Blueberry Hemp Seed Green Smoothie

Blueberry Hemp Seed Green Smoothie, an easy way to get kids to drink their greens!

Blueberry Hemp Seed Green Smoothie, an easy way to get kids to drink their greens!

I let my almost 4 year old take the lead when concocting this smoothie and I think he did pretty well!  If given the opportunity he would make smoothies everyday.  I admit, sometimes it’s a hassle and I hate cleaning out the blender, but I can’t say “no” to getting him to drink multiple servings of fruits and vegetables before noon!

This smoothie is so super heathy and loaded with antioxidants, which will boost their little germ fighting immune systems!  It also contains fiber and healthy fats that will fuel them up for the day!

Not too sure if your kid will dig hemp seeds?  

Use a different source of healthy fat such as coconut oil, avocado or walnuts.  You can even throw in some chia seeds, which are practically tasteless!

What kid wouldn’t want to drink a smoothie with a face like that?

This smoothie blends spinach, milk, pineapple and a banana making it a great breakfast, after-school snack or dessert! It’s very versatile too! Try adding a dollop of peanut butter for a punch of protein or a dash of cinnamon for a fall flare!

Who says healthy food can’t be fun?!?

Ok, candy corn aren’t healthy, please don’t hold it against me!  They just make the perfect monster teeth :)

FYI, Jelly Belly Brand Candy Corn is not made with gelatin.  However, it does contain beeswax.

If you don’t have chocolate protein powder just add a little cacao/cocoa powder for the decadent chocolate flavor!  Other excellent add-ins are hemp seeds, chia seeds, spinach or maca powder!  For a drinkable smoothie add 1 cup of liquid!
