Sneaky Shakes for Picky kids

Look, my kids are in a seriously picky phase right now. One day carrots are the bomb dot com (yes, I just wrote that) and the next day Cordelia pukes them up. Girl can puke on demand; it would be pretty impressive if it were not so very disgusting. Anyway, I am always working to find new and sneaky ways to cram their sweet little faces with healthy food.

Each ingredient in this recipe has loads of healthy benefits.
Banana is an amazing source of potassium. Pineapple is a great source of vitamin C. Spinach well, just read this link to see how great it is for you. Blueberry and strawberry are full of antioxidants!Wheat Germ is a great source of fiber and it will keep you regular (wink, wink), not that that's a major issue for vegans (wink, wink). Almonds and almond milk are vitamin rich too!
