Kid-Friendly Banana Orange Strawberry Smoothie (The BOSS!)

My niece Kylie cringed at our dairy-free diet when she first came to live with us, but she adapted rather quickly. One of her favorite treats was this banana orange strawberry smoothie.

Kids Can Customize this Banana Orange Strawberry Smoothie

Kylie tried this smoothie with nearly every type of dairy-free milk beverage, and to my surprise, she really liked it with hemp milk. She also gave almond milk the thumbs up, but rice milk didn’t go over as well. It wasn’t rich enough for her tastes, and added a little bitterness.

If they prefer a creamier finish, you can use a frozen banana, broken into chunks. You can also swap in coconut milk (lite or full fat) for the milk beverage. The latter suggestion will add a coconut vibe to the flavor.

We usually make this smoothie without blueberries, since I don’t always have them on hand. But Kylie insists that they make it better. We think summer raspberries would also be delicious.
