This delicious smoothie is a favorite in our home. My daughter regularly asks me to make “The Green Smoothie.” I put this smoothie in sippy cups for both of my children and they drink it down in seconds-even my one year old!
Spinach is incredibly rich in Vitamins A, C and K as well as folate. Kiwis are an outstanding source of Vitamin C while pears provide a good dose of dietary fiber. All in all I am quite pleased my children drink this “juice” over store bought apple juice that may be tainted with arsenic. Plus I get to add in greens. And did I mention I love it too?!
Blend on high for several minutes. Pour into glasses, sip cups and the like…and enjoy!
These ingredients work great together. I also add in chia seeds and/or kale sometimes too.
