Healthy snack of the week

Cherries, bananas, peaches and kale are a few of the healthful ingredients you can throw right into the blender to create a delicious and nutritious drink.

One of the easiest, tastiest ways to get loads of fruits (and even vegetables!) into your or your kids' diet is in the form of a smoothie. Make it as creative or as simple as you like; try adding different kinds of fruit and experiment with sneaking leafy greens into the mix such as kale, chard or spinach. Here's a great, basic recipe to get you started:

Nutty Fruit Smoothie

1 cup almond milk (or cow's milk)

1 banana

½ cup fresh or frozen fruit, such as peaches or berries

2 stems of kale
