We made blueberry-zucchini smoothies, frozen yogurt drops, and squeeze yogurt pops. Before you judge- you can't even taste the zucchini and I didn't share with my kiddos that it was in there. They never suspected a thing...
You will need: (all amounts are approximate- use your taste to determine your preferences)
A small organic zucchini, peeled and chopped
A small organic apple, peeled and chopped (sweet varieties work best)
A pint or so of organic blueberries (frozen or fresh will work)
Organic Greek yogurt (I recommend raw)
Milk or coconut milk, to thin the mixture as necessary
Flax seed (optional)
Raw honey or maple syrup to sweeten, optional
First, we combined our ingredients with an immersion blender. Here you see raw, organic yogurt, frozen blueberries (fresh are great too), chopped zucchini, chopped apple and flax seed.
freeze pop molds. (Check out my whole post on making homemade squeeze yogurt here.)
making frozen yogurt drops. Here's our two-year-old doing just that!
Once our yogurt pops and yogurt drops were complete, it was time to make a smoothie. I added a touch more milk to thin the consistency of the original mixture some more, and voila! instant smoothie. Store this in a mason jar in the refrigerator for a couple of days so you don't have to make a new smoothie everyday. You just shake it up if the ingredients have begun to separate, and you're good to drink!
That wraps up my yummy blueberry-zucchini yogurt done three ways. What are you eating right now that's healthy and versatile?
By the way, we're making all this blueberry deliciousness because we're reading Blueberries for Sal this week in our Five in a Row homeschool.
