Kids Make Smoothies-- 60+ Video Recipes for Kid-Friendly Smoothies

 A friend and I were talking today about her grandson and how useful it would be to have some great child-friendly smoothies for him to sample on his new gluten-free lifestyle.  Smoothies are generally great that way-- gluten is not often introduced, or not into any of the green smoothies or the really healthy fruit smoothies.  There might be gluten in some of the commercially-packaged smoothies so I would check the ingredients on the package... there might also be gluten in some of the smoothies you buy from mall vendors and grocery stores (not to mention processed sugars and possible "excito-toxins") that you can avoid when you make your own smoothies with fresh, organic fruits and greens.

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.
