Nutritious Smoothies for Your Kids
Sharanya says she is a crystal goddess and a tree hugger who specializes in Indian vegan foods and holistic healing for allergies. She posted this picture and recipe on Instagram as @eathealthy_fit_mom.
She wants to encourage her kids to eat nutritious foods. The blueberries make it look sugary, but instead of refined sugar, it is loaded with powerful antioxidants, including several servings of nutrient dense green superfoods like Pines Wheat Grass.
Here is Sharanya's recipe:
- Wheatgrass powder from @wheatgrass_people
- frozen banana
- blackstrap molasses
- soy milk
- @lovemysilk peach yogurt
- vitamin D drops.
Sharanya is wise to choose individual ingredients rather than blends that contain a "kitchen sink" mixture of vegetables and fruits. Often ingredients in these blends are selected based on price, not quality. Poor quality ingredients can be disguised with darkly colored ingredients like chocolate.
Poor quality wheatgrass and other greens often originate from China or from dehydrators in the United States that are used most of the year for pesticide-based alfalfa for confined animals being fattened for the industrialized meat industry.
Pines is 100% organic. We do not produce feed for the meat industry. All Pines products are packaged in amber glass bottles with special metal caps that allow us to remove the oxygen from each bottle.
This safeguard protects our high quality greens from oxidation until you open the bottle. The tight fitting metal caps help keep the product fresh between uses.
Plastic tubs and paper packets are inappropriate packaging that cause rapid oxidation, making the contents a very poor value.
