I try to include Holly in cooking at least a few times a week. Being that she is a young child I prefer not to do hot stove top cooking with her just yet or on vary rare occasion. Which means we typically end up doing baking for our cooking experiences -- it is summer, the house is warm so there is not much baking happening. I am trying to broaden our horizons a bit though and try other types of cooking/kitchen fun. This weekend she made fruit smoothies for the family.
Since it is summer we are usually well stocked with berries. I like to buy them in flats or 1/2 flats and freeze some... which make for fantastic smoothie goodness. Holly thought a smoothie was all ice cream or a shake - today she learned otherwise!
1 cup frozen blue berries
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup strawberry yogurt
3/4 cup milk
about a cup of ice
about 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream (for Holly's sake - not needed)
Blend well, until smooth! Serve with spoon & straw. So good!!!
