Get your kids eating their greens with this yummy healthy smoothie!
Share this article
your kids to eat their veggies & greens can be tough. Just when you think
you’ve got them eating the good stuff they clamp up and won’t put another bite
in their mouth. Sneaking healthy eats like spinach, kale, and even lightly
steamed broccoli into smoothies is a great way to make sure your little one gets
the nutrients they need without the fuss. This recipe is great served in
reusable pouches for mess- free or on- the- go snacking or tucked into school
you have a garden chock full of leafy greens, you can whip up a large batch and
fill ice cube trays to enjoy long after they’re out of season (a budget-
friendly and healthy option? Yes
please!). You can alter this basic recipe to include berries and other tasty
healthy foods that your kids love. Happy snacking!
1 banana (frozen bananas are a great way to use up fruit
that’s more ripe than you prefer to eat)
1 cup milk or milk alternative
1 kale leaf
handful of spinach
1 tsbp honey
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
Optional: use a few ice cubes if not using a frozen banana
½ cup plain or vanilla yogurt
Put all ingredients in a blender until desired consistency
is reached. Pour into desired container & serve to your little food critics
(make sure you make enough for you too!)
