Parents and kids can both get excited about this Super Kids Smoothie! It’s sugar-free but is naturally sweet. This smoothie is perfect for kids with food allergies and is dairy and gluten free. The pineapple aids digestion and the strawberries help your immune system. The chia seeds are a super-food and add lots of Omega 3’s and fiber. The best thing about chia is that it doesn’t have a taste and creates a slight thickening effect so your smoothie will be smoothier (is that a word?). You can remove the chia and the yogurt if you don’t have those on hand and the smoothie will still taste wonderful and tropical.
Did you know you can use the core of the pineapple in your smoothies? It’s supposed to be very healthy for you and can help with joint pain and arthritis (that’s what I heard from the Blendtec man at Costco anyway). I used the core in this smoothie and it was very tasty! This recipe makes 6-8 one cup servings and was about $5 total to make.
- 2 cups fresh pineapple
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1 C. Vanilla Soy Yogurt
- 1 T. Chia Seeds
- 1 T. Organic Agave Nectar
- 3-4 cups Rice Milk
- Include all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth. On my Blendtec, I used the frozen foods setting twice (so about a minute and a half). Serve with mint leaves as a garnish if desired.
