One trick for getting my babes to eat some veggies is sneaking them into smoothies and popsicles at home! When I first heard about adding leafy greens to my smoothies, I thought there was NO WAY you wouldn’t be able to taste the veggies. But then I gave it a shot and it’s true! You don’t even know they’re in there!
When my girls began to get a little more picky about their food, I decided to give these green smoothies a try. And sure enough, my girls LOVE them. They have no idea how much spinach, kale, and flax seed they’re consuming and it’s awesome. (Muahaha!!!) A lot of times, we’ll freeze these into popsicle molds, too! Perfect for a hot summer day!
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1 tablespoon ground flax
- 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
- 1/4 cup liquid – I have used Kefir, OJ, pineapple juice, and water – just use what you have on hand!
Throw it all in the bowl of your blender, blend, and enjoy!
**You can certainly play around with this recipe. Use blackberries instead. Use kale in place of the spinach. Sometimes, I’ll throw in a banana to make it a tad more creamy. The options are endless!
