Banana Smoothie and Squooshi Review

What is a Squooshi?  Squooshi is a reusable food pouch for babies and kids.  They come in all sorts of cute designs and colors and have a sturdy zip lock seal in the bottom .  What can you put in them?  Anything from baby food, apple sauce, smoothies, yogurt, pudding and more.  They work for all ages to!  C is 5 but he is extremely picky about his food and the containers that they are in . I was excited to try the Squooshi and see if this would be a new option for him .

Banana Smoothie Recipe

  • 1- banana broken into chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups of ice 
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk 
  • 2 Tablespoons of white sugar (optional)
Place all ingredients in the blender and blend for just a second. All done you have a tasty smoothie. You can mix it up by adding additional fruits, yogurt pretty much whatever goes when making a smoothie!

I let C. help me make the smoothie and then we added it into our Squooshi bag.  The Squooshi bags are freezable so you can make some up and have handy for a hot day if you'd like to.

The Squooshi has a zip lock seal in the bottom making it easy to open up and add your drink or food.

We just opened it and poured our smoothie right in from the blender.

Then we closed the seal back up and Mr.C had him a smoothie.  He would not let me get a picture of him with it but I can tell you that Smoothies are an easy way for me to sneak some fruits and veggies into his diet.  He liked the cute designs of the squooshi bags.  I love that I can add applesauce or smoothies and give him a treat in his lunch box or have something healthy on hand for after school in the fridge.  I can't wait to find more healthy options to use in these and see what my picky guy thinks.

When C was done with the bag we just rinsed it out with soapy warm water and let it dry out completely in the drain board.  Sticking it on a bottle holder to dry would work really well also.  Then it is ready to use the next time.
