Smoothies are good.
Smoothies are easy.
Kids like smoothies.
Smoothies are one way to sneak some fruit and vegetables into your kids' diets (and yours)!
Here's our daily morning smoothie. My kids ask for it every morning, and I find that I crave it. My morning doesn't feel right if I don't start off with one of these. Please excuse the bedheads in the shots below.
Using two straws is optional, of course, but I find that it gives the smoothie a little extra something.
Here's the recipe:
GREEN MONSTER SMOOTHIE
one banana, broken into pieces
handful of frozen sliced peaches
handful of frozen pineapple chunks
handful of frozen mango chunks
big handful of spinach (about 1 cup)
1/2 - 3/4 cup of orange juice, more as needed
Blend and enjoy!
