Banana Split Smoothie

My son was late getting out of bed, so I needed something quick for him. Here is the smoothie I made for breakfast, and I am calling it the banana split smoothie.

Here is the line-up of ingredients:

8 oz. non fat milk (I used powdered)
1 package chocolate powdered instant breakfast (got these dirt cheap at Target using coupons)
4 oz carton low fat banana yogurt (yoplait kids....also very inexpensive with coupon)
1/2 c. frozen strawberries

Blend all ingredients in your blender or vitamix. I also added a few ice cubes because I like my smoothies cold! Pour into a large glass and serve with a straw.

Sorry, forgot to put the strawberries in the picture....gotta start getting these pictures right! Below is a picture of the powdered milk we like. It has a good flavor to it and is easy to mix. I like the Pampered Chef plunger pitcher. It is perfect for mixing up powdered drinks or frozen juices with water.

Calorie content of one drink (use a large glass) is approximately 350 calories. A great drink to start your day, and a little different than the spinach smoothie I usually make. Do you have a favorite smoothie that you enjoy? Feel free to share it with us.

heather, glad you found me! I hope you'll come back often. I have quite a few posts coming up this week that have to do with using your food storage.
