These healthy yogurt fruit smoothies are named in honor of Miss Enigma. Her favorite breakfast day is Smoothie Day. Miss Enigma is a terrifically picky eater. However, on Smoothie Day she cheers, “Yay, smoothies!” In addition to loving fruit smoothies, Miss Enigma is totally in love with Elvis. YES, Elvis! And by far her favorite is Elvis singing Tutti Frutti, All Rooty! (Personally, my favorite version is Val Kilmer rocking Tutti Frutti in the movie Top Secret. But I’m getting us off track.)

So without further ado, let’s get busy blending up some Tutti Frutti Breakfast Smoothies . . . A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-lop-bam-boom! Look for the FREE printable recipe guide at the end of this post.

Note to the grown-ups in the room:

*I only use plain yogurt. I do not like the extra sugar in flavored yogurts.

*A cup of frozen or fresh fruit can be added.

*My kiddos are not big meat eaters, especially little Miss Enigma.  (That’s one of the reasons she’s so darn little!) We add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder to our smoothie and mix it in with the fruit. It blends right in and adds a little protein to the kiddos’ breakfast.

We love smoothies here too! I usually use a couple bananas, yogurt (though I haven’t been brave enough to try the plain, maybe I will now since you do!), frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, peaches, etc), a little milk, and some spinach or kale. Our 5 boys don’t eat all of that fruit by itself (each boy has at least one kind of fruit they do like), and only one of them eats spinach. But they all love the smoothie, and they even know what’s in it!!

I just made one for lunch with plain yogurt, and it’s great!! :) I’m glad I braved it!! ;)

Glad you braved it and had a yummy lunch. The fresh fruit and especially the bananas tend to add plenty of sweetness. Frozen fruits sometimes need a little boost with a teaspoon of agave or a dash of stevia.
