Need a way to get vegetables down your kids? Make them a Blueberry Flax Shake. I’ve been making it every morning for a healthy way to jumpstart my day, and my kids beg for their own cup (straw included). My sister Marleen made up this recipe, and it’s so good and healthy and filling. And I promise–your kids won’t know that there are vegetables mixed in. Below is the recipe.

4 inches of cucumber, cut in chunks
half of one avocado

2 tablespoons of honey (or agave syrup)
1 tablespoon of grounded flax seed
Blend all ingredients together until desired consistency.
