Lately we have been "smoothie crazy" in our house. It's a delicious way to get lots of raw fruits and veggies into my kids. If I make too much one day...I'll freeze some in popsicle molds for a quick frozen treat at a later time. I do have one really good "kid friendly" recipe book...but here's a link to some other recipes

http://www.smoothierecipies.net/free-sm ... ecipes.htm

Basically choose a base (milk, soy milk, water, orange juice) and add to it fresh fruit or veggies like cucumber, some veggies like carrot, spinach etc. that has been through a juicer, frozen fruit (makes the smoothie thicker and colder than fresh). For added nutrition you can include hemp or sunflower seeds, yogurt or soy yogurt, healthy oils (like hemp and flax) blend and voila it's a meal.

I plan on buying lots of in season (organic) fruit this year and freezing it. To freeze, cut into ready to use pieces and freeze on a cookie sheet...then transfer to bags (this prevents a frozen lump of fruit) I learned this lesson AFTER prying fruit off the big fruit lump with a butter knife :oops: .

One of our favorite recipes is:

250ml soy milk
1 frozen banana
pinch of cinnamon
blend. serve in a fancy clear glass.
garnish with more cinnamon

smoothies are sooo yummy, i do mine in a magic bullet, best kitchen gaget EVER cause it comes with mugs and you can do all different drinks in the four mugs!

one of my allergy friendly faves is;

equal parts soy milk* and orange juice
a handful frozen mixed berries
4-5 ice cubs

blend, and drink.
*can be substituded for other non dairy based milk substitues if it won't curddle in the OJ

So dustytiger, soy milk and orange juice mix tigether without curdling!?! Your recipe looks to me like a creamsicle with berries...YUM!

Today we had

150ml soy milk
150ml peach soy yogurt
1 snack size cup of drained peaches (I will use fresh once available)

It was awesome!

I also have the book "juices and smoothies for kids" by Amanda Cross, currently available at Coles. It is a very kid friendly, colorful book, with lots of bright colored pictures of smoothies with cool kid friendly names (like "cheeky monkey" and "hug in a glass" and "purple monster") and pictures of kids drinking them.

it doesn't seem to if i did it would proably upset my stomach cause i've got a pretty sensative one, the soymilk is nice cause takes away from the tartness of the all oj and the berry mix i like it as a quick breakfast
