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!
