10 Smoothie Recipes Your Picky Eaters Will Love
Life can get hectic and that means our diets are often chaotic; more junk, fewer vegetables is not a way to grow up. We totally understand how hard it can be and are here to help! Our babies and kids deserve the best start at life, so we wanted to share our secret weapon to feeding our multiracial families: vegetable smoothies!
The last few years we’ve used green smoothies to help kids eat (or drink) most of their fruits and vegetables. But what do you when you have a picky eater? These 10 smoothie recipes are sure to be loved by even the pickiest eater!
To get started, we use a strong blender. While standard blenders will work for simple smoothie recipes, high powered blenders like the Vitamix or Ninja Professional thoroughly break down the fiber of greens so the smoothie is smooth.
As part of the Feeding Our Multiracial Families series, we’re exploring delicious ways to redefine traditional family recipes, the fun of cooking with kids and creating a unique family food culture for multiracial families that is both satisfying and healthy.
