Kid-Friendly Breakfast Smoothie

Sometimes breakfast needs to be portable. This smoothie is portable and full of the nutrition you need to jump-start your day. This smoothie has all you need: low-fat dairy, whole grain oats, veggies, and fresh fruit.



What's great about this smoothie is that it gets in some vegetables first thing in the morning by adding a handful of fresh spinach. Your kids won't even know the difference but will be getting their spinach serving. This smoothie has a full serving of fruits and vegetables that meet the requirements for the national school breakfast program. This program requires half a cup of fruit or vegetables and whole grains.


You can easily add in extra fiber in your smoothie by adding rolled oats and chia seeds into the smoothie. Meal prep this smoothie by adding all your ingredients except your yogurt and milk into a resealable bag before hand. When it's time to blend, just add in your yogurt and milk into a blender along with your bagged ingredients.
