Children love smoothies. They are easy to make, convenient, and tasty! Add a little yogurt and berries to it and you will have a smoothie that your child will love for weeks to come.

What happens when you make a smoothie? You place a smoothie blender in your blender and pour in the ingredients. Some smoothies are more creamy than others and some may need a little longer to blend. There are also some that are more nutritious than others.
A creamy smoothie is delicious. Add healthy ingredients such as fruits and veggies, they will help keep your child’s energy level high.
Juice is not always nutritious. A smoothie that includes fruit and yogurt contains fiber, vitamins, and minerals that are beneficial to the digestive system. Fruit has a low glycemic index that helps to balance blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that children who drink lots of fruit juice have lower incidences of obesity, allergies, and digestive disorders.
It is healthy to serve a full glass of fruit juice to your child as well. Although your child may prefer to have a cup of vanilla ice cream, there is no harm in serving them a glass of fruit juice. You can add other things to the juice to flavor it for your child.
The key to making a smoothie healthy is to keep it very simple. Do not over mix ingredients and do not add an excess of ingredients.
When making a smoothie, start with the purest ingredients you can find. Blended berries, frozen yogurt, and frozen or fresh fruit and vegetable are the best choices. Blend all the ingredients together until you get a smooth consistency.
To add flavor, you can add yogurt, spices, and other flavors. The possibilities are almost endless when it comes to flavor and this is the time to experiment with different flavors.
Healthy smoothies are easy to make and can easily become a family favorite. Add a few fruits and veggies and a little yogurt and you have a new family favorite. All you need is a blender and some time.
