My kids eat spinach…..
okay, okay……not like this!!!
They did a good job of standing there pretending to eat their raw spinach for the 15 minutes I tried to get a “good shot”!!
When the shoot was over they didn’t gobble down those handfuls of spinach, they weren’t craving those leafy greens in their little hands…..no…..a mom could only wish…..
BUT….I do know how to get your kids to want to eat that spinach and LIKE it!!!

don’t be scared….

I will prove to you that this is a KID approved smoothie!!
First, start with some mango….
use as much as you want..I like to use 2 small yellow ones…or frozen chunks that I buy at the store…
next, use 1-2 bananas….
throw this in the blender with some cold water and ice…
next add in a SMALL amount of spinach…maybe 1/2 cup to start…you can also add in one of the following: honey, stevia, agave, or pure maple syrup if you want to make this smoothie really sweet!
After you have won your kids over with this great tasting smoothie you can slowly begin to add in more spinach or other greens…maybe increase by 1/2 cup each week….
sometimes I like to add in the juice of a fresh squeezed lemon to this recipe as well…:)
It’s so easy….it’s super yummy…
Here’s my proof!!
I even gave some to my niece and nephew
yep….they loved them too….
so go ahead and have a green smoothie…
and get your kids to eat spinach too!!!
