Equipment

  • High powered blender (I use a Vitamix blender)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • ½ tsp blue spirulina
  • 1 large frozen banana or two small frozen bananas. Use fresh overripe bananas if a thinner consistency is desired or if you will not be using a high powered blender that comes with a tamper.
  • 1 cup pineapple pieces frozen
  • 1 cup mango pieces frozen

Instructions
 

  • Add ingredients to the blender in the order that they are listed.
  • Blend all ingredients together in a high powered blender. Use the tamper that comes with your blender to keep the frozen fruit from getting stuck and to keep the ingredients moving.
  • Divide into two bowls and let your kids top it with their favorite toppings.

Notes

If you will be using a standard blender, consider using a fresh overripe banana (instead of frozen) to help keep the frozen fruit from getting stuck in the blades. 
Start blending on the lowest setting. Gradually increase the blending speed. Use the tamper that comes with your high powered blender to press the frozen strawberries and banana down into the blades and to keep the ingredients moving.
If you choose to substitute a frozen fruit, use a fruit that is mild in color so your kids are still served a pretty blue smoothie bowl.
Let your kids top their own smoothie bowls - it helps encourage independence in the kitchen.
This recipe makes two smoothie bowls. It's the perfect sized snack for kids!
