Smoothies for Good Health

My husband's teenage sisters are going through a smoothie phase; they are obsessed with blending everything and anything at all times. They've been concocting many smoothies recently. I suggested they try to balance the sugar levels (by avoiding too much sucrose) and pack the drinks with superfoods and antioxidants from fresh fruits and veggies. Extra nutrients such as flax or chia seeds are a plus. 

I've gathered a long list of kid-friendly smoothies for the girls and you to see. Please keep in mind, especially at a young age, the purpose of the drink is to feel good, improve your helth (without necessarily having the focus of weight loss), get a glowing skin and of course, enjoy a delicious treat!

Delicious Drinks to Enjoy This Fall Recipe
