I put together a Youtube video channel with 60+ child-friendly smoothie recipes. Most of the videos feature kids either as actual "chefs" making the smoothie, or as active participants (drinking) in the smoothie-making process. There are a whole range of smoothies here-- everything from the purest of 3-ingredient Green Smoothies (with Sergei Boutenko, whose mother, Victoria, is credited with the Green Smoothie explosion) and super-food additions to fresh fruit smoothies to less healthy versions of smoothies that contain commercial smoothie products, dairy milk, cocoa, sweet canned fruit juices, and even ice cream!
I think it might be useful to watch the vids with your kids-- they will certainly relate to the smoothie-making kid "chefs" (all ages from infancy through into their teens, girls AND boys)-- but parents might want to review the vids first and choose the ones they want their children to try (to exclude dubious ingredients such as cocoa and ice cream, for example). You might want to encourage your own kids to try their hand at experimenting with making smoothies (with your close supervision, of course), and you might also want to make a video of their efforts (please contact me and I will include the video on my channel so that they have instant fame!). I appreciate hearing any positive comments your kids might have... either on the video channel, or here.
Go HERE to Everything Smoothies for Kids to see the 60+ (and growing) videos and start making your own child-healthy smoothies on a regular basis!
