Get Your Green In

Get your Green In

If you are looking for a fun way to get your kids to eat their veggies tomorrow, try this green smoothie. This is a household favorite and it is pretty easy to make.

I don't measure anything, so I'm not much help there...start with a bunch of spinach and throw it in the blender or food processor if you don't have a blender, like me.

Once that is chopped up and there is room in the blender, add fruit. We had mango, banana and pineapple on hand. Most of the time we use a bag of frozen tropical fruit but we had fresh today, what a treat!

You can add a little honey and orange juice to thin it out and sweeten it up if you want. And then I always add a little yogurt or coconut milk if we have it on hand. Plus flax seed meal and oatmeal because I usually thin it too much with the OJ. Blend it all together until smooth and green.

Taa Daa! You have a beautiful and delicious green smoothie.

Little Man tested and approved.

Even our sweet Half Pint could drink a full pint of spinach smoothie.

And now tomorrow you can get your green on and in!
