Summertime Green Smoothie

One easy and quick way to get your kid(s) to consume more fruits and veggies is SMOOTHIES! We drink smoothies daily around here and enjoy experimenting with different ingredients to come up with our own unique creations based on what’s on sale, what’s growing in the garden, and what’s in season. Here’s a current favorite green smoothie we have enjoyed this week!


2 cups of water

8 strawberries

1 banana

1 handful of spinach

1 teaspoon spirulina

2 tablespoons hemp seed

1/4 cup almonds

1 date

Blend on high for 2 minutes and you’ll have a beautiful, bright green, delicious, kid-friendly smoothies that provides an abundance of rich nutrients for your wee ones!

You can use fresh fruit or frozen fruit. If using fresh fruit, you’ll probably want to throw a few ice cubes in before blending. One quick tip when freezing bananas is to peel them first.

Also note that the taste and quality of spirulina can vary greatly. I prefer this brand.
