Rainbow Smoothie Recipe- Fun & Fruity!

Whether your kids love to eat healthy with a variety of  fruits and vegetables or not they will slurp up this yummy rainbow smoothie. Not only is it fun for the eyes, but every layer is fruity and delicious!  Get the kids in on the fun from the start, take them to the grocery store or farmers market to help pick out fruits.  Encourage them to choose at least one new item for one of the  color layers- mango, cherries, kiwi, honeydew, cantaloupe etc… Blender safety- remind them to always put the lid on before mixing, and never put their little hands inside blender.
