Smoothie-Happy Girl

Posted on: December 31, 2010

I was resizing pictures from a recent park trip and somehow this one got in the mix. Although I don’t usually showcase my kiddos on this blog, I thought you might be interested in knowing more about the Green Smoothies we have for breakfast almost every morning. They are a great way to incorporate more superfoods into your diet! As you can see, my daughter enjoys them! 🙂

This is what it looks like after we’ve pureed a couple big handfuls of spinach with a little liquid (water or juice) and added in some ground flax seed, bananas (3-4 fresh or frozen, in chunks) and a bit of plain yogurt. Since we don’t have a blender we use our food processor.

Now we add in the frozen berries (Costco is our friend!). Depending on how many smoothies we want, we use 2-4 cups of frozen berries. I usually have to stop the processing and scrape down the sides a couple of times. In addition, we sometimes add more liquid at this point until we reach the consistency we like. Lately we’ve been drinking it with straws – so much less messy!

Voila! Our final product, along with eggs I hard-boiled in our rice cooker. A yummy, nutritious breakfast for the whole family!

Seriously. You can’t taste the spinach. Just try it before you gasp in disbelief, okay?
