* 1/2 cup of your child's favorite fruit, such as peaches, bananas, pineapples, strawberries, mangos, etc.
* 3/4 cup of yogurt
* 1 cup milk
* 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)

Peel the fruit, if appropriate, and cut them up into small pieces. Put all of the ingredients into a blender and puree them together until smooth. Pour into a chilled glass and serve with a straw. Keep in mind that you may have to add ice or use frozen fruit if you really want to serve it cold. Also, a banana may be needed to get the smoothie to the right consistency (thick and creamy).

Healthy Smoothie Recipe Ideas:
* use nonfat yogurt
* use skim milk
* use an artificial sweetener
* add a supplement, such as Carnation Instant Breakfast Mix, to get more vitamins, minerals and calories into your smoothie
* keep the skin on when using fruits like apples and pears to get extra fiber into your smoothie
Alternative Smoothie Recipe Ideas:
If your child doesn't like this fruit yogurt smoothie recipe, or in order to offer some variety, you might consider:
* using ice cream instead of yogurt, although then you basically have a milk shake and not a smoothie
* making a soy smoothie using soy yogurt and either soy milk (or rice milk) instead of cow's milk and regular yogurt if your child has a milk allergy
* using 100% fruit juice instead of milk and yogurt. If you use orange juice that is high in calcium, this smoothie becomes a good way for kids with milk allergies to get their calcium.
* using honey instead of sugar
* adding peanut butter to add more protein to your smoothie (goes best with a banana as the other main ingredient)
