The most popular New Year’s resolutions revolve around becoming more healthy. After the Holidays I can admit that I am more than ready to put down the calories and eat healthy and refreshing foods for awhile. At least a few days. However, it’s a little harder to talk the Big Boss and the kiddo’s into trading fudge for celery!
I’m always on the lookout for refreshing and fun ways to incorporate veggies into our diets. My middle child practically refuses to eat veggies. This is one way that I can sneak carrots in without a single word of complaining. In fact, they practically arm wrestle each other over the last tablespoon of smoothie in the blender. It’s a big deal you know!
It’s easy too! Add some carrots to your blender.
And some canned peaches and ice. Did I mention this recipe also helps with organization/cleaning resolutions? Well, it does because it helps rotate through the almost expired canned peaches.
Add chunks of pineapple, lemon juice and honey.
Blend until smooth! There you have it. Sit back and enjoy watching your kids drink down those carrots.
Here’s to keeping the New Years resolution!
Not only do I love tricking my kids into
eating drinking healthy food and rotating my food storage, I also love how easy this is to throw together. I like to serve it for breakfast with a muffin or breakfast cookie!
