Spinach Smoothie! Kid rated 10!

Kid approved spinach smoothie

Want you kids to get more greens in their diet? Here’s a smoothie recipe that is rated a 10+ in this household, so not only does it taste great, but it’s chock-full of nutrition! I make this smoothie for the kids to have for breakfast, lunch, or just as a healthy after school snack.  No matter when it gets served up, it’s devoured.

This smoothie is similar my kale and spinach smoothie, but it doesn’t have the kale or the flax seed in it. I did try to sneak in some flax seed one day, but the kids noticed and didn’t like it.  Oh well, I should be thankful that they love this smoothie though!  BTW, this just isn’t a smoothie for kids, I drink this all the time after the gym for a quick and healthy pick me up!  I just toss 2 tablespoons of flaxseed into my smoothie!

Spinach Smoothie! Kid rated 10

serves 2

  • 1/2 cup cold filtered water  or coconut water
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup organic grapes – I tend to use green grapes, so the smoothie stays green in color
  • 2 fully packed cups of spinach – I really pack the spinach in, so I’m sure it’s a bit more than 2 cups
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • optional for adults – 2 tablespoons ground flax seed

Place the water, pineapple, grapes, spinach and 1/2 banana into a a high powered blender.

Blend away until smooth!

Pour into a glass, add a cute straw and drink up!

A smoothie mustache is the sign of a good smoothie, wouldn’t you agree?

      1. I can’t get over that your kids will drink a spinach smoothie…that is impressive…for me to get a shot like that I would have had to paint it on my kids…seriously!!!

        1. Do it when they are not around and have it in jug in the fridge for them to drink. I use the stick blender and mashed zucchini and put it in the bolognese sauce when the kids weren’t around.They would eat it and not know till they were teens,

      2. You’ve turned me and my kids onto spinach smoothies! I really expected them to taste, well, more spinachy, but the fruit does the trick. In all honesty, I didn’t tell them until after they asked for seconds what made it green. I’ve been experimenting and they’re a great way to get what we all need into our diets on the fly.

        Thanks for sharing! I’m loving your recipes.

        1. Hi Erin! I am so glad to hear that your kids loved the spinach smoothie! Yaay! It’s so nice when you can get your kids to eat their veggies and actually enjoy it! Let me know if you come up with any other smoothie ideas!

        1. Flax seed is a dietary supplement. You can find it at your grocery store where the vitamins are sold. I get the ground flax seed that comes in a bag. The brand I use is Spectrum organic ground flax seed. Flax seed is full of Omega 3’s, it has 3 grams of dietary fiber per serving. I have 2 tablespoons on my cereal or in a smoothie every day and it really helps keep my system regular and keeps my hair, skin and nails healthy. It’s chock-full of benefits. 🙂

      7. This smoothie is delicious. I used frozen organic spinach so I have no idea if I got the quantity right but tasty.

        1. Yaay Catherine! I’m so happy you loved the smoothie 🙂 I never really measure out my spinach either, I just throw in a bunch!
