I think one of the best things about smoothies in general is that kids love them because they look and taste so much like milk shakes. In fact smoothie recipes for kids are one of the best strategies for getting the little darlings to eat enough fruit and vegetables without the fuss.
And, some of the best smoothie recipes for kids in all of us recall treats we had years ago and this is a treasured memory. This vanilla and orange smoothie brings that sweet treat up to date in a healthy and delicious way.
Its also easy to turn this smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
