Finally, a smoothie I can embrace. Although I make smoothies all the time, I never drank one until now. Much to my dismay, I do not love fruit. Why oh why do all smoothies have fruit? I do tolerate a certain amount for my health, but it is not my favorite. (BTW, this has been very helpful in growing adventurous eaters. If they see you continuing to try a food you are not crazy about, they will be encouraged to do the same.)
But now that I’ve found a new way to enjoy a smoothie without fruit, I am excited by the possibilities. I am on a mission for “fruitless” smoothies, or maybe just ones so tasty I don’t notice a bit of fruit.
Check out that straw! Do your kids love to drink from a straw? Mine do, but I hated throwing away all those bits of plastic. Stainless Steel Straws have been a great eco-friendly alternative.
This smoothie tastes just like a cookie, but it is naturally sweetened with just a bit of honey. Yum! The sweetness will depend on your brands of peanut butter and yogurt, so adjust the amount of honey to your liking.
I did try making this with just whole oats and the immersion blender. It was a bit too chunky for my taste. Now I process the oats first in the blender, I like them ground just slightly larger than oat flour. Then I just add the rest of the ingredients for a quick, easy and filling snack.
