Riddle: What do you get when you mix a Fruttare Fruit Bar in a blender with strawberries and bananas? Answer: A ridiculously good time! I've never been one for riddles, but this one is simple. And delicious.
Lately Mr. A, Little J and I have been on a smoothie kick. When you have a three year old, you’re always on the hunt for ways to enjoy a sweet dessert without creating a mess. Enter the smoothie. If made correctly, not only is it packed with fruits and veggies, but it's virtually mess free. It’s a win-win for everyone.
If you're a fan of strawberries, bananas and coconuts, you'll love this refreshing smoothie. It's mouthwateringly delicious AND healthy. My secret ingredient? Fruttare Fruit Bars. Fruttare Fruit and Juice Bars are packed with real fruit, creamy milk and refreshing juice. Though I kept it simple with the Strawberry & Milk bar for my recipe, they have plenty of flavors to choose from, like Pineapple, Lime, Mango and Black Cherry.
I've been experimenting with this smoothie for the past week. Originally I tried the Peaches & Milk Fruttare Bar, but Little J eats strawberries by the carton so I know I can always count on having a few containers of strawberries lying around for this recipe. I added a bit spinach and it taste just as awesome. The sweetness of the Fruttare Fruit Bars gives it just enough flavor to hide those veggies from your kiddos. For the purposes of this recipe, I kept it pretty simple. This way you can add to it and subtract as you see fit.

Last night we enjoyed our dinner and Fruttare Smoothie from the comfort of our balcony. There's something about the fading sunset, bare feet and smoothies that make me feel at home.
