Smoothie Freezer Packets for Kids

EAT, snacks By January 1, 2014 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I like to save time. Doesn’t every Mom? With a focus on healthy this year, I started making smoothie freezer packets for kids. Perhaps it’s also because I bought a Vitamix and am determined to have my family eat whole, healthy foods. You can reuse the ziplock bags and keep a stash of smoothie mixes in the freezer. Keep coconut water or almond milk on hand and add 1/2 cup to your smoothie packet. Hint: Using dark berries allows you to camouflage kale or spinach without the kids thinking there is anything green in their smoothie.
