'Everything is Awesome' Smoothies : Kid's in the Kitchen

Smoothies are a very regular thing at our house.  We have them a few times a week after dinner or for a snack on the weekends.  The kids love to make them and to eat them.  They are super simple, delicious, and contain a lot of nutritious ingredients.  It is for those reasons that I add this recipe to Kid's In the Kitchen that I found over at Chaos & Kiddos and From ABCs to ATCs.  Hop on over and enjoy some kid-friendly recipes.
'Everything is Awesome' Smoothies

I start out with 1/4 - 1/3 of a bag of frozen fruit, maybe 2/3 container of greek yogurt (we use vanilla for extra sweetness sometimes), and about 1 1/2 cups of whatever juice we have on hand.  This time was our favorite organic, not-from concentrate apple juice.

Next, everything goes into the Ninja.

I also add in a teaspoon of flax seed, but the kiddos seem to notice it in the finished product whenever they see it go in.

Then we blend it all together.

After a minute or two, we have this! 

Then we use our Lego Movie cups and enjoy.  We usually end up singing "Every thing is Awesome!" while making and enjoying these treats and because we the Lego Movie cups are the perfect vessel for this awesomeness, they became our 'Everything is Awesome' smoothies.
