Use the juice, yogurt, and the bananas to adjust consistency.  My kid likes it thinner, so for him I use more juice. If you get it too thin, just add another banana or a little more yogurt.

Once you've got the basic recipe down, try a few variations to make it your own.  My family likes it when I freeze the bananas first (just be sure to peel them before you stick them in the freezer!).

And my favorite addition? Flaxseed meal. It's a superfood packed with fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3s. Blend it up well, and it won't make your smoothie gritty at all!

The result is a delicious, sweet, creamy smoothie packed with vitamins and nutrients.  My 7-year old LOVES it.  And try giving it a fun name, too.  In our house we call it the green monster!
