smoothie bar

Our last week of camp we had a smoothie bar with Mitch, the smoothie pro. Paired with a piece of whole-grain toast and 1 Tbsp of Peanut Butter, our smoothies rounded out breakfast perfectly. We tried a variety of flavors and everyone got to make their own combination using just the ingredients that they like!

Smoothie Components:

  • Protein (from a powder, greek yogurt, pb, etc.)
  • Fat (from peanut butter, coconut oil, etc)
  • Creamy factor (milk, yogurt, frozen banana)
  • Good Stuff/Flavor (greens, cocoa powder, fruit, juice)

Smoothies are great because:

  • they are easy and fast to make and can be eaten on-the-go!
  • they can provide all of the meal components we need
  • they are delicious and feel like a treat!

Our smoothie bar contained:

  • Oikos Greek Yogurt (greek yogurt is a great source of protein and is super creamy!)
  • Milk (Almond or Skim)
  • 100% fruit juice (no added sugars)
  • Frozen fruit (strawberries, bananas, etc)
  • Amazing Grass SuperFood Greens
  • Peanut Butter or protein powder
  • Cocoa powder

*A special thanks to Oikos (Stonyfield) and Amazing Grass for donating product for us to use in our smoothie bar!
