I made my kids drink spinach… and they liked it

I’ve heard of green smoothies, but never looked into them much. Then a friend of mine recently posted about her experiment with adding spinach to smoothies and I was encouraged to try. Check out her recipe.

For our own experiment, I just added a few cups of fresh spinach to our normal smoothies.

Frozen berries (we used blackberries)
Frozen sliced bananas
Fresh spinach
Protein powder
Yogurt
Ground flaxseed (a tablespoon or so)
Milk

Wish I could give you measurements, but I basically just add what looked good and then put enough milk in the end so that it would blend thoroughly. My son wasn’t a big fan of the blackberry seeds (he usually has blueberry) but he loved the smoothie overall. Using straws helped. Samantha LOVED them, as you can see. 🙂

    What kind of protein powder do you use? I’ve thought about adding this to our smoothies as well, but hadn’t tried it yet!
