As a parent, I know how difficult it can be to motivate children to eat their veggies – particularly the green ones. So I was delighted when I came across this heavenly mix of a fruit smoothie stuffed with fresh leafy green veggie!
Most children love a sweet cool treat, so adopting this smoothie drink for breakfast has been the best healthy habit for my family.
I love making green smoothies – its so much fun! Furthermore, you get all these extraordinary benefits: lots of green veggies and fruits, a high amount of nature’s vitamins, and you get what your body needs—like live enzymes and essential amino acids (protein).
I’m so happy I found a recipe by Dana (from 3boysunprocessed.com) – a green smoothie recipe that I love and I will include this to our daily breakfast habit.
As Dana says..
I’ve secretly been dying to make a layered smoothie just to make my kids go “oooooooohhhhh!” After I made this today I told my 3 year old is was a “Raph Smoothie” aka the red Ninja Turtle.
He’s my smoothie boy already but the words “Raph Smoothie” intrigued him enough to want some immediately and he loved it! With no signs of anything green in sight him and the baby were fighting over the last drops.
I combined some frozen bananas, strawberries, the water from a can of coconut milk, pomegranate arils, and spinach to make this and it tasted fantastic without being completely weird and chunky.
