Super healthy after school snack

Madly in love with the combination of  flavors of this smoothie, it is creamy, filling and so fresh. I like to use it as breakfast or have it in the fridge for the healthiest after school snack ever.

Every time my kids get back from school they are soooo “hangry” HUNGRY+ ANGRY. And I know this term really does not exist, but wooooww, the meaning is sooo real.  Super healthy after school snack

I like to have smoothies in the fridge especially for the days that we run a lot and have to give the kids a quick healthy snack. Smoothies are so great to add extra fruits and veggies  and even greens to our diets. Everything tastes delicious once blended!

A cool trick I learn years back is that kids will drink almost anything in colorful sippy cups or cups with caps and cool straws. So, if you have a picky eater, most likely, this will do the trick.
