Smoothies and Shakes

My grandma would be glad her old blender gets put to such yummy use. Here's some quick and tasty recipes for delicious homemade drinks that your kids will delight in making and slurping!
Don't be afraid to change up the ingredients and experiment with what you have on hand, especially with fruit smoothies--just about any combo turns out and we often include bananas and yogurt.

Apple-Strawberry Smoothies

2 apples, peeled and cut up
1 orange, peeled and cut up
About 1-1/2 cups of frozen whole strawberries
1 12-oz. can of frozen apple juice concentrate
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Blend and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Shakes

3 cups milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tbs. honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Splash of chocolate syrup (optional)

Blend and enjoy or refridgerate until ready to drink.
