Healthy Pineapple Banana Smoothie is a quick and easy smoothie to make and one of the kids approved recipe.
Pineapple and banana combination
Delicious blend of pineapple, banana and yogurt is prefect as after school snack. Pineapple and banana are two most preferred fruits for smoothies and milkshakes. Tropical flavour of pineapple balances the tastes of sweet and tart. Banana beautifully blends with most of the fruits in any recipe. In this recipe banana has 2 advantages, first it provides the creamy texture that appeals kids, second it naturally provides sweetness to the smoothie and recipe doesn’t actually need extra sugar or syrup which ultimately makes this smoothie healthy.
After school smoothie
Kids need to have healthy snacks after school, I think smoothies are quick and easy option. You really can’t get much quicker energizing option than smoothies. They require just few minutes to whip up and are packed with vitamins, fiber and other nutrients to keep kids fueled until their next meal. This is a great way to boost our kid’s fruits and veggies intake.
However if your kids are like mine, they can be picky about colour, texture, flavour and even the glass you serve in matters!! Based on these factors my daughter categorize dish as ‘yummy’ or ‘yucky’. You can totally customise this recipe to suit your kid’s preference. Be creative to pair up different fruits to pass your kids taste test.
As banana provides sufficient sweetness, my daughter enjoy this smoothie as it is without any added sugar. However, for extra natural sweetness add 1 more banana or dates to suit your kids taste buds.Looking for #smoothie that the picky kids will love?
