Superpowers Come in all Shapes and Glasses

Written by Chef Christy, publisher of

Choosing healthy snacks can be a challenge when it is so much easier to pick up something in the pantry that requires no fuss. I am always looking for ways to incorporate more super foods or ingredients that are rich in Omega-3 into our diet for that extra boost of focus at work or school. Smoothies are like soup, it is the one stop glass for all sorts of hidden nutritious goodness. I tell my boys that smoothies are a superfood that you can drink and that they give you super focus powers. The key is making it look appealing to kids so that not only would they want it for breakfast, but also they crave it for a snack before they do their homework. This particular smoothie is bright in color and packed with flavor so that even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy it. When I was a young girl, I used to make smoothie yogurt bowls and decorate it with fruits to make adorable animal faces. There is nothing that says you have to drink a smoothie out of a glass. Have fun and inspire creativity with your kids. Get them involved in the kitchen and watch their little eyes light up as they watch their superpowers blend together for a delicious treat.

Tips to make your smoothie have even more superpowers…

  • Protein powder– For a healthy breakfast option, add 1 scoop of protein powder adding 20 grams to 30 grams extra to this smoothie.
  • Nut butter– Adding nut butter is a great idea for healthy fats. Which will make this smoothie Paleo & whole 30 approved.
  • Nuts– Cashew, almond, pistachio are a good addition to it if you like a crunch.
  • Sweetener– If you want to make a smoothie sweet without adding a banana then add a few teaspoons of honey or maple syrup or agave syrup.
  • Yogurt– You can add 1 cup of greek yogurt and 1 cup of almond milk to make it thick and get a few extra grams of protein.
  • Spinach– To make it fiber-rich add 1 cup of spinach. Warning: Kids might be turned off by the brown color it creates.
  • Seeds– Chia seeds, hemp seeds, & flax seeds are rich in omega-3, and other micronutrients.
  • Keto– Add ½ avocado to make it keto-friendly.
