After a 2 hour practice (every. single. night.) my son loves to drink a smoothie. I know, smoothies are nothing new. But to keep in line with the lean, healthy eating I created a better snack for him. Smoothies (as you may already know) are a fantastic way to get a couple servings of fruits (or veggies if you’re adventurous), calcium, protein, and vitamins.
They also have the added benefit of flexibility. Don’t like bananas? Don’t include them. Like peaches — throw them in! Hate blueberries? Never fear, you don’t have to include them!
