Green Smoothie Recipe for Your Little Leprechauns

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, everyone is seeing green! Even if your kids don't normally want to eat or drink green foods, this holiday is a great way to trick, er, encourage them to try something new! Even though it has a bright color, the flavor of spinach is so mild when blended into a fruit smoothie, you can't even taste it.


Ingredients
  • 1 large handful fresh organic baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup milk* (or your favorite milk alternative)
  • 2/3 cup vanilla yogurt*
  • 1 fresh banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen peaches*
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
*Choose organic for these ingredients to avoid GMOs, added hormones and persistent pesticides.

Yields 2 smoothies



Directions

  1. Add spinach and milk to a blender and blend well until no more small pieces of spinach remain - this is the secret to a green smoothie kids will actually drink!
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more ice of desired to give it a creamy milkshake texture.

  1. Yummy! This sounds absolutely delicious. I've been on a smoothie kick lately, so I can't wait to try it. I created a green smoothie using Organic Matcha Green Tea powder. It was delicious and instantly made me think of St. Patrick's day. I love adding a healthy twist!
