For this week’s summer camp cooking session we’re going to be making smoothies. It was actually my 5 yr old who wanted to make these, and he chose the ingredients to go in it. We first made these last summer, and they have become a regular favourite.
As before – and I always tell me children this – first read the whole recipe through from start to finish, then gather all your ingredients and utensils before you begin. At the end of the recipe, I’ve also highlighted which parts I think are particularly suitable for kids to help with, though of course you need to judge that a little yourselves depending in your kids’ ages and abilities. My 5 yr old peeled and chopped all the ingredients (with supervision, of course), and helped to blitz them with our blender stick.
This recipe is suitable for: gluten free, vegetarian, nut free.
(makes 3 largish portions or 4 smaller portions, depending on size of glass)
- 4 kiwis
- 2 bananas
- 250ml Greek yoghurt
- 150ml chilled pineapple juice
- 2 Tbsp honey
- Ice cubes (optional)
- Chopping board
- Cutting knife
- Blender or blender stick
- Tall mixing bowl
- Glasses to serve
- Peel and chop the kiwis and bananas.
- Blend the fruit with the yoghurt, pineapple juice and honey or maple sirup. We used our blender stick for this.
- Divide between glasses and optionally serve with ice cubes.
What kids can help with
- Peeling fruit.
- Chopping fruit, depending on age. If kids are too young to handle a knife, they can also break up the bananas with their hands.
- Measuring out the other ingredients.
