To say that I really love my daughter's elementary school is an understatement. To help promote health and wellness with the kids, they recently had a smoothie contest. The kids had to come up with a smoothie recipe. They had to include a fruit, vegetable, grain, dairy, and protein. Ariana was super excited about this "challenge," so we sat down together one weekend and created recipes to test out. We came up with three kid-approved smoothie recipes that we think your kids will like too.
My daughter and I love doing things together, especially in the kitchen. Part of the fun of being a Mom is matching outfits with your daughter. (I totally take advantage of it while I can!) These Jessie Steele mommy-and-me aprons are so stinking cute. They have a retro feel with the hot pink and gold dots. The ruffled bottom and bows on the pocket up the cuteness factor a few notches.
But, seriously, how yummy do these smoothies look? Loaded with lots of healthy goodness and 100% kid approved!
- 3/4 cup carrot juice
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1 cup of vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1/4 quick cooking oats, grinded
Using your food processor or blender add your quick-cooking oats first and blend until broken up. Blend together the juices, yogurt and fruit. Pour into glasses and enjoy immediately. Makes about 4 servings.
Purple Magic Smoothie
- 1 cup vanilla honey yogurt
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup blackberries (we used frozen)
- 1/2 cup blueberries (we used frozen)
- 1 cup spinach leaves, fresh
- 1/2 banana
Blend it all together in a blender. Makes about 16 oz, or 2 servings. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
Best Green Smoothie
- 1/2 cup peach slices, frozen
- 1/2 cup pineapple chunks, frozen
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 cup cold water
- 2 fresh bananas
- 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
- 3 cups spinach leaves, fresh
- 1 small container of yogurt, about 6 oz
Blend it all together. You may have to stop and give it a few stirs to ensure all the spinach gets blended well. This recipe makes about 36 ounces, or 4-6 servings.
Our whole family loves these smoothies.
