If your kids are anything like mine the thought of eating vegetables, or even looking at them for that matter, is terrifying. There are a few vegetables my kids WILL eat but for the most part they get thrown on the floor. I keep trying nonetheless.
However, recently I discovered the magic of GREEN smoothies. Are you a fan? I can throw practically anything in there and because it is a “smoothie” my kids will drink it. My favorites are spinach, kale and carrots mixed with banana, oranges and pineapple. The fruit covers up the spinach taste. It’s a win-win for everyone. Easy breakfast for mom, yummy treat for the kids and they are getting a serving of vegetables. I wish I would of started making these sooner.
Here’s a few of my favorite recipes. They are deceptively delicious!
Green smoothie from I Heart Nap Time
Green monster smoothie from Iowa Girl Eats
Tropical Green smoothie from Skinny Taste.
You can also throw berries in there, so it doesn’t look so “green.”
So are YOU a green smoothie fan? I’d love to hear your favorite recipes.
