10 Smoothies for Kids

Incorporating veggies into the family diet in subtle ways can help expand the palate and cultivate a taste for vegetables. Smoothies use the natural sweetness of fruit as the perfect disguise. Pineapple, orange, and grapes are particularly good smoothie ingredients to marry with vegetables. Apples can offset greens with a slight “bite” such as spinach. Cucumber adds a crisp finish without taking center stage.

Visual appeal is key to introducing new foods, making cranberries and beets invaluable for their pop of lush color. And your Vitamix machine insures the perfect texture that makes “smoothies” live up to their name.

Young children may enjoy making up their own names for their favorite smoothie, adding to the fun.
