Need a quick healthy meal or snack for your kids or yourself? Try my simple smoothie recipe.
My kids have a favorite smoothie that is so easy to make. Smoothies are delicious and my kids love them. Well, who am I kidding, I love them too. Moms need simple and healthy too. Smoothies are a quick, easy delicious breakfast, snack, or light lunch. I love to feed my kids all the healthy food combined in a smoothie. It is so filling it can be a light meal in itself.
My kids were introduced to smoothies at a school event where the teachers, staff, and parent volunteers served smoothies to the kids prior to a big test. Ever since that day my kids ask for smoothies frequently and I am happy to fix them this healthy food.
Use Frozen Fruits
I like to use frozen fruits for several reasons. I can keep the frozen fruits on hand in the freezer so whenever we want to make a smoothie we can. Also the frozen fruits make the smoothie the perfect cold temperature. As my son says, “It’s perfectly cold and but not too cold to give me a brain freeze.” I love serving him this favorite smoothie because it puts a big smile on his face. A sweet drink they love that is also healthy is exactly what I look for when feeding my kids.
Recipe is so Easy
This smoothie recipe is so easy kids can even make it themselves. My son pulls out the food processor and piles in all the ingredients himself to make himself a smoothie. This is a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen and start to learn some self-care in preparing their own food.
Use these five healthy ingredients to make your smoothie:
- yogurt (this recipe uses strawberry yogurt but any flavor would work)
- frozen blueberries
- frozen strawberries
- fresh banana
- apple juice
