Robin Mari of Pennsylvania said this recipe is great because her picky sun conure loves it.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup orange juice, apple juice or grapefruit juice
2 Tablespoons all natural vanilla yogurt
4 large strawberries
1 small banana
2 applie slices

Recipe Instructions: 

1. Combine the fruit and yogurt in the blender.
2. Add juice until the mixture reaches preferred consistency (depending on how chunky you want it).
3. Pour into bowl or small cup and serve to your bird.

Mari said that the fruit can be substituted with any fresh vegetable that your bird enjoys.

Mari's Congo African grey Gabby and sun conure Sammie fight over the glass and the Feathered Friend's Smoothie ends up mostly on her. But her birds enjoy it and drink it up.

We drink smoothies often. I never thought about offering some to my birds. Thanks for the idea - I will definitely try your recipe & give them a taste!

My four birds all enjoy small amounts of vanilla flavored Almond Milk. It is high in nutrition, tastes great, and is NON-Dairy. When they see me with the glass, they all try to be first in line.

Great idea! Can't wait to try it. And yea, I was also wondering about the lactose thingy...

I thought birdys can't have yogurt, because they are lactose intolerant? Well, it does look like an exciting dish, though!
