Silly Monkey Smoothie

Picky eaters can really be a challenge. The Silly Monkey Smoothie was created one morning when my son had requested his third or fourth bowl of sugary breakfast cereal. When he refused to eat something, anything else I decided to turn a battle into fun...with a blender!

Silly Monkey Smoothie

I discovered that I could probably sneak almost anything into a smoothie and it would still be a hit! Really, what's not to like? Bananas, sunflower butter, milk and juice mixed together makes for a delicious breakfast or snack.

For quick and easy smoothie preparation, keep different frozen fruits on hand. When bananas in our house start getting too ripe, I peel them and put them in a freezer bag where they keep nicely.

I hope this smoothie recipe is a hit with the "silly monkeys" at your house!


3 medium bananas, frozen
2 tablespoons sunflower butter (I use Sunbutter)
1/2 cup apple juice
3/4 cup "safe" milk

1) Soften the bananas slightly by leaving at room temperature for 15-30 minutes or by microwaving on high for 30 seconds. When soft enough to cut, slice bananas into slices that are about 1 inch thick. Place banana slices, sunflower butter, apple juice and milk in a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
