Kids beg for smoothies and can help collect and add the ingredients. You can do a lot of experimenting with smoothies. Use fresh fruit and add ice if that's what you have on hand. I just find using frozen fruit easier. The bananas can be fresh or frozen. Adjust the amount of juice to make the smoothie the consistency you like.
Nolan and Vivian found my little umbrellas to decorate their drinks. You could also add an orange slice, mango chunk or fresh strawberry.
Adults can make this same type of smoothie and add a little something extra to turn it into a refreshing adult beverage.
