangoes, peaches, strawberries, bananas (fresh or frozen) and blueberries. Freeze your own in the summer and store in ziptop bags in the freezer. [caption id="attachment_3011" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="STEP 2"] STEP 2[/caption] 3. Yogurt- about 1/4 cup Plain, vanilla, fruit flavoured, low fat, balkan, anything goes. Sometimes we even use frozen yogurt if we have it on hand.

Makes 1 large happy teenager (smoothie).
