one night someone really didn't want to eat his spinach salad. I offered to blend it up (a familiar idea as we make morning veggie/fruit/chia/Greens+ shakes every day) and a new dinner vegetable option was born.
the crazy thing is- the kids are eating SO much spinach this way- dark leafy greens!- yum- and they hardly realize it. every time one of them drinks 2 cups of spinach it makes me so happy.
here's how we do it:
for 3 kids:
- two big handfuls of baby spinach (i measured it for you this time- about 6 cups)
- one very ripe banana
- about 1 1/2 cups of vanilla almond milk (the sweetened kind)
- blend until completely smooth.
(i have this blender - which was expensive but we use it every day and it was so worth it)
(watch out for green mustaches)
