Here’s a recipe (and a how-to video starring Pippi) for easy fruit-and-protein smoothies you can make for your kids. These make a great, healthy after-school snack.

Here’s what you need:

  • Blender
  • Milk (or flavored yogurt such as peach or raspberry…or orange sherbet is even yummier)
  • Frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries)
  • Protein powder (I selected whey-based protein powder that is pretty much flavorless)
  • Banana (the browner, the better)

As you’ll see from the video, the kids love like tolerate these. The reception from my youngest was “huh.”

You see, I forgot that they prefer smoothies made with yogurt instead of milk. Or better yet, orange sherbet. But who wants to shoot another video? Not me.

Smooth move, Pippi…

Oh, sounds good for me! I’ll have to “sample” this before giving it to my son. He knows by that usually means there won’t be any left for him.

I could make two.

I drink a protein smoothie every morning just like the one here, but I add spinach too.

The kids really do like them but only if you add peach yogurt instead of the milk (oh and not the spinach). I totally goofed that one up!

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Okay…here’s a recipe for a wineparty type smoothie for mommy and daddy!

Put 1 bag frozen strawberries in your blender. Pour in enough vodka to cover the berries. Blend until smooth.

Make one can of frozen oj. Pour in the strawberry/ vodka blend.


Pro Tip: They get stronger and smoother if you let them sit in the fridge for about 24 hours before drinking them.

Methinks I had better add vodka to my shopping list. #pronto

Thanks for the recipe, yo!
