Tropical Treasure Smoothie
Making a smoothie with your kids is fun and a great way to get fruits and veggies into their diet! One of our favorites is a tropical smoothie that gets its fabulous green from the baby spinach we put in it! This smoothie is quick and easy with one cup of every ingredient! We made this smoothie in our latest In The Rainbow Kitchen video In the Rainbow Kitchen
Tropical Treasure Smoothies
Making smoothies with your kids is a great way to have a little fun together and get some fantastic fruits and veggies into their diet! You can change it up by combining different fruits and veggies and using various liquids as a base.
We generally use a one cup rule…one cup of everything!!!
- 1 cup Pinapple
- 1 cup Mango (Ataulfo is our favorite type)
- 1 cup Cantaulope
- 1 cup Baby Spinach (or just start out with a couple of leaves)
- 1 cup Coconut Water (add more based on desired texture)
- 1 cup Ice
- Wash all your produce thoroughly.
- Cut up your fruits and veggies.
- Place them all in the blender.
- Add coconut water and ice.
- Blend until smooth.
You can also make delicious popsicles out of your smoothie mix…they are a perfect healthy snack on a hot summer day!
