Life with kids is crazy. We are constantly on-the-go shuffling from school, karate, soccer, and of course, play time! There are so many unhealthy options for kids on the market. I like to keep things fresh and simple with an easy breakfast smoothie made with milk, fruit, and oats. The milk is just what my son needs to “Drink to a brighter future.” It fuels my son’s school day and extra activities!
My son has a bit of an obsession with asking if things are healthy. Chances are if something isn’t healthy he will pass for the healthier option. He knows more than any other beverage, milk impacts current and long-term health of kids – it’s the foundation for their bodies for the future (bones, muscles, teeth) into adulthood. Can you tell we talk about healthy foods a lot in this household?
The mornings are one of the most hectic times in a household. Sure we would love our kids to sit, drink their milk, and eat their oatmeal and fruit, but sometimes we simply do not have the time. Well, I have the perfect, easy, and delicious solution for you right here.
Start with the key ingredients: milk, yogurt, banana, oats, pitted dates, ice, and fruit. This time I used slightly thawed frozen strawberries, mango, and peaches. This recipe works with whatever fruit you have on hand!
Pour your milk and yogurt in the blender. Then, throw in the banana, oats, dates, fruit and ice. Tip: use less ice with frozen fruit and more when using thawed or fresh.
Blend it all together and pour into a glass!
Top it off with a sprinkle of goji berries and now you and your kids can drink to a better future!
