Preschoolers can toss ingredients into a blender and you can whip them up into smoothies. Easy, right? But that's the point of this little series - I'm doing the thinking for you!
The standard around here consists of:
- plain, unsweetened yogurt
- Xylitol, a natural sweetener that kills the yucky bacteria on your teeth and in your body
- frozen fruit
One little trick I've found helpful over the years: freeze coconut milk into ice cube trays to pop out and use instead of ice cubes. Same for overripe bananas: slice them thick and freeze them on a sheet pan flat, then pop them into a plastic storage bag to grab and throw into smoothies.
