Got tired mom skin from no sleep, ever, and no time for your 10 step beauty regime? This smoothie is full of gorgeous antioxidants that will work hard for you! Add a handful of SUPERFRUIT goji berries to your smoothie. It's high in zinc which aids in healthy skin. While your little one may not crave the skin boosting effects, it's also full of everything else, so share the goodness. Beets aid with liver detox, strawberries, as well as goji berries, are wonderful sources of vitamin C, and coconut water will keep your body hydrated. Have a good day.

1 cup almond milk

½ cup frozen strawberries

½ cup frozen cherries

1 small red beet, peeled roasted or steamed

2 tablespoon goji berries

¼ inch ginger root, peeled

Juice of 1 lemon

DIRECTIONS

Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth.  Serve your little one's smoothie in their favorite colored Original squeeze, while you enjoy yours in your adult Sport Squeeze or as a smoothie bowl with left over toppings.

 

Our Best Tips:

  • Choose Organic and Non-GMO whenever possible 
  • Fresh is best, frozen next 
  • Substitutions may always be made. If we say Whole Milk, go ahead and use Vanilla Flax Milk, Unsweetened Almond etc. if that's what you prefer. Our recipes are designed for flexibility.
  • Use the ounce markers on the side of your Original Squeeze® pouch to loosely-measure your ingredients when preparing our recipes. Eyeball it, that's good enough! 
  • We recommend flavor/ingredient add-ins that not only expand your child's growing palette, but increase their vitamin and mineral array. Some of our favorite add-ins include: 
    • citrus zest (lemon, orange, lime) 
    • pinch of warm spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice (with a very light hand, too much of these and the recipe will be overwhelming to your little one)
  • Always test your finished recipe for quality control before you serve it to your children, especially babies.
