Purple Power Punch Smoothie (My Kids' Fave)

4.6
(5)

This is my go-to smoothie of choice. My kids (all 4) absolutely love it for the flavor as well as the purple color. It's fun, easy, and the kids can even help out! Feel free to add or subtract any of the fruit, honey, or sugar to your taste preference.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup nonfat vanilla yogurt (such as Dannon® Light and Fit®)

  • ½ cup sliced strawberries

  • ½ cup water

  • ½ cup nonfat powdered milk

  • 1 banana, cut in chunks

  • ¼ cup blueberries, or to taste

  • ¼ cup raspberries, or to taste

  • ¼ cup blackberries, or to taste

  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder

  • 1 cup crushed ice

  • 3 tablespoons turbinado sugar (such as Sugar in the Raw®)

  • 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

  1. Pulse yogurt, strawberries, water, powdered milk, banana, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and protein powder together in a blender until well-mixed. Add ice, sugar, and honey and blend until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

Local honey helps with allergies. Being a nurse and mother who has 4 kids with allergies, this is important to me.

Whey protein is awesome and since we drink our smoothies as a meal replacement for breakfast or lunch, it is important to add protein. It also helps to thicken and smooth the drink.

For a thinner smoothie, use 1/2 to 3/4 cup regular milk instead of the powdered milk and water. For a thicker smoothie, use more powder- either protein powder or powdered milk. Only add 1 tablespoon at a time and blend. Then, check consistency again.
