We love smoothie recipes for kids! We have a healthy smoothie pretty much every day in our family. It’s so great. I’d say our Wildside Blendtec Blender is the most used appliance in the kitchen. It never collects dust. I always tell my friends that it’s worth the $400 price tag, just think of all the doctor’s visits you’ll avoid. Our family hardly ever gets sick and I think it’s because we get enough fruits and vegetables every day from our smoothies. All of our smoothies are also dairy free for those of you like us with terrible milk allergies.
A lot of people ask where I get my paper straws. I purchase them on Amazon from this seller. Call me Sarah Palin, but I can’t drink a smoothie without a straw!
This smoothie is very very sweet. You could even add a 2 cups of spinach and your kids would never know. Shhh…
- 2 c. frozen cherries (we purchased ours at Costco)
- 1 banana
- 2 c. not from concentrate orange juice
- 2 c. almond or rice milk
- 2 T. gogi berries, a superfood
- 1 T. chia seeds, a superfood
- Add all ingredients in order into your high speed blender. Blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Makes about 7 cups. Enjoy!
