Try these easy smoothie recipes to fuel up your children for an action packed day.  These are drinks they’ll actually request and are oh so good for them, not to mention taste good going down.

I recommend a high powered blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec.  You can adjust (change the milk or juice) or add (chia seeds, spirulina or wheatgrass, etc) to these smoothies as you see fit.  You’ll notice most recipes call for  frozen fruit.  This is to have a cold drink – you can always use ice instead. Experiment and enjoy!!
