3 Michigan-made Smoothies from Malamiah Juice Bar

What are your go-to snacks at the office, and after school with the kids? It can be easy to reach for the pretzels and snack crackers, but Malamiah Juice Bar in Grand Rapids challenges you to try another simple staple: fruit and vegetable juice blends.

Getting the family to appreciate healthy eating starts with cooking together in the kitchen. Toss your favorite produce into a blender to get a delicious, vitamin-packed mix in minutes. Along the way, kids learn basic cooking skills like chopping and measurement. Try sneaking in other greens that are in-season to remix any of the below #MIKidsCan recipes.
