Smoothies

The blend of fruits and veggies, nut, seeds and spices, mixed in with non-dairy milks, coconut water or water produce one of the most satisfying, nutritionally dense drinks to offer your family.  You and your family's personal smoothie choices will be different so do try out a variety of blends.  

One of the best attributes a smoothie has is being able to add in a concoction of otherwise unused mixtures that your children wouldn't normally try.  The added advantages of smoothies are, they are fantastically quick to make, they can pack a high-protein, fibre and calories  punch, and are the ideal go-to snack between meals.
