My good friend Deborah is back at it with another cookbook. Her new book Best 100 Smoothies for Kids just hit the shelves and it’s a must-have, especially if you’ve got kiddos.
Her book includes 100 smoothie recipes that kids will love, all free of added sugars and packed with fruits, vegetables and flavor! Knowing Deb has three little kids of her own I knew I could trust these to be kid approved.
This Avocado Pear Smoothie is an ideal smoothie for lunch for kids. I’ve got picky eaters and they won’t go near an avocado, so I was excited to sneak it in their lunch with this smoothie.
My five year old is obsessed with pears so he gulped his smoothie down in minutes and wanted more! With summer upon us, I’m smoothies for breakfast and lunch are a great idea.
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup frozen pear chunks
- Half a small, ripe avocado
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pour the milk into a blender and add the pears.
- Peel and seed the avocado and add to the blender.
