Strawberry Juice & Calories in Fruit Review
Explore the perfect smoothie recipes for kids
One of the easiest and quickest things you can try on your new juicer, is making strawberry juice. We normally associate strawberries only with smoothies, because of all that delicious pulp and the crunchy seeds. But strawberry juice- straight up strawberry juice- is totally delicious too. And you can use the strawberry juice you made and turn it into a yummy strawberry smoothie for the kids! Smoothie recipes for kids need just the basic kitchen ingredients, and strawberry smoothies are no different. All you need is:
-one cup of strawberries, halved and hulled
– half a glass of skim milk
– half a glass of yogurt
– 2 tablespoons sugar
– a quarter cup crushed ice (you can skip the ice if you’re using frozen strawberries or cold strawberry juice)
– a quarter spoon vanilla extract
All you need to do is toss them all into a blender and let it blend till the mixture is smooth and creamy. If you want to make it extra appealing to your kids or guests, you can garnish with a few strawberries on top. You can even mix it up on this recipe by adding a few blueberries or half a banana per serving while blending, to make amazing combination smoothies.
The best part is that you can modify these easy smoothie recipes for kids, to make some light and healthy smoothies for yourself too. For example, substitute the skin milk for 2% milk, skip the sugar, and you’ve got yourself a delicious, low calorie smoothie. And it’s not just about the calories in smoothies. You can substitute the milk and yogurt for almond milk if you’re lactose intolerant, and voila! Still have a delicious smoothie.
