Green Fruit Smoothie

Simple green smoothie

I made this fruit smoothie with my son few days ago, and we both enjoying sipping it on a sunny afternoon. He just loves pouring and measuring, so after chopping the fruit, I let him measure the amount and dump it in the blender.

The smoothie was a little sour because we used plain yogurt. We all love and use it in our house. Try it first before you assume that you or your kids won’t like it. If you need your smoothie to be more sweet, pour in about 1/2 teaspoon of honey or 100% pure maple syrup per each cup. Or you can start with vanilla yogurt or plain Greek yogurt next time since they are typically not as sour.

    Fun smoothies idea and your son is adorable! My kids make smoothies practically everyday with their favorites being chocolate banana or strawberry banana orange. Have a great day!

    You son is so cute. I like the choice of green fruits, not your typical smoothie fruits. Mint makes everything better. I saw your comment on Andy’s post- how great was that?

      Thanks Tiffany. Well, depends on the fruit you start with, it might be a little sour. You might like it that way too!

    Yum! This looks nice and refreshing! We are a fan of the twang from yogurt too 🙂
