The other day, my 6-year-old daughter Annie and I had an argument in the car as we crawled in rush-hour traffic. She wanted to stop and get a smoothie and I said no: “I can make you a smoothie when we get home, it will cost us less and if I make it will be healthier for you.”
“But you can’t make the banana-berry smoothie that I want,” she said.
In a way, she was right. I would never make a banana berry smoothie that also included raspberry sorbet, apple strawberry juice, frozen yogurt, with a creamy base and still not use milk for a liquid.
When we got home, Annie sulked off to play with a friend and I got out the blender. Into it went frozen blueberries, a ripe banana, a few strawberries and. It tasted perfect, just like the commercial banana-berry smoothie she’d wanted, and I knew she’d like it. I left the smoothie outside the door for her and soon she was back inside, insisting that I teach her how to make it.
Fruit, a cornerstone of a healthy diet, filled with necessary vitamins and minerals. I like it simple and unadorned. But I also enjoy drinking fruit — not fruit juices, which typically use artificial sweeteners and are low in fiber, but whole fruit blended into a smoothie. You can pack a lot of fruit into one of these drinks, so if you’re having trouble getting your daily servings, smoothies might be your answer. Just be sure the fruit you use is really ripe and sweet.
Homemade Banana-Berry Smoothie
You can make this smoothie year-round because it contains frozen fruit. The ripeness of the banana is important here: if the banana is more starchy than sweet, your smoothie will taste dull. Blueberries and strawberries are packed with the antioxidant compounds that give them their blue and red colors, and they’re a very good source of vitamin C, manganese and fiber. Bananas are also a very good source of vitamin C and manganese, as well as potassium, fiber and vitamin B6.
