Boy enjoying a smoothieWith the weather getting warmer, it's the perfect season for making smoothies. Kids love them, and when you follow the smoothie recipes below, they can be pretty healthy, too. And while smoothie recipes can be complicated, I've kept all of the suggestions to six ingredients or less.

Start the day by serving your kids smoothies for breakfast, or serve as an easy afternoon snack. They're also a hit as a snack for class parties—be prepared to make serveral batches!
