Healthy Yummy Blueberry Milkshake
Having children I understand how important it is to set a good example for them, which is why I love making these healthy yummy blueberry milkshakes for them. It is very important to make nutritional and healthy food choices for your children. I love using fresh, natural ingredients such as fruit, yogurt, sweetened grains, and low fat milk in my milkshakes. One of my favorite fruits to use are blueberries, not only are they small, which makes them blend so much smoother in my blender, but they are also very high in antioxidants, and other vitamins as well. Which is one of the main reasons they are considered to be one of Mother-natures little secret weapons, when it comes to helping our body's fend off sickness and certain diseases. Blueberries do have a tendency to be a little tart though, so I usually add a little splenda to my berries so it makes them taste sweeter. My kids love my blueberry milkshakes, I try to make this healthy frozen treat for them at least once a week.
1.2 Cups of low fat frozen vanilla yogurt.
2.1 Cup of fresh washed blueberries the frozen ones are not as good at least in my opinion.
3.¼ Cup of splenda sugar or stevia which is also a diabetic sugar.
4.½ Cup of low fat milk or skim milk.
5.¼ Cup of crushed ice.
6.1 Working blender.
7.4 Tall milkshake glasses.
8.1 Cup of natural granola.
9.1 Tsp. of vanilla flavoring for a little extra robust vanilla flavor.
1.Pour your milk in first so it blends easier.
2.Add your crushed ice.
3.Pour your blueberries into the blender.
4.Pour your frozen yogurt into the blender.
5.Add your vanilla flavoring.
6.Place the lid onto your blender and blend until well blended.
7.Once they are finished pour them into the milkshake glasses.
8.Add ¼ of the granola to the top of all four of your milkshakes as the topping and viola.
Always remember to make eating healthy appealing to kids by making it fun and easy. If you teach them healthy eating habits when they are smaller it will stick with them for the rest of their lives. I really enjoy making these they not only taste and smell good but are super healthy and low in fat and calories as well.
