Beau's Favorite Smoothie


Raise your hand if you have a picky eater...  I'll raise both of mine because I have TWO!  

Luckily, my little guy (Beau) is a smoothie lover. After sharing his love for them on Instagram, some of you asked if we have a favorite recipe.  Before I had kids, I would've found that to be pretty funny... aren't smoothies just a bunch of random fruit tossed in a blender?!

For those of you who may be as blind to this as I once was --  smoothies aren't the easiest thing to make.

Several factors come into play when it comes to making a smoothie that actually tastes good (especially for a picky eater). I know with my kiddos, any combination of the wrong flavors, textures, or ingredients lead to a bunch of wasted groceries.  So, through a ton of trial-and-error, we've found that this one works for us and has quickly become "Beau's Favorite Smoothie".


- 2 Frozen bananas

- 1/2 a bag of frozen strawberries

- 1/2 a bag of frozen blueberries

- A hefty spoon-full of peanut butter

- Almond milk


  • I pretty much eyeball the milk (we're dairy free in the Siron house), but liquid is important. Start with a cup and add more if your smoothie looks too thick.  You can also add a little water, but don't leave out the almond milk.  It gives the smoothie a creaminess that we love!


  • When bananas or other fruits start to go bad, just chop them into pieces, toss them in a freezer bag, and toss 'em in the freezer for smoothies.


  • I often buy my frozen fruit from dollar tree- yes, you read that correctly.  So when I say "a bag," I'm talking about their normal,  12 oz bag... can't beat it for $1.00!

Toss it all in your blender and blend until it's a smooth and creamy consistency! That's it.  Really.  Easy, right?!

Frozen fruit is the key to success. If you're ever looking to sneak some veggies in the mix, I think it's best to steam them first then refreeze before throwing them in your smoothies.

I hope you guys enjoy Beau's Favorite Smoothie as much as Beau does! Let me know if you give it a try, and be sure to share some of your favorites as well.
