Banana Breakfast Bash

INGREDIENTS:

1 large banana

1 ripe avocado

8 to 10 ounces reduced-fat milk (Chef Lizzie likes to use a non-dairy milk like oat, almond, or soy.)

2 tablespoons sugar or honey (A little honey accents the fruit flavor -- like salt accents the flavor of other foods.)

PREP:

  • Peel the banana. Break it up into three or four pieces. Put them in the blender.
  • Peel the avocado and remove the pit. (You may need help from a grown-up. Pits can be hard to get out.) Put the avocado in the blender, too.
  • Pour in the milk.
  • Add the sugar.

MIX:

Chef Lizzie says: Remember you should always have a grown-up watch you when using kitchen appliances like a blender.

Put the cover on the blender.

Mix until creamy. It should take about 15 to 25 seconds.

SERVE:

Pour your smoothie into glasses. Yum!
