Want you kids to get more greens in their diet? Here is a smoothie recipe that is rated a 10 in this household, yes a 10. I make this for the kids to have with their lunch on the weekend or just as a healthy after school snack. This is similar my kale and spinach smoothie, but it doesn’t have the kale or the flax seed in it. I did try to sneak in the flax seed one day, but the kids noticed and didn’t like it. Oh well, I should be thankful that they love this smoothie though! BTW, this just isn’t a smoothie for kids, John and I drink this all the time after the gym. We just throw in 2 tablespoons of flaxseed in ours.
- 1/2 cup cold filtered water
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 cup organic grapes
- 2 fully packed cups of spinach - I really pack the spinach in, so I’m sure it’s more than 2 cups
- 1/2 banana
- optional for adults – 2 tablespoons flax seed
See, they are really drinking it and loving it. I did not instruct them to pose for this picture!
A smoothie mustache is the sign of a good smoothie, wouldn’t you agree?
