Aimee's Tips

It takes a kid at least 30 bites to begin to like something

Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2
2 cups of greens (Spinach, Kale, swiss chard, collards)
2 cups of liquid (almond, coconut, rice milk)
3 cups of fruit (Banana, Mango, Berries, Peach, Apples, Grapes, Pears, pineapple)
**It is best to use at least one frozen fruit to chill smoothie.  Also frozen organic fruit is a lot cheaper!
Blend the liquid and the greens first.  Then add fruit.  You want to drink immediately for most nutritious value and taste.
Kids love to make smoothies and pick their ingredients and then help mix them and watch their creation un-fold! You can always take a smoothie on the go with you too so it's a mobile meal!
Give your smoothie a boost with 2 tbsp. of these protein & flavor boosting favorites:
Chia seeds
flax seeds
almond butter
hemp protein
rice protein
cinnamon or cocoa
Nutritional values will vary depending on types of fruit and greens that you decide to use.  Usually a smoothie will be right around 300 calories.
