Hot weather is coming and I often worry about my son getting enough liquid to stay hydrated. He's the kind of kid that will go go go and not clue into the subtle messages his body is sending him that he may need some water. As hard as I've tried as a parent, he doesn't get very excited about water and doesn't crave it like I do. I'm not a huge sports drink fan, but we do keep a few on hand. I've been blending them with fruit so he at least gets a little nutrition and fiber. They're refreshing and only use 1 cup of the drink. He loves them!
Using frozen fruits helps give the smoothie that frozen texture. If you're using fresh fruits, add 1 cup of ice before blending.
Try other frozen fruits or throw in a handful of spinach before blending.
I used a small single serving blender, but you could use a larger one to make more than one serving.
Place frozen fruits and sports drink into your blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
