Making 'super smoothies'

One afternoon my kids were asking for a snack and I was looking for a little boost myself. We came up with this recipe ourselves and it was a hit. My girls were begging for thirds (I cut them off at seconds)!

The ingredients are super healthy and so tasty you or your kids won't even believe how good it is for you. Packed with nutrients, this is a new go to snack for us.

Kid-FriendlySuper Smoothie

Serves (2)

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 cup frozen wild blueberries (make sure there is no sugar in the ingredients)

1 banana (I omitted this on the second batch and it was still really tasty, my girls didn't even notice)

2 handfuls spinach (I promise you won't even taste it)

Blend and serve! Yummo!

My kids love helping out in the kitchen, especially when we make smoothies. They love to pick out ingredients and throw them in the blender. Getting kids involved in making healthy meals is a great learning experience for them. You can teach them about healthy foods and why they are good for us. My kids love to know that what they are eating is healthy and that the food they are eating is nourishing their little bodies to grow up strong. I always say that the best way to get kids to eat healthy is to lead by example. So get them involved in the kitchen and make it educational at the same time. Your kids will love it.
