Superfood (Popsicle) Smoothie

My boys do not eat veggies. It drives me nuts but honestly, I can’t blame them. I wanted nothing to do with anything green when I was growing up. So I’ve had to get creative in how I get them to eat their veggies. I’ll be sharing all the recipes that work for me, but the staple for us is the green smoothie every morning. It’s loaded with leafy greens, antioxidant berries and vitamin rich fruits. This recipe is a drink my kids scream with excitement over. I hope you have as much success as I have, subtly incorporating nutrition into your kids diets. 🙂

Bonus: During the summer months, I use these silicone popsicle molds and freeze the smoothie. I let them eat “popsicles” for breakfast and they are thrilled. They haven’t caught on that the popsicle they are eating (also their favorite ice cream truck treat) is actually just a smoothie in disguise!

Here are a few of the tools that I use to prepare and serve the smoothies with.

Magic Bullet: I also own a Ninja and I always reach for the magic bullet. It’s light, compact and easy to clean. I use this to puree almost everything. The only time I pull out the Ninja is if I’m making smoothies for more than 4 people or pureeing for soup.

Stainless Steel Serving Cups: I have tried to eliminate plastic over the years. It has been a process, but plastic cups, containers, plates, silverware, etc really aren’t good for human health. They leach toxins over years of use and there is a substantial plastic waste problem polluting our oceans and land. While these cups are more expensive than plastic, they are a better, safer option for serving drinks to your kids.

Lyteshow : This is an electrolyte and mineral supplement that is especially beneficial in the winter, when we typically don’t drink enough water. Add a few drops in your smoothie but also add to your water that you drink throughout the day for added hydration and better looking skin. This product also contains added minerals that your body typically lacks during the winter months. It’s an added insurance to you and your children’s health!

Kid-Approved Superfood Smoothie
This drink is loaded with Vitamin C. I use the Magic Bullet to puree all of my fruits and veggies so you'll notice my measurements are adjusted for the size of the larger cup that comes with the Magic Bullet. If you don't own a Magic Bullet, I highly recommend investing in one. It is the easiest and most efficient tool that I've found works for a busy morning routine. There is very little to clean and it's small so it doesn't take up a lot of space. I've included links to the probiotic drops that I add on occasion (about once a week) to help prevent my kids from getting sick. I've also included LYTE rehydration drops. I add a couple drops for added minerals, but that is up to each individual person. I swear it helped with my kids not getting sick over the winter. We had constant runny noses, but that's it!

Recipe Notes

The great thing about this recipe is that you can experiment with different healthy ingredients.  Some other items I like to experiment with are Chia and Flax seeds, greek yogurt, peanut butter or nuts.

Depends on the feel/fit, i most likely would not, but they look good on you!

Whenever I see the black leather leggings, it reminds me off Ross from Friends when he gets super sweaty, can’t get them back up, is using baby powder and all the things to try snd get them back up. 😂

Definitely with the (p)leather 😉 pants! Looks great on you! Much “fresher” than with the jeans!

They look really cute on you! You’re inspiring me to try!

I saw the pleather in store today. My 11year old son looked at them and said “what the heck is this?!” My thoughts exactly son!

I like the sweater with jeans look a lot!

Does the pants link take anyone else to black jeans? Not sure I’d wear them, but I’d at least try on. Why not? Maybe you’ll be surprised.

Super cute on you. I would have to try them on… I’d wear them to work if I liked them on.

I wouldn’t . Love the sweater with jeans!

YES!! Absolutely!! The jeans for everyday and the pleasure for going out with hubs or friends. Love it!!

Yeah I keep seeing them but I am not sure if it’s my style

Maybe to a concert
