I’m officially calling it snack week here at Marin mama cooks, so in honor of snack week I’m going to be posting two of my kid’s new favorite snacks. Yippee! I mean who doesn’t love a good snack, right? I figured this was the perfect week to focus on snacks, as the days are getting longer and spring sports are starting to ramp up. As a result, kids tend to be hungrier this time of year (at least in my house) and need some fuel to power them through the afternoon until dinnertime. I don’t mind feeding my kids a snack, but I prefer it to be on the healthier side when possible! I think I scored with these two snacks, as they both satisfy their sweet craving, while providing them with a healthy snack.
The first snack I’m posting is this easy, 3-ingredient smoothie that gets a double thumbs up in my house by both kids! Eli is a total smoothie kid, and he will happily down a smoothie for breakfast, lunch or after school.
My little friend Tatum helped me come up with this smoothie concoction! We were making up smoothies one day and I asked her what type of smoothie sounded good to her, and she said, “strawberries, yogurt, banana and a bit of honey.” Bingo! Well done Tatum! I love the simplicity of her recipe, as it only requires 3 simple ingredients, a ripe banana, fresh or frozen strawberries and some vanilla Greek yogurt! Easy peasy and super tasty! This is the perfect spring-time smoothie, as strawberries are starting to come in season, at least in Northern California.
This is also a kid tested and approved smoothie, as I’ve made this up for 8 different kids and all of them rate this a 10+. It’s the perfect smoothie to serve up for breakfast, lunch or as an after school snack. It satisfies kid’s sweet craving while providing them with a healthy snack. Can’t beat that!…
