How To: Make A Green Smoothie

If you are unfamiliar with green smoothies, the main idea is to combine veggies and fruit in a smoothie to help maximize your daily vegetable intake.  My first green smoothie consisted of romaine lettuce, strawberries, and bananas – it wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t something that my kiddos would voluntarily drink.

Since that day I have created a variety of green smoothie recipes that even the pickiest-eater will enjoy.   This first recipe I am going to share with you, is a good place to start.  My four-year-old loves this smoothie so much that he volunteered to teach it.

 


Conner’s Peanut Butter Green Smoothie 
2 bananas
1/2 cup agave nectar, dates, maple syrup, honey, or sucanant
3 cups milk – soy, rice, or almond are best.
3 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup organic creamy peanut butter
2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
Spinach. Spinach. Spinach. Pack it to the brim!

 

Blend in your blender until smooth until smooth – enjoy!  If you do not have a high-powered-blender, I recommend a vitamix.
