I’ve been following Super Healthy Kids for some time now. Amy and Natalie just keep the healthy meal ideas coming. When I found out Amy was coming out with a book, I was all over it. She kindly sent me a complementary book to review and give away!
201 Healthy Smoothies & Juices for Kids: Fresh, Wholesome, No-Sugar-Added Drinks Your Child Will Love comes at good time for me. We’ve been making smoothies for a while now and are admittedly in a rut. It’s also summer and the perfect time to experiment with smoothies and fresh juices.
The book is chock-full of recipes for kids smoothies and juices with a huge variety of fruits and vegetables. And they are really good. I only have a regular blender which works fine for most of the recipes, but some call for a high-powered blender. Also, the juice recipes require a juicer, which I don’t have (yet).
I like smoothies because they are a totally different (and tasty) way for children to experience fresh produce. It’s also nice to whip one up with produce that is looking kind of sickly but is still good to eat. Don’t sneak in the good stuff without your child knowing though. Have them help you make it so they are aware of the healthy items that go into it!
I had Big A help me and she gives a thumbs up or down for the final results. We have some good ones she likes, a couple for me and even one for Little D. He’s not big on “fruit sweet” but was all over the Banana Split Smoothie which has cocoa.
Mango Madness was one of our favorites:
Makes 4, 1 cup servings:
1/2 cup dandelion greens
1/2 cup romaine lettuce
2 mangoes, peeled and pit removed
1 banana peeled
a handful of ice or choose a frozen banana (optional but makes it more slushy)
1/2 cup water
Directions: add the first 5 ingredients and 1/4 cup water in a blender for about 30 seconds pushing food into blades if necessary. Add the remaining 1/4 cup water until it reaches the desired consistency.
In addition to the recipes, there are plenty of tips and fun facts about nutrition throughout the book. Overall, this a must-have book for parents wanting to experiment with kids smoothies and juices.
