Snack Time: Green Smoothie

Sometimes it can be really hard to get your kids to eat...well...anything healthy. Mia is usually a good eat, but there are still things that she won't touch. Like milk, if it's not in a bottle, or spinach or any other type of leafy green. So to help out myself and others with this all too often battle of nutrition with out kids, my friend Susie has shared with us her recipe for Green Smoothies!

This is Susie's daughter Emily, drinking her green smoothie!
2 cups spinach, rinsed
Half avocado
1/2 c grapes (any color)
1/2 c strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 frozen banana
1 cup of milk (can substitute almond milk, rice milk, etc)

Then just put it all in a blender and blend. Easy as that! My mom made a similar drink when we were younger and we loved it when she added pineapple to it. Just some "food" for thought....
