Summer is here, which means the are kids home and somehow always in the kitchen looking for food!  This is the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen and whip up some healthy smoothie bowls. Smoothie bowls are filling, jam-packed with your favorite flavors, and make eating healthy something you and your kids will definitely want to do! Make them for breakfast or a nutritious mid-day snack.

  • 2/3 CUP ALMOND MILK
