Think of food for your body like gas for a car. That's how Linda Bartholomay explains healthy food choices. She works for Sanford Health in Fargo, N.D. She helps kids learn to eat healthfully. What happens "if you fuel your body with potato chips and snack cakes all the time?" she asks. "You're not going to go very well." Your body runs best when you give it quality fuel.

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!
