A Green Smoothie for M…

I did it…

I made my kid a green smoothie.

M’s a big fan of smoothies & I’m a big fan of green smoothies. Anything that contains 3 cups of raw spinach and tastes like banana’s and honey sounds good to me.

Yesterday I was a having a major green smoothie craving and knew a certain someone would be begging for one of her own. Here’s everything that went in the mix…

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 frozen avocado
  • 1 sliced pear (or any fruit of your choice)
  • 3 cups raw spinach
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used soy milk)

*note* if you use fresh banana & avocado add 1 cup of ice to the mix

I thought she’d turn her nose up to the green color…. but no…

If mommy was drinking it she had to have it too…

I think its safe to say this kid’s a fan.

She drank it up… green color an all.

Now if I can just get Mr. Weekly Bite to drink one.

He refuses to give into the green smoothie trend 😉

    I am impressed with M! My secret to getting my little man to eat the green smoothie I made (with kale and spinach) was I made them into popsicles! Freeze it and they will eat it!!!!

    My husband loves green smoothies…I am the one that is not a fan. Although, I should give it a try with a different combination of fruits and veggies. I love bananas, but not banana flavored drinks. I love that she loved this!

    I’m constantly amazed at what M eats. I was such a picky eater as a kid, so I can’t imagine a child eating what she does. Go you!

    never thought to put Avocado’s in my Green Smoothies!!! I don’t know why not, but I will sure try it in the future. Looks lovely! 🙂 What a cutie!

    That’s AWESOME. I was drinking my green smoothies for a few months (about 2 years ago now) when B finally asked me for a sip and has been drinking them ever since. The color is def a little off-putting for the faint of heart, but it totally tastes yummy.

    M loves her green smoothies too. As long as I’m having one too. She HAS to be like mommy.

    Meghan has a green smoothie almost every day. She loves them! My husband is the same as yours, though. Not interested.

    Oh, I make one everyday and have never thought of putting avocado in there. SO doing that.
