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!
