Kid-Friendly Kale-Chia Smoothie (Recipe)

Kid-Friendly Kale-Chia Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but it can be tough to get my daughter to eat her greens. Smoothies are just about the only way we can get veggies in her, so my husband or I make one for her nearly every day.

This kid-friendly option contains orange, strawberry, kale and chia seeds and has no added sweeteners. Even the pickiest kid (or adult) will enjoy this delicious cold treat that packs vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, Omega-3s, and other vitamins and minerals.

If you don’t have all of the ingredients, you can substitute almost anything: an apple for the orange, spinach for the kale, any frozen fruit for the strawberries. I usually add oats to make this more of a breakfast smoothie and to get some additional calories into my skinny kid. Enjoy!
