Hallowe'en Smoothies for Kids by Kids

Follow Me on Pinterest

The first smoothie-- SCARY FRUIT SMOOTHIE-- is made by a couple of charming children from Ireland. Their smoothie involves cranberry juice, banana and raspberres. The boy says that any fruit is possible but that raspberries make it look more like blood. I think your little goblins might enjoy making this.  They float a couple of marshallow eyeballs in their drinks (optional)



The second smoothie for kids by kids is a very healthy smoothie made by one little witch.  It uses diced pumpkin, mango (she calls it canteloupe but it says mango under the video), carrot juice, and banana.  There appears to be a little container of honey that doesn't get used-- it is optional I guess.  This smoothie really does look quite tasty.  (If your kids don't like pumpkin, I'd suggest just going with the other ingredients, all orange).

                                       


The third video is another brother-sister team.  They call this a "Smoothie Challenge-- Yummy or Gross".  Your kids will likely want to do a similar challenge, particular where the 'surprise' factor is involved for grossness.  This is a pretty creative venture but I am not sure I would want my kids to drink smoothies that include cheese and spaghetti, or what looked like chicklettes.  Fun though!

This refreshing fruity drink is a take off on the frappiccino family of sweet frozen fruit drinks that my granddaughters love so much.  It is also a bit of a copy cat of a famous pineapple whip from one of the world's favourite amusement parks.

Here are the ingredients for making 4 servings of this delicious, cooling drink:

  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 2 pineapples, peeled and cored (you can use the core too, if you have a Vitamix or Blendex)
  • 1 organic lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk 


  • Add all the above to the cannister of your Vitamix or Blendex blenders... other blenders may need to do this in a couple of batches.  
  • Place on the lid securely
  • Pulse or blend until a smooth, frozen consistency
  • Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!

Spicy, Tangy, Cancer-Fighting Green Breakfast Smoothie

Follow Me on Pinterest


Tastier than you might think!!
This particular green smoothie is inspired by the green drink that Chris Wark (of "Chris Beat Cancer" and the SquareOne Healing Cancer Summit - you can sign up to be notified of the next free series) described in Module 4 as part of his morning protocol during the time when he was actively involved in knocking Stage 3 Colon cancer out of his body without chemo and without radiation.  The 10-part video series is so interesting (and important)--and you can watch it when it comes up again: FREE.  If you miss the opportunity, you can still get hold of the materials with all his information, and be part of a support group.  Some people who watch this summit purchase the materials and watch/read repeatedly until they are able to replicate the system that works for so many to combat cancer naturally-- to get through other chronic disease also (eg., Diabetes 2 and Heart Disease).  Go HERE to learn more about owning the complete coaching program.


INGREDIENTS (all of which Chris recommends): Makes about 24+ oz.

2 C. Filtered or Distilled Water (The no-power-needed Distiller Chris recommends)
Organic Arugula and Baby Spinach combo from Costco - 2 handfuls
2 Organic Apples, Chopped (not peeled, but cored-- Chris leaves in the seeds, I didn't)
2 T. Organic Flaxseed (you could choose to use flax meal instead, or Chia seed)
1 Organic Celery Stem, chopped
Small Handful, Organic Broccoli Sprouts (Health Store, or sprout your own)
Small Grated Knuckle of Turmeric (or 2 tsp. Powdered Turmeric)
Small Grated Knuckle of  Organic Ginger
Shot of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (or Lemon Juice-- you decide how much a shot is)
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
Blend up and drink (store in mason jar with lid on in fridge for a couple of days)


Use fresh, organic, whole food ingredients to fight cancer.  You deserve the best!  If you can't get hold of organic, just wash the other ingredients as well as possible (using apple cider vinegar can help) and eat more.  Don't give up on fresh whole foods-- they are always going to be a better bet than processed, isolates... 

I was a little timid about how this smoothie might taste with so many "strong" elements-- but it is absolutely delicious.  If you have an aversion to (or are unfamiliar with, or timid about) some of the ingredients, skip them or use a small quantity.  Every one of them has nutritive values that have been shown to KILL cancer cells and/or BUILD the immune system.
