Revive Smoothie – Kid Approved!

Revive Smoothie – Kid Approved!

The change of seasons brought a lot of nasty flus and bugs with it this year!  This smoothie is packed with Vitamin C, and I added greek yoghurt for probiotics since half the house is on antibiotics.  You can omit the yoghurt for a dairy-free version. I was floored that the kids drank and loved this smoothie.  They watched me put loads of “salad” in the blender which had them feeling pretty skeptical, but the orange creamsicle taste makes it irresistible!   MAKE IT HAPPEN: Makes 4 smoothies - 2 kids’ sized and 2 adult. In your blender: 3 frozen bananas 1/2 cup plain greek yoghurt 1/2 head of romaine lettuce, washed 2 whole oranges, seedless and peeled 1/2 cup of frozen mango 3 dates 2 scoops hemp protein 1/2 cup coconut milk 1 cup of water 8 - 10 ice cubes dash of vanilla optional 1/8 cup of shredded coconut (most kids can’t handle the “bits”) Makes a killer morning smoothie for the whole fam AND perfect for pre or post Rev energy!  Amp up the protein in your own smoothie as the perfect post-Rev meal on the go....
