We all know that we're supposed to get a few servings of fruits and even more servings of vegetables a day....kids and adults included. Well, as you may have guessed from the title, a great trick on how to get these tasty treats into your daily diet is through milkshakes, smoothies, and juices. Now, I know this isn't new, but I just want to remind everyone of how delicious and nutritious a smoothie can be, especially when made at home. And if your kids get involved in the process, even better.
Here are three tried, tested, and oh so approved recipes from young athletes with selective appetites (AKA Picky Eaters). Enjoy!
Berry Yogurt Smoothie
All you need to do is throw in some cut up strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, a handful of spinach, yogurt of your choice, and some milk of your choice (almond, soy, coconut) into a blender or food-processor. Mmmmm, so blissful.
Gone Bananas Milkshake with PB & F
Throw in a banana, some peanut butter, a Tablespoon of flaxseed oil, ice, and milk of your choice into a blender or food processor. Viola!
bunch of spinach, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 pear, 1/2 apple, 1/4 papaya, 1 celery stalk, a bit of parsley, 1 inch fresh ginger root. Put all of these in a juicer or powerful blender until smoothie-like consistency. This is tasty and loved by a 4 year old. If you don't like it, at least you will know that your getting your greens.
