Go shopping! Have your kid help you pick out a fresh fruit and a fresh vegetable. Involving your kids in picking out produce is a great way to get them to try new things!
Tip: If you are trying to introduce your kids to new veggies, start with a small amount and slowly increase it over time. Kids can have sensitive taste buds and it can take a while for them to adjust.
Prep your produce! Wash and chop your selected produce. You should have about 2 cups of produce. Some combos we love: Spinach+Strawberry Carrot+Apple Cucumber+Melon
Turn on some music and have some fun! Have your kids measure out the prepped produce, milk or alternative, and yogurt. We use flavored yogurt, such as vanilla, to satisfy out sweet tooth.
Help your kids put everything in the blender. Add any spices or flavors. My kid loves cinnamon or vanilla, but you might try other flavors depending on your kids unique tastes.
Blend and serve! This recipe makes two kid sized smoothies. Don't be afraid to experiment with fruits, veggies, and flavors!
For a little more fun, start a recipe book and write down your favorite recipes. Have your kids come up with creative recipe names or decorate recipe pages.
