I am very new to the Green Smoothie revolution. Don’t get me wrong, I love to ‘wazz up’ a bunch of fruit & give it to my kids, but I’ve never added ‘greenery’ to it. Simply because I thought my kids would turn their nose up at it!
Being inspired by the beautiful girls over at The Merry Maker Sisters and their Paleo way of life, I wanted to try something in the Paleo hemisphere! I came across a recipe similar to this (I’ve modified it though) and thought I would give it a try. To my surprise, the kids not only drank their entire glass, but then asked for more! The mango & banana sweetness really comes through. It is hand-on-heart DELICIOUS!
2 cups baby spinach
2 kiwi frui – peeled
1 orange – peeled
1/2 pineapple – chopped
1 banana – chopped
1 mango – chopped
1 cup coconut water
1/2 cup of ice
Simply place every ingredient in a blender and ‘wazz it’ on high until all ingredients are well combined.
Pour into glasses and watch the smiles appear!
