Smoothies are a great way to get nutrients into your body. They are delicious too. Even kids love them! In fact, smoothies are a great way to sneak in extra protein, vitamins and minerals into your kids. Here are some tried and true, tasty smoothie recipes to have fun with . Children love to help make them too!

Nutritional supplements can be added to any smoothie as needed. Good ones are:

2 tbsp. whey protein powder. Growing children needs lots of protein. Many attention deficit disorders can be greatly helped with added protein. Amino acids are necessary for healthy brain development. Adults rarely get enough protein. Protein helps curb hunger longer and aids in weight-loss. It is like a natural appetite suppressant.

2 tbsp. brewer’s yeast. Brewer’s yeast is a natural food source of Vitamin B complex. It also is high in protein and loaded with other important minerals and vitamins. Cellular development is enhanced by the high nucleic acid count found in brewer’s yeast. I wouldn’t add it in addition to protein powder. Do one or the other. Brewer’s yeast helps to reduce stress, lower cholesterol, and enhance metabolism and energy.

2 tsp. flax seeds. Flax seed is high in fiber and fun to chew on. Flax seed are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, lignans and phytoestrogens which lower triglycerides and blood pressure. Omega 3′s are great for you skin, brain, heart…just about everything.

flax oil. Some people don’t care for the taste of flax seed, so flax seed oil is a good option. The oil contains less fiber than the seeds, but the benefits are still there.

lecithin. Add 2 tsp. to your smoothie to help promote weightloss. Lecithin is an emulsifier. Ithelps the liver breakdown and disperse fat in the body. It’s also said to be beneficial for the reproductive system in both men and women and also good for the gallbladder.

aloe vera juice. Aloe vera is a very healing plant rich in calcium, iron, potassium, chromium, manganese, copper and zinc. It’s great for the skin, the digestive track and the immune system. Pour 2 ounces into your smoothie for added benefits.

The basics of almost any smoothie is yogurt, ice, a fruit and a liquid. If you desire a more low-fat smoothie recipe, you can use low-fat or nonfat yogurt. Then build from there, adding your favorite fruit and the nutritional supplements you desire. Here are some yummy recipes:

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 frozen strawberries
1 teaspoon honey
2 tbsp vanilla whey protein powder

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup chocolate almond milk
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 frozen banana
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoon chocolate whey protein powder (or vanilla)

Creamy Orange Smoothie Recipe
½ cup vanilla yogurt
½ cup orange juice
1 peeled and seeded orange
1 cup ice
2 tablespoons brewer’s yeast

Tips for Great Smoothies

- Add ingredients to blender and pulse until desired thickness. If too thick, add more liquid.

- Crushed ice blends better than ice cubes.

- Buy frozen fruit for any fruit smoothie recipes. Then you don’t need to add ice and it blends better.
