Healthy Valentine’s Day Snacks
I love this little healthy Valentine’s Day snack. Simply cut the stem out of the strawberries by cutting a “V” in the top of the strawberry, then slice the strawberry down the center and you have two adorable heart-shaped strawberries for your child to nibble on!
Another idea is this healthy smoothie from Fit Sugar secretly packed with healthy spinach:
Handful of fresh spinach
1 cup vanilla lowfat yogurt
1/2 cup cranberry juice
3 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
10 blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
A few cubes of ice
Pour the cranberry juice and yogurt into the blender. Add the spinach and pulse until it has blended into small pieces. Add the strawberries, blueberries, and bananas to the mix. When everything is whipped into a smoothie texture, add a few chunks of ice and blend on high.
* Add flax to the mix for added nutritional value
