Green Goodness

What the kids see:
Yummy Green Smoothie!

What I see:

Green Veggies!

We have an overabundance of zucchini right now and I have been having fun finding ways to use it.  After I made some zucchini bread, I had a little bit of leftover shredded zucchini that I decided to save for who knows what.  Later on, a light bulb went off and I thought–why not throw some in a smoothie?!  The kids gobbled it up and didn’t think twice about how many nutrients were in that delightful drink.  

I don’t really use any recipes with smoothies–I recommend just going with what you have on hand.  Here is the gist of this smoothie concoction:
  • banana
  • spinach
  • zucchini
  • frozen pineapple
  • frozen oj
  • water
Hooray for easy ways to get veggies into my kids (and me)!
