I have been looking at this recipe on Mary's cooking blog for quite some time. I knew it would be yummy and I was so excited that it included 3 cups of healthy greens, but I just haven't gotten around to it. When I told Spence about it he said, "yuck!" and when I told my kids we were going to have "green smoothies" today they too were skeptical.
Well, we finally tried them today. After I blended it all up I actually got a little nervous. I thought the first few tastes might be good but I'd probably be choking it down by the end. Boy was I wrong! It was fabulous from the first sip to the last drop. My kids even asked for seconds! and Spencer thought it was yummy too! So, if you're looking for more ways to get in those veggies try this out. I love that you still have all the fiber from the veggies and fruit and are not just drinking juice. Here are a couple of links for the health benefits of kale and spinach. If you want to learn more, google has all kinds of resources.
The kids say they still prefer their "pink fruit smoothies" but I'm hoping to convince them to GO GREEN!
