TIP: I’ve been making smoothies almost daily this summer with lots of fresh greens in them like this. Matt and I love drinking our salad this way! But the kids? They don’t like them with as many greens as we grown-ups do. BUT! The kids will drink them with some greens. So I make a separate batch for the kids with more fruit, some yogurt, and a couple of small handfuls of fresh spinach. They drink them right up!
TIP: If I put the kids’ smoothies in cups like this, they aren’t turned off by the color created by blending in spinach. Mwuhaha. I have my ways. :)
TIP: However, my kids are onto me. So I don’t try to sneak the spinach into the blender. I have them wash their hands and help me put the leaves in themselves. That way they feel proud of the spinach in their smoothies. Mwuhahaha, again.
