Smoothies are sometimes seen as healthy milkshakes, yet are often made with some questionable ingredients (e.g., powered proteins). Why not go au naturel? As the days become colder try replacing some of the tropical fruits with seasonal items. Finally, don’t rely on too much ice for a textured smoothie; ice slows down agni (the digestive energy or fire in Ayurvedic Medicine). Yes, as the titles elude, these smoothies are kid tested and friendly!
