Green Monster Smoothie Recipe (kid-friendly)



There was a time when I struggled with getting my youngest to eat his veggies.  This is a recipe I came up with to incorporate them into a smoothie; one of our favorite drinks.  I named it the "Green Monster Smoothie" to make it that much more fun!  My kids love this and ask for it often.

Ingredients:
1 banana
1/2 an apple (no need to peel it)
1 small handful of sweet fruit (Mango, Pineapple or Kiwi)
1 handful of greens (I usually use baby spinach, but you could do Kale etc). 
Water and Ice

Blend ingredients in a blender and enjoy!

This tastes very much like a delicious glass full of spring!

I make this in my magic bullet blender.  It is easy to use and clean.
