Smoothie love is everywhere. I have to admit that it is THE easiest way to get my daughters some whole food nutrition. My daughters are both very active with sports and that often means running off to a game or practice as soon as homework is done. A smoothie to-go will hold them over until dinner and it is a great opportunity to sneak some nutrition in them.
There are ways to boost the nutrition in a smoothie so they are more than a fruit milk shake. You can sneak many of these smoothie-boosters without anyone knowing they are eating healthier.
To add a protein boost to a smoothie consider adding any of the following
-Peanut or Almond butter
-Chia, flax, pumpkin, or sunflower seeds
Spinach, Blueberry and Flax Smoothie
4-5 ice cubes
1 cup orange juice
1 cup spinach
1 cup blueberries
1 tsp golden flax
Add items to blender in order listed.
Blend for 10-20 seconds or until desired consistency.
