It's actually "healthy"! :-D Amazing! They really enjoyed it!
Definitely KID FRIENDLY! :-D Those are always good!
We made them not so healthy by adding RediWhip and choc. chip minis. Yeah, probably shouldn't check out the breakfast in the background either. :-D
The original recipe came from a kids magazine called Humpty Dumpty.
We tweaked it a bit so this is what we did:
To make 4 mugs (not quite full)
Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.
Serve right away or refrigerate until you are ready to use.
1/2 C. orange juice
1/2 C. milk
1 C. yogurt (we used vanilla, they suggested plain)
1/2 C. canned pumpkin
1 ripe banana
1-2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
4-6 ice cubes
You can definitely vary how much banana, pumpkin, spice you put into it!
This was a great use of our left over canned pumpkin and ripe bananas. It seems I always have those two. No recipe ever uses a full can of pumpkin, I have found. :-D
