Carrot and Sweet Potato Smoothie?

Have you read the The Sneaky Chef by Missy Chase Lapine? Wow! I love this book. We have one picky eater in our house. Of course, I'm grateful that he love broccoli, but that's the only veggie he'll eat. Well, today, thanks to the Sneaky Chef, he had carrots and sweet potatoes in his strawberry smoothie, and he LOVED IT! They are having cauliflower and zucchini in their broccoli and cheese soup tonight, too. Besides all of her clever ideas for sneaking healthy food into our kids "kid food", I love her ideas about how to get your kids to actually like the foods that you are sneaking into their foods. Click the link above to order a copy of this amazing book for yourself.

Here's what went into our smoothie:

1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 banana
2 capsules of fish oil supplement (without the capsule - poke a hole in it and squeeze the oil out)
1/4 cup sweet potato/ carrot puree
handful of frozen blueberries
