Here’s a fun smoothie recipe that is very sweet and full of fruits AND vegetables. Your kids will never know the difference. If you are like me and want my kids to get enough fruits and vegetables yet give them goldfish and crackers all day to keep them happy and quiet in the car, then try this out. They will drink it and you will feel a little better about their snacking habits.
Green Machine Smoothie
1 (6 oz) container low fat plain yogurt
1 cup red grapes
1 banana, peeled
1 granny smith apple, cored and chopped
1 1/2 cups baby spinach (about 3 oz)
1 cup orange juice (I used fresh squeezed, but either will work)
Directions: Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add more orange juice if needed to make consistency you desire.
Note: If you would like a colder smoothie, try freezing the grapes and banana ahead of time.
Thanks for the recipe Nana! My mom is queen of reading food magazines and cutting out recipes she thinks I would like.
