I’m adding more leafy greens to my family’s diet this year. My 4 year old is the pickiest eater on the planet (I swear), I wasn’t sure how I was going to do this. I began to research green smoothies online. I came across a bunch that sounded super yummy and then created this tasty green smoothie recipe. It is so easy and a perfect after school snack. You can name the drink whatever you like to get your kids to drink it (such as Princess Fiona Frappe, Oscar’s trash can delight) I chose to go with the Kermit themed name because of IT Mommy Tee’s LOVE of The Muppets.
- 1 bag frozen mixed tropical fruit (ours had bananas, strawberries, mangos, pineapple and papaya
- 3/4 cup of orange juice
- 1.5 handfuls of baby spinach
- 1 handful of stemmed kale
Add fruit, spinach and kale to the blender and mix until it is thin enough to enjoy through a straw. You can add more juice if needed. I really wasn’t sure if my daughter would drink this! But she LOVED it.
