A key component to healthy eating is to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables each day. One of the most delicious ways that I have found to make this happen is to blend up that variety into a smoothie. Even my “won’t eat vegetables” kid will gladly suck down a smoothie with lots of nutrition packed into it. Smoothies are a great way to introduce children to new fruits and vegetables. Let them pick out a new fruit to try when you are at the grocery store and add it to a tried and true smoothie recipe. Smoothie recipes are a perfect way to get the kids into the kitchen with you too. They can easily grab the frozen fruit and drop it into a blender.
Basic smoothie recipes are simple………….a little liquid, fruit and/or vegetables, ice, and maybe some special ad-ins. Blend till it looks good. Anyone can do that, right? Today I am sharing a couple of my favorite smoothie recipes and asked my friends to share their favorites as well. Have fun with these recipes and let us know your favorites by leaving a comment for us.
