We all enjoy getting our kids to eat healthily. With some kids it is easier said than done. Making smoothies is a great way to add a few servings of fruits and vegetables to their daily diet. Vegetables you say? YES! Here is the recipe for Naomi’s favorite smoothie, that she sometimes mistakenly calls a milkshake Well, there is no real recipe, but this is what we add;
5 types of frozen fruit- peaches, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, & melon (you might recognize this combo as a bag you can find at Costco)
A few mini carrots
a cup or two of spinach
When I first started making these smoothies I would distract the kids while I put in the spinach and carrots. My girls are usually not a fan of either, in any form. Now the girls help me put them in the blender and only occasionally comment about the “salad”.
Now I don’t feel so bad about feeding them a steady diet of carbs and cheese.
