What kid doesn’t think a name of smoothie like purple monster isn’t cool?
My little dude loves fruit and smoothies. But even somedays I have to come up with a cool name for it to get him to want to stop playing in the sandbox to come in and eat. The Purple Monster smoothie did the trick.
And if you have a little single serving food processor, it makes these so easy and quick. We make them almost daily and mix in the good stuff to take the nutritional power to the next level.
A couple of strawberries (with or without the greens taken off)
A small handful of blueberries
a splash of almond milk (unsweetened–vanilla or original)
1 scoop NutriVerus Real Food Powder to sneak in more fruits, veggies, and glyconutrients
Hint: It’s great if at least one of the ingredients is from frozen to give it a nice coolness. Or you could just add a bit of crushed ice. And if you don’t have almond milk, you could use a splash of juice instead.
Here’s the smiling results!
