Smoothies for kids

I was a Good Mum this afternoon. We all went BACK to Asda, and bought strawberries, melon, apple juice and straws, so we could make a smoothie according to the Kenwood recipe book. We chopped and whizzed and poured, and finally we all tasted the results. Two of us liked it. Another liked it - well, so-so - and did eventually polish it off. Viola-kid didn't like the melon in it! After all that!

You know what I'm going to try next? A can of pineapple, perhaps with some orange-juice added. It might not be so vibrantly full of goodness as a fresh fruit smoothie, but it'll be cheap, tasty and still count as a portion of fruit. Watch this space ...
