The humble smoothie. These are a staple here in our home, and it’s always fun to introduce the kids to new flavors and super foods via smoothies. I will often make the kids super thick smoothies and call it ice cream. Sometimes we even serve said smoothies in ice cream cones. I share all of that simply to say: have fun with your smoothies. This tasty recipe is one that I made the kids for breakfast. When smoothies are served in the morning, I try to make sure they have greens and/or super foods included. When they’re served in the afternoon I lean towards fruity smoothies, or drinks that include cacao.

It’s simple. Add everything but the ice to your Vitamix or blender, and blend. Once smooth, add the ice and blend again. Serve and enjoy!
