As a Mom of two active boys, I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes to get nutrition in their diets. It’s especially important in the morning to get them out the door with a Delicious Breakfast that will fuel their little bodies until lunch time.
Finding Healthy Smoothie Recipes that don’t have strawberries and a few of the fruits that my son dislikes isn’t always the easiest. He certainly loves peanut butter and chocolate so this recipe was a win!
This Protein Smoothie For Kids is exactly what they need to get their morning starting off on the right!
