Funky Monkey Smoothie

My daughter is a terrible breakfast eater. She likes to wake up, have some milk, and wait an hour to eat. On days she has school or music class, we don’t have time for her to do this routine, so I had to come up with something that she could eat/drink in the car if necessary and incorporated some of her favorite things, as well as a nutritious start to the day. This fulfills all those requirements and it’s a great after school snack as well! Adapted from how to feed a family (get it here) Help keep our resources for families with special needs free!

  • 2 frozen bananas (I freeze super ripe bananas on a cookie sheet and put them in a Ziploc bag when they are frozen)
  • 2 cups milk (cow or nut)
  • 2 Tablespoons smooth nut butter (I used peanut butter this time, but the kids also love this with chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • ½ cup greek yogurt (I used honey vanilla, if you use plain then add 1 tablespoon maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon flax meal
