Easy Smoothie

A balanced meal on it’s own, this smoothie is the perfect way to get much needed nutrients and calories into kids, athletes, and picky eaters. Packed with protein, healthy fats and hidden greens, it makes a nice meal replacement. I used pineapple for the smoothie pictured below which is why it’s so pale in color. Pineapple is a good choice for kids and picky eaters b/c its sweet, not seedy (like berries), and naturally contains enzymes which add digestion. However, if you are looking for the most nutritional value, I’d recommend frozen mixed berries.

Silken tofu, flax oil, and coconut milk make this vegan smoothie a perfect meal replacement.
