About a year ago (maybe less) my family fell in love with green smoothies. No it has nothing to do with green in the eco sense of the word but rather what is in the smoothie…lots of fresh, leafy greens. A universal issue it seems is the concern over getting our kids to eat their veggies, particularly the dark green variety. Green smoothies are the perfect solution for the whole family.
We drink at least one but usually 2-3 green smoothies a day. This means we are eating lots of Kale, spinach, collard greens, wild greens, etc and we barely even notice because they are disguised with fruit. My kids argue over who is getting the most “green power”!
Since I had so many people ask me for recipes over the past year I thought I would put together a book of all our favorite smoothie recipes and it is finished at last. Check out Green Smoothie Recipes for Kids. They are all kid approved, healthy, and as an added bonus they are also all raw vegan.
So if you have kids that would rather drink sugary juice, chocolate milk, or soda…you need to try these green smoothies. Enjoy!
