I’ll be the first to admit that we are not the healthiest eaters around. Now that my kids are 17 & 19 I can introduce them to new foods but I can’t force them to try them. If I had 201 Healthy Juices and Smoothies for Kids when they were younger I’m sure we all would have gotten many more fruits and vegetables into our diet over the years. Since my hope is that your kids will eat healthier than mine do, I’m giving away a copy of this book.
Why would parents give their children generic, sugar-filled juice from concentrate when they can give them a glass of Blackberry Banana Blast, Pineapple Tangerine Twister, or Green Veggie Goodness? When study after study shows that store-bought juices can be more trouble than they’re worth, it’s time parents turned to their own kitchens to find sources for the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients growing kids need. With this book, parents will introduce their children to the wonderful flavors of fruits and vegetables with every delightful glass—and the kids will be begging for more! Here is just one of the 201 easy recipes:
Breakfast Banana Band Smoothie- a source of Vitamin C, Potassium, Lycopene and Fiber
makes 4 1 cup servings
1 cup romaine lettuce
1 cup pineapple peeled and cored
1 pint strawberries
1 banana peeled
1 cup Greek-styled yogurt
1. Place romaine, pineapple, strawberries, and 1/2 cup yogurt in a blender and blend for 30 seconds.
2. Add remaining yogurt and blend until smoothie is desired consistency.
