My 12 year old daughter, Hannah, loves smoothies! It's the perfect treat to get her energized for her long cheer practices or even after for a refuel. She's been a smoothie fan for as long as I can remember. In fact, we have a video we did back when she was 7 years old where she shared her favorite smoothie recipe in a Disney cookbook. [Watch original video here (her mom still adores it!)] Mortified, Hannah wanted to do another smoothie video to show everyone that she's older now and she still loves her berry smoothies.
