What We Love About Smoothies

  • They pull double duty: quenching thirst and satisfying hunger at the same time.
  • They taste as bright and pretty as they look.
  • They’re a great way to sneak more fiber and antioxidants into your kids. (But all they’ll care about is the taste.)
  • They don’t require a lot of fussy ingredients.
  • They give new life to overripe fruit.
  • They can be easily tailored to suit individual needs. And even kids with dairy allergies can enjoy them.
  • They’re a great DIY snack for older kids; younger operators will require adult supervision.
