Okay I have one child that lives to eat & one that eats to live! My youngest daughter doesn’t have a huge appetite ever! So, with that, I try to make every bite as vitamin packed & healthy as possible. This smoothie is super healthy & delicious. I promise… the kids have no idea how good it is for them!
In a blender, add a handful of baby spinach leaves, two cups of fruit – frozen, fresh – whatever. I added peaches/strawberries/cherries & 1 banana. I scoop of Whey protein powder. Optional – you can add a scoop or two of low fat frozen yogurt or ice cream (I normally do this but didn’t today) or a scoop of yogurt. I also add one cup of almond milk (you can use regular low fat milk) and 2 tsp of flax seed meal and then start to blend it. My blender has a smoothie setting so I use that. Once it starts to combine, I will drizzle more milk in to get the consistency that I wish to achieve. Pour into a glass, add a straw and enjoy!
There is so much flexibility that you have when making smoothies. You can go all green – spinach, green apples, avocados etc. You can add or delete what you like. Have fun with it but my only suggestion is if you’re adding the spinach… whip the smoothie up before the kids see it 🙂
