I’m a huge fan of breakfasts that taste like dessert. Who isn’t?! Anything from decadent oatmeal to scones to chocolate pancakes is a great treat in the morning to get our day started on a good note. I know that when I serve up something sweet (but still nutritious), the whole family will love it.

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Shake is a new addition to our sweet breakfast line-up, but it’s already a favorite! I’m a huge fan of smoothies since they’re quick to make and easy to take with us on-the-go. You could double or triple this recipe to feed the whole family one morning!

The combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and banana is heavenly here, and oatmeal adds extra nutrition. Your kids will never know they’re slurping down something that’s actually good for them!

Enjoy a festive Shamrock Green Smoothie this St. Patrick's Day! Packed with nutritious fruits and veggies, this is a healthy smoothie that your kids will love drinking.

There are two big reasons I love St. Patrick’s Day: 1. we get to spend time together as a family doing fun activities and participating in the festivities of the day; and 2. the green theme gives me an excuse to sneak even more healthy fruits and vegetables in my kids’ food! I’d say that’s a pretty great holiday.

No artificial food dyes here to give this smoothie its festive color – just spinach! I promise your kids won’t be able to taste it. Just tell them that leprechauns drink their green smoothies too and I’m sure they’ll gulp it down. :)

There are so many good ingredients in this smoothie that it makes a perfect balanced breakfast (for any day of the year!) or a filling afternoon snack. Bananas and apples give it a delicious fruity flavor, spinach packs nutrition, and yogurt gives it creaminess and protein. Smoothies are the best, aren’t they?

We love making green smoothies for kids that they will love and ask for again and again. I hope you love this recipe!
