Parents are sometimes left with the quandary of how to get their kids to eat enough vegetables.
Try hiding them in an easy to make fruit/veggie smoothie!
Broccoli Blueberry Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup steamed broccoli
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
Blend ingredients until smooth.
Try making the smoothie for dessert with your leftover broccoli from dinner. The frozen berries make the smoothie extra cool and add great texture.
Substitute with raspberries or strawberries instead of blueberries.
- 1 Banana, cut in chunks
- ½ Apple, cored and chopped or sliced
- 1 cup White Grapes
- 1 cup Fat-Free Vanilla Yogurt (or Plain Yogurt and ¼ teaspoon vanilla)
- 1-2 cups fresh Spinach Leaves
Also try making the smoothie with frozen grapes and frozen banana chunks.
Try taking any of your kids favorite smoothies and add a handful of spinach for extra nutrition or add steamed broccoli if you don't want an obvious green color in the drinks.
