My Boys love our shake in the morning with assorted berries, banana, and Cinch vanilla protein (kids never get to much protein), and milk. We switch out and then have Cinch Chocolate protein with strawberries which is very yummy also. I have a lot more recipes but those are there favorites and easiest.

1 ripe banana (can be from frozen)
1/4 of block of silken tofu.
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1 1/4 - 2 cup frozen berries (we use blueberries, raspberries and loganberries, but any variety will work according your taste buds)
1 1/4 cup orange juice - with calcium
2 tbsp honey or agave nectar (optional)

blend together and serve. real easy to make the night before and have ready to go in individual cups for the next morning. or freeze in dixie cups with an ice cream stick for a treat in place of ice cream.

I do a fruit shake almost every morning for myself and my three kids. I do frozen fruit (any kind should work, but I get a blend from a nearby Costco), water to cover most of the fruit (or all of it if you like more runny shakes), squeeze in lemon juice from half of a fresh lemon and just a splash of juice to round out the flavor of the drink. Blend it until smooth; add more or less water depending on your preference. Yum!

Our son has a fruit smoothie every day. We do 1 banana, frozen peaches and strawberries, 1 cup of organic vanilla yogurt and whole milk and our son loves them! Sometimes I use a little apple juice as well but mainly stick to the whole milk since it's healthier. You can use whatever fruits you would like. I like to use some fresh and some frozen so that it's nice and cold and I don’t need to add ice to make them cold which I think just waters them down. They are so yummy and healthy! Enjoy!

We make GG's at our house i.e. Green Goodness. We start out with grape juice in a blender (which is naturally sweet) a banana for smoothness, spinach, kale, carrots and anything else you'd like to add :) its a great way to get extra veggies and fruit in the diet! This drink ends up tasting sweet while still providing vitamins and nutrients the body needs.
