Shamrock ShakeWith St. Paddy’s day coming up, I figured it was time to share all our favorite GREEN foods with you! A kid-friendly spin on the classic shamrock shake, we use kale + spinach to naturally color our shake green. Our version tastes like a banana milkshake and is naturally sweetened by dates!
Immune Boosting Citrus SmoothieNow that winter is in full swing, I like to boost my family’s immune system with all my tried and true natural remedies. Our smoothie is packed with oranges rich in Vitamin C, carrots loaded with beta-carotene and Vitamin A (which helps your body create more white blood cells to fight off infection), dates rich with phytonutrients that can stimulate the immune system, manuka honey which is anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti- bacterial (optional for our vegan friends), and ginger that produces strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Mint Chocolate Hot CocoaNow that the colder winter months have arrived, it’s time to bundle up with our plant-based hot chocolate! Made with Happy Way Cacao Mint Hemp Protein Powder (#sponsored), this superfood powder adds mint chocolate flavor plus a scoop of fiber, iron, and magnesium. It’s also rich in omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids that help energy production and strengthen the immune system. Gluten-free, vegan friendly, non GMO, and organically grown, it’s also rich in antioxidants from the added chia seeds!
Candy Corn Halloween SmoothieI find smoothies are the easiest way to get my kids to eat their fruits & veggies, so we drink smoothies all year round! We made this Halloween-themed snack with all natural colors (thanks to pineapple, mango, and even pumpkin for some HIDDEN VEGGIES!)
Halloween Frankenstein Monster Smoothie BowlMeet our Frankenstein Monster Smoothie Bowl made with clean ingredients and none of the 𝓼𝓬𝓪𝓻𝔂 artificial stuff. Would you believe that you can get such a rich green color from spinach rather than using the unhealthy chemicals from food dye?? My kids and I both love these 2 smoothies (the green face is a tropical fruit smoothie while the brown is a chocolate blueberry smoothie) because they taste delicious, have hidden veggies, and are perfect for Halloween!
Green SmoothieAn easy way to get my littles to eat green veggies is by mixing them into smoothies. Great for breakfast or snacks, this green smoothie tastes like a banana shake and is naturally sweetened by dates. My son calls it dinosaur juice, and I'm happy to call it whatever he wants as long as I know he's getting his fill of nutrients!
(Healthier) Hot CocoaOur healthier hot chocolate recipe uses plant-based milk, unsweetened cocoa powder, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract as a warm winter treat without all the sugars! Kid-friendly and delicious, Liv & Sawyer always get excited for the colder winter months so I'll make this for them!
