The Best Smoothies Taste GOOD! Try this Healthy Kid Smoothie
Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Your Picky Toddler
When it comes to food…my children, like most American children/all children are very picky and don’t seem to eat enough to sustain even a very small human. One thing they do like are Smoothies…and you can put ANYTHING in a smoothie…ANYTHING. This month, Dal and I are going to be sharing some of our favorite meal replacement smoothies that are fun, healthy, fruity, high in protein, and full of green things…(except for this one…this one is pink 🥰) . Our first smoothie is this easy and delicious Strawberry Fields Superfood Smoothie (Recipe below).
So here’s what we had for breakfast! Strawberry Smoothie with Frozen Strawberries…and toast!
First, we started out with these awesome portioned plates (check out the link)
I like them so much! They remind me that my kids don’t need to eat a TON of food, and they help me to add fruits and veggies that I usually wouldn’t . So, I started them out with some cheese slices. We just buy the sliced cheese from Costco and then I break them up into little cracker sizes…because if it looks like a cracker their more likely to eat it.
For the grain….I’m trying to get my kids to like bread. I don’t know where they came from or what happened in their life to convince them that bread is poison, but they hate it. We buy wheat bread from Costco. It looks like this…and, may I add, is delicious and tastes homemade. Here’s the link to our PIZZA CUTTER and CUTTING BOARD
And LIFE HACK, use a pizza cutter to cut it…again if it looks like a cracker!!! So, add bread with a light layer of Costco strawberry jam to the plate
HEALTHY STRAWBERRY SHAKE FOR KIDS
Ok on to the smoothie! So, I call this one the Strawberry Fields Smoothie. It’s got strawberries, goji berries, ground flax seed, whole milk, greek yogurt, and stevia drops. Here’s the recipe!
Healthy Strawberry Smoothie Recipe For Picky Kids
2 cups Strawberries (frozen, unsweetened)
1.5 cups Whole Milk (I like whole milk for the kids, but almond milk or coconut milk are great too. If you’re making enough to have leftovers or making the smoothie a few hours before wanting to eat it, use almond or coconut milk. The acid in the strawberries will curdle the milk over time.)
1 cup Greek Yogurt
A Few Drops Liquid Stevia (to taste)
3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2-3 Tablespoons Goji Berries (powerful antioxidant and great for eye health)
2-3 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seed (high in omega-3s and fiber)
If you want it to taste really really good, add a pack of TRUE LEMON STRAWBERRY LEMONADE POWDER
Sometimes I add spinach (about a cup), dried coconut, cashews, and oatmeal…get creative!
This recipe will perfectly fill two 14 oz Contigo cups.
Let me know what you think! Scroll for some family pics! If you look close, you’ll see that I bribe my kids with chocolate chips. It’s hard to say no to “come and eat” when you have ten chocolate chips waiting for you. Everyone is pretty grumpy in the morning and chocolate chips seem to help 😉
We love our CONTIGO CUPS! These are the best that I’ve found for spill proof shake drinking.
