Fruit and Yogurt Smoothies Bags
Did you LOVE the Green Smoothie Bags with Yogurt recipe Kim posted yesterday? It sure looked yummy, but I am not sure my family is ready to tackle the GREEN! If yours are like mine….try this Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie Recipe, and then work your way into the Greens!
My kids LOVE smoothies, and yes there was a time when they were tiny, and life was hectic, that I splurged and would buy the pre packaged smoothie packs from the grocers freezer section. Now, as our boys continue to grow, their appetites do as well (funny how that works), and it soon became “too expensive” to indulge in this little treat. So imagine how excited they were when I came across an idea on Pinterest to make your own freezer smoothie packs! I tweaked the ingredients a bit, and made a dozen various smoothie packs in the first trial run. (6 of which were gone the first weekend!) I love this idea, because it is a great way to use up yogurt that has about reached expiration date in the back of your fridge or that 1/2 can of mandarin oranges that didn’t get eaten at lunch time. The possibilities of fruit combinations are endless, so indulge your family…and share a smoothie!
