Orange Sunrise Smoothie
We are thrilled to have found our guest today. Her recipes are kid-friendly, easy and yummy.  Welcome Lindsay!
I am excited to be guest posting on A Nation of Moms. My name is Lindsay, and my husband and I have a food blog that we do together called “Our Family Treat.” Brooks and I love cooking together which is why we started our blog. We want families to see how important it is to eat together as a family, at home. Some of our best moments as a family are cooking in the kitchen! We hope you are excited to make those memories too! So head on over to Our Family Treat to get more of our recipes!
Smoothie recipes perfect for our family because I have the cutest little 4 year old. We have to go to “food therapy” with him at Primary Children’s because of the fact that he eats very little…and is one of the pickiest eaters you will ever meet. We found out that part of his problem is touch and texture. Our therapist said that are first step to solving his problem is to have him help us make food. So with smoothies, he has to help put the fruit in the smoothie. It took him a few times before he was actually ok touching the fruit…but after a few weeks, he actually tasted a bite of a strawberry and a bite of an apple for the first time. It was such an accomplishment in our home, I wanted to cry! If you are interested in hearing more, feel free to email me! But in the mean time, enjoy this recipe!

10 ounces orange juice
2 scoops non-fat frozen yogurt
