I don’t know about you, but I have a kid, okay a couple of kids, that just won’t touch leafy green vegetables, so with these kids I need to get them their leafy greens in a format where they don’t resemble leafy greens.
Sometimes I a toss a bunch into a soup or stew where they wilt and don’t really look much like leafy greens.
Sometimes I throw a bag of frozen kale into a veggies and rice dish and they blend in with the other veggies.
And sometimes I go the smoothie route. This is a great recipe for getting your kids to drink green smoothies. It’s sweet, creamy, and delicious and full of all kinds of good stuff – spinach, hemp hearts, mango, pineapple, banana.
1 cup almond milk
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1 tsp raw honey
2 tbsp hemp hearts
Blend it all up in your high speed blender and enjoy!
