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!
- ½ cup milk of your choice (soy, hemp, almond, etc.)
- ½ cup orange juice
- 1 banana
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- handful baby spinach
- 1 heaping tablespoon hemp seeds
- Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend away!
