I’m simply hopeless at eating pieces of fruit: I always forget (or go for the biscuit tin instead!) so I started making smoothies to try to pack in my 5-a-day. Of course Lentil was fascinated with mummy’s new drink, especially when he saw me sprinkle granola on top, and wanted some too. Great as a mid-morning snack or dessert for little ones. This will only take you about 5 minutes too!
Makes one large glass or a medium and a lentil-sized glass.
1 banana, peeled and sliced
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
60ml / 4 tbsp natural greek style yoghurt
1/2 tsp vanilla essence / 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
granola to sprinkle on top (optional)
Blend the blueberries, banana and kiwi using a blender (a hand-held one will do). Next add the yoghurt and vanilla and blend again until you have a smooth liquid. Poor into a glass and sprinkle with granola.
