Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie


School is almost out and summer is right around the corner. Fun smoothies is a great way for kids to ‘cook’ in the kitchen. Smoothies are quick and easy! Strawberry Lemonade has only 5 familiar ingredients; strawberries, banana, lemonade, a squeeze of fresh lemon and ice.
Little Chef C combined everything in a blender. Juicing the lemon was the hardest part. She needed help from Little Chef Dad to squeeze it hard enough to produce any juice! She  also needed help pouring the lemonade because the pitcher was completely full!

This is how we do recipes in our home….all in small portions. Last summer an Uncle came to visit us and a few other cousins homes. He wondered why we all had the same little colorful cups. We do have an Ikea close by which the other relatives frequent more then we do, but alas we all apparently picked up the same cups!  They are the perfect size for smoothies!
This recipe was LOVED by all! Even Little Chef H drank her portion! This recipe will be made all summer long!
To make it even easier you can squeeze the lemon then put the juice in an ice cube tray to freeze. Fill a freezer safe bag with the frozen lemon juice, strawberries and banana. All you need to do is pull out the baggie, add ice and lemonade!

    Looks delicious and refreshing. I wouldn't have thought to try it with banana. What kind of blender do you have? It looks Ginormous!

    That sounds like it would be so good on one of these 95+ temperature days, plus it's healthy. That's always a benefit.

    The banana adds a little creaminess. I have a BlendTec. It is HUGE! We make something in it and because it doesn't go all the way to the top I think we do not have enough yet we always do. It still deceives me!

    You are right! A cold drink is always a good place to add lots of fresh fruit. They like it even when they know what's inside!
