Rise & Shine Smoothie

Not only is this smoothie fresh and fruity, it aids in digestion through Papaya and Kefir.  Papayas contain an enzyme called papain that aids in digestion and they are also rich in Beta-carotene and Vitamin C.  This smoothie also contains “good fats” and other beneficial vitamins and minerals from the Avocado.

Kefir is a fermented milk product that contains loads of friendly bacteria.  Look for organic Kefir in the dairy section of the grocery store.

Ingredients: (Makes 1 large smoothie or 2 small)

1/2 Avocado

1 cup Chopped Papaya

3/4 cup Almond Milk (or milk alternative)

1 Tbsp Kefir

3 Ice Cubes

1 Big Splash of orange juice

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.

When serving to kids I always like to use a cute glass (or these awesome jars) with a fancy paper straw.  Don’t forget, how it looks is just as important as how it tastes when it comes to your little kiddos  😉
