Easy Smoothie Recipes For Kids and All The Family
As parents we know how important it is for our kids to eat fruit – but what are we supposed to do when they run the other way at the mention of an apple of a banana? I think I’ve finally uncovered the secret to success… SMOOTHIES!
Drink them in moderation (otherwise they might have a sugar overdose) they’re packed full of vitamins and calcium, and even if your kids are dairy free there are still plenty of recipes options and substitutes to choose from!
Smoothies are great for all the family. From toddlers, teens and adults.
So let’s see how to make smoothies and check out some Smoothie Recipes.
How To Make A Fruit Smoothie
- Remove all of the seeds and stems from your fruit and then dice them up so that they go through the Blender a bit easier.
- If the fruits you want to use are in season then go ahead and buy them fresh, if not you can use frozen fruit to make smoothies too. It’s cheaper frozen and lasts longer
- Add the liquid into the blender first, and then add about half ofyour fruit and other ingredients. Whizz it up, and then add the rest of the ingredients a bit at a time. If you want to add ice cubes then add them in at the very end. Oh and don’t forget to replace the lid each time or you’ll end up wearing breakfast!
- If you want to make a batch of smoothies so you can eat them for breakfast then you can store them in the fridge in an airtight container and they’ll last for one or two days, or pop them in the freezer in a ice lolly moulds for a fun way to eat a frozen smoothie.
