Strawberry, Banana and Apple Smoothie

I won’t lie… my kids, especially my 5 year old daughter, do not like fruits.  Yes, I know what you are thinking “you are food blogger, and you can’t get your own kids to eat their fruits?!”… ehm… sort of.  But I am working on it and smoothies are a great way to get my fussy little ones to have their daily intake of fruits (and veggies too sometimes!), so I am making more of these lately.  I make them with whatever I have handy and they always turn out pretty yummy.  This specific one was really successful and I was asked to make it again… so I wrote down the recipe (I would not want to forget how to make a winner!) and thought of sharing it with you all.  I promise it is great even for adults: delicious and healthy, especially since it uses maple syrup instead of sugar (you could potentially skip this if your fruits are very sweet)! :-)  Enjoy!

    Smoothies are a great way to get kids to eat fruit. The other way is to freeze the fruit, especially bananas and other starchy fruits, and then process them into ice cream. My son didn’t know for years that I was feeding him nothing but a banana when I gave him ice cream. LOL.

    The good thing is the kids will outgrow all that. Sometimes a texture or a flavor is too intense and as they grow they’ll change. The best thing to do is ask them to take just one bite. I never forced my kids but I did ask that they taste. Over time it grows on them.

    I love your smoothie though!
