Smoothie Project

Stumped about what to add to your morning smoothie to give you tons of energy as well as feeling great inside and outside? Print and laminate this Smoothie Project sheet to get you and your family started!

When Kenya’s health started declining last year I tried just about any and everything to get him back on track: breathing techniques, mental exercises, trips to the doctors office and more. Little did I know that I was the coconspirator to the issues. Even though I still give the kids pancakes, waffles and other delicious foods now and then for breakfast, I learned quickly that every day breakfast foods packed with flour were not helping the kids to feel their best.

Within weeks of starting the Smoothie Project, Kenya was feeling himself again and all it took was a glass full of fruits, vegetables, plant based proteins and more in my favorite blender that tastes as good as it looks.

I created the first version of this sheet on scratch paper and it looked like a 5 year old’s piece of art. I used it as an inspirational “menu” for the kids to take turns picking what they wanted in their smoothies each morning. I still feel that if they have a hand in creating it they will be more excited to drink it.

Two years later, we’re still making smoothies each morning. Using this updated sheet which I laminated and give the kids a dry erase marker to pick the ingredients they want in their daily smoothie. It's the easiest way to get the kids brains working before they head out for a long day of school. This goes as well for myself, my hubby and even Gemma who at 10 months old figured out how to use a straw to get in on the act.

The printable PDF sheet has most of the foods we add to smoothies, but If you have other ideas I would love to hear them in the comments below. You can take this to the grocery or order a bunch of the “extras” and “proteins” online.

I share new smoothies regularly on Instagram stories, and I've compiled a list below for inspiration!
