Strawberry-Banana Breakfast Milkshake

Kids love milkshakes, they do not always like to eat breakfast. My kids are no different, sometimes a healthy milkshake is a good breakfast when they are on the go. Before sports activities is also a good time for a healthy milkshake as my daughter loves to have one before she goes to Tae Kwon Do class or any other physical activity.

This is a very versatile recipe as you can use any kind of fruit and any kind of yogurt. The wheat germ adds some vitamins, the banana adds protein, and if you are using blueberries instead; it adds a lot of antioxidants. I have the pickiest 3 year old on the planet and she even likes these (and she doesn't like anything, it is so hard to cook for her). Here is what I throw together in a blender for this recipe.

Strawberry-Banana Breakfast Milkshake

1 cup 2% milk
1 container vanilla or strawberry yogurt
1 banana
1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup wheat germ (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a blender and blend well, serve in a tall glass with a straw.

- Substitute any fruit for the strawberries and bananas
- Substitute any yogurt for the vanilla or strawberry
- Make this thicker by using less milk and serve in a parfait cup topped with granola and more whole fruit for a tasty parfait treat.
