My kids love smoothies and I love that I can hide vegetables in them! This is the easiest smoothie to make, all you need is a blender, some frozen berries, some frozen spinach and water. These are all ingredients I usually have hanging around my freezer anyway and hopefully you do to. Here is my recipe for a Frozen Berry and Spinach Smoothie in less than 5 minutes.
Frozen Berry and Spinach Smoothie
2 cups frozen berries
1 cup frozen spinach
2 cups water
Place all ingredients in a blender.
Blend for 1-2 minutes
Pour into your favorite cups
Makes about 4 cups
My kids loved taking our smoothies outside and playing in their playhouse. The recipe makes enough for 4 cups, so there was plenty left over for later or the next day.
Recently at my 3 year old’s checkup, the doctor told us to make sure she is eating more vegetables. I think it was because she flunked the question, “What’s your favorite vegetable?” Anyway, it’s normal for kids to try to exert their independence by refusing to eat the healthy food you make for them.
Although it is very frustrating! As a mom, making dinner for my kids is one of the most stressful times of my day. First as a baby, getting them to eat solid foods, then as a toddler and a preschooler and just trying to get them to eat what you make for them – it never ends.
That’s why I love this recipe and the fact that my kids didn’t even question the spinach. I didn’t even have to try to hide the fact that I was putting spinach in the smoothie. Because they love to help, there would have been no way to try to hide it.
I also love that there are really only 2 ingredients (water shouldn’t count). And you can control your level of thickness with the amount of water you blend in. I thought 2 cups was perfect, but you may need more of less.
- 2 cups frozen berries
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 2 cups water
- Place all ingredients in a blender.
- Blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.
- Pour into your favorite cups and enjoy!
