If you’re looking for a snack that tastes delicious AND is good for you, then you’re in for a treat!
These smoothie recipes, come to Snack Girl courtesy of Ziporah Janowski of Shane Weight Loss Camps & Resorts (Weight Loss Camp and Weight Loss Resorts).
She was kind enough to share them with me and what I love about them is their simplicity. Most of these ingredients should be stocked in your house right now.
They are a great source of fruits, vitamin C, and fiber and make a great pick-me-up snack.
Camp Shane developed these smoothies in partnership with renowned child obesity expert and Board Certified Pediatrician Dr. Joanna Dolgoff. Whether you’re an adult or a kid, these are sure to please even the pickiest eaters.
All three smoothie recipes are less than 175 calories per serving and help kids and adults achieve the recommended 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
