One way to sneak extra nutrition into smoothies is to use a superfoods powder. You can add a lot of goodness with just a little powder, but we still love to add fresh veggies too.

One of our favorite varieties of smoothies to make are tropical smoothies. I know a lot of moms struggle to get their kids to eat enough vegetables, and this is one that you can absolutely sneak a vegetable into.

I find that carrots work very well in tropical smoothies because they are slightly sweet and the color matches that of pineapple and orange juice. Your kids will never know!

In fact, if they’re anything like my girls, they’ll be asking for seconds! This recipe makes two normal or four small smoothies in just a few minutes, so feel free to double, triple, quadruple or multiply the recipe to your serving size needs!
