Simple after school smoothies for the kids!

Like most kids, when my son gets home from school he is starving. Though I send him a well-rounded and plentiful lunch, it usually gets half eaten. The biggest hurdle for me and these playdates: Coming up with healthy but satisfying snack solutions that won’t require too much clean up or too much fuss. Smoothies made with milk are a great source of protein. There are 8 grams of protein in every 8 oz glass. With other essential nutrients like Calcium, Potassium, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, Riboflavin, and Niacin, I feel really good about serving smoothies to the boys. Here are some of my favorite after school smoothies ideas:

Peanut butter and banana smoothie :

• 2 Cups Milk

• 3 – 5 tbs All Natural Peanut Butter

• 2 Bananas

• 1 tbs Honey

• 2 tsp Vanilla extract

• 1 cup of ice (for thickness)

Optional toppings: Peanut Butter Chips, Sliced Banana

Berry Banana Pie Smoothie

• 2 cups Milk

• 2 cups Frozen Strawberries

• 1 Banana

• 1 tbs Honey

Optional toppings: Graham Crackers, Whipped Cream, Sliced Strawberries
