Healthy drinks you and your kids are sure to enjoy
Creamsicle Smoothie Recipe
So sweet and delicious, your kids won’t even know how healthy this drink is: packed with protein, vitamin D, and vitamin C, this is one treat you’ll feel great about giving them.
Chocolate-Almond Smoothie Recipe
This smoothie tastes like dessert, but is really packed with flavonoids, vitamin E, and tons of protein. We won’t tell you if you don’t.
Tropical Kale Smoothie Recipe
Mango and pineapple team up to cover the healthy taste of kale — and provide plenty of vitamins C and A to boot. For smoothie beginners, you can cut the recommended amount of kale in half.
Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
Ah, peanut butter and banana. What would childhood have been without this classic flavor combination? Blend them together for one tasty and healthful drink.
Coconut Brain Power Smoothie
As every kid knows, studying hard requires good snacks. What better than to give your child a smoothie that can help improve circulation and blood flow to the brain? Yummy and good for you: win/win.
Strawberry Smoothie Recipe
Pure, simple, and delicious. You can sub out frozen strawberries for fresh in the winter, or to add a little extra chill factor in the summer.
Peach-Ginger Banana Smoothie
Healthy, fresh tasting, and with a grown-up flavor you can enjoy, too — try making a double batch to split before school.
Antioxidant Powerhouse Kale Smoothie
Three kinds of berries and a healthy dose of pomegranate juice provide a major antioxidant boost while masking kale’s bitter flavor.
Sugar Plum Fairy Smoothie
This smoothie is a little more complicated, but we promise it’s worth it for this unusual and delicately spiced treat. You can order yucuma powder, which the recipe calls for, from Amazon.com — it’s a healthy, low glycemic sweetener.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Normally, pie is an occasional treat, but when you blend it up into this healthy smoothie, it can be pie day every day.
