My husband, daughter and I drink green smoothies every morning. I was nervous to try this because I wondered how it would taste, but it is actually very delicious and a great start to my morning and I can know that my family is getting a healthy breakfast.
It can be hard to make sure that a 1 year old eats lots of greens but she loves these smoothies. She hears the blender turn on and comes running to the kitchen for her “smooee!” I hope your family enjoys these also.
1 T. flax seeds
1 green apple (I leave the skin on my apples because my blender does a great job at pulverizing but if your worried remove)
1 orange (skin removed)
1 cup kale
1 cup spinach
1 banana, peeled
1 cup ice
1 cup water, sometimes a little more depending on how smooth or thick you want
Blend all ingredients in blender until completely blended and smooth. Pour in glass and enjoy.
Yields: 2 16oz Smoothies
Throw in blender
You can add strawberries, blueberries or juice (instead of water) to sweeten the drink. Please let me know what ingredients you like to add to your green smoothies.
