One way to make it easier for kids to eat better foods is to put it in a fun smoothie. And since it is so hot outside – now is the perfect time to whip up a cool, refreshing, and healthy smoothie for your kids to enjoy. They will love it so much and not even realize they are filling their little bodies up with lots of nutrients!

A huge kid favorite smoothie is a Berry Banana Smoothie! It’s so easy to make and is the perfect mid-afternoon snack after playing outside with friends!

This recipe is from HueTrition and they help your kids to make better choices! They have some yummy HueApproved Foods! Huey Berry Banana Smoothie is a HueApproved food!

Criteria for HueApproved Foods:

  • Real food
  • As wholesome as possible

  • Color-packed fuel to color your world

At HueTrition, they divide foods into five categories, grouped by color: blue/purple, red, green, yellow/orange, and white. Dividing fruits and vegetables by color provides an easy way to incorporate nutrient needs and health benefits into our diet. You should aim to consume one of each of the 5 colors every day.

You can make this smoothie with just a few simple ingredients!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup orange juice, nut milk, or soy milk (your choice!)

Tip– add your cup to the freezer about an hour before serving for an extra frosty cold smoothie!

Bananas:

They are packed with vitamins B6 and C, and potassium and fiber. (Source)

  • Bananas help your heart.
  • They help your muscles move well.
  • They help your stomach feel better when it’s sick.

Berries

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and K as well as providing a good dose of fiber, folic acid, manganese, and potassium. Their fiber and fructose content may help regulate blood sugar levels by slowing digestion, and the fiber is thought to have a satiating effect. (Source)

I especially like the criteria that it must be real food. There are too many artificial products in commercially produced foods.
