The Non-Green Green Smoothie

Recently, a few people have told me that they would love to be able to feed their kids green smoothies to get more nutrition into them. The catch was that their kids refused to eat anything green.

I made a non-green green smoothie for the girls this morning. I actually assumed that it would come out green but it didn't.


Non-Green Green Smoothie
(approximate measurements)

-- 3 cups of organic baby kale
-- 1 banana
-- 1.5-2 cups of frozen berries (blueberries and strawberries)
-- 2 cups of water

1. Throw all ingredients in a blender and thoroughly mix.
2. Enjoy!

This smoothie was quite tart from the berries. If you prefer your smoothie to be a bit sweeter, add a tablespoon of honey.

Even though it is red, you can feel good knowing that your kids (and you!) are getting all of the fantastic nutritional benefits from the healthy serving of kale in this smoothie.
