Spinach Smoothie! Kid rated 10!
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
- 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!
See, my kids are really drinking it and loving it. By the way, I did not instruct them to pose for this picture!
A smoothie mustache is the sign of a good smoothie, wouldn’t you agree?
My kids also love these smoothies!
Strawberry, mango and banana smoothie.
