4 Easy Smoothie Recipes For Kids

Smoothies are an excellent way to get your kids away from traditional breakfast foods that aren't so healthy but are very convenient. Smoothies don't need to be be friend in butter and they surely don't need any extra fats added in them (unless of course they are healthy fats!) Parents are constantly becoming more aware of the food we put into our children's bodies. Smoothies are a easy convenient way to help our children eat more healthy fruit and less convenient junk food!

One of the best parts about choosing smoothies as a breakfast option is the convenience factor! Smoothies can be prepared ahead of time in ziplock bags and frozen in the right proportionals so all you need to do is pull the fruit out and add some juice, yogurt or whatever else you like to add.

Remember, that losing weight isn't just about eating right, it's also about living an more active lifestyle. Many people are under the misconception that if you eat right you will lose weight. Although that may be true for some people it's not true for all people. And on the other hand some people think all you need to do is exercise and you will lose weight. Again, for some people it works for for many of us it's the healthy combination of both exercise and diet that will help us reach the healthier us that we are reaching for.

  • 1 Large Banana
  • 1/4 Cup Blueberries
  • 2 Tbsp. Vanilla or Strawberry Greek Yogurt
  • 3/4 Cup Strawberries or 3-5 Large Strawberries
  • 4 Ice Cubes

Directions: Add all ingredients to blender and blend 10-15 seconds. If you want your smoothie to be a little thicker and icier then add more ice cubes. If you want a thinner smoothie you can add less ice or use cold water instead. Personally I prefer a few extra ice cubes but then I blend it a little bit longer. Enjoy!

Before I go into my rant here, I trust everybody had an extraordinary clean eating weekend! What was the most enjoyable healthy meal you had? 

Okay, SO, starting 7am early today, I was strolling into my house after a run and had a message from a friend who was requesting that I come and live with her for a week to help her get through some emotional trouble with her now ex boyfriend... so as I was packing and getting ready I started to pack my blender ( I have a Nutribullet so it's not all that large ) and for a I second I thought to myself "should I really bring the Nutribullet?" My conclusion was DUH! It's small and convenient and fits in a bag just as easy as a hair dryer so why the hell not?

One of my favorite things about smoothies is the fact that people that don't normally have them get excited about them, heck, I still get excited about them. Who doesn't like their favorite, fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables ground up into a a delicious, healthy, drinkable meal? Seriously? I know that smoothies alone won't be able to cheer my friend up, but I am hoping that my company, with the help of a healthy smoothie, will be a good start. This is going to be a long week.
