Here is a great healthy recipe that is super easy to make. These Tropical Smoothies are full of energy and are great for kids. We're big on making smoothies in our house. Frankly, I don't know many kids that object to tossing foods in a blender and then getting to press the "on" button to pulverize them. As I've said time and again, if you want to get your kids to eat food that's good for them, get them involved in the preparation process. Making smoothies is one of the most perfect, fun and simple opportunities to do just that. So, power up the blender, grab your little one and have a great time preparing a uniquely delicious and nutritious treat for the whole family.
