Kids Can Make: Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie

This all-in-one milk-and-cookies smoothie makes a nice change of pace for a summer breakfast or afternoon snack. For little kids: Let them[ help press the buttons on the blender. (Be sure to let it run for a full minute before you add the ice so the oatmeal-and-raisin mixture gets as smooth as possible.) For big kids: Let them measure the ingredients-it's the perfect time to teach them the difference between wet and dry ingredient measuring cups.]
