Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to sneak certain vegetables, vitamins and minerals into your diet as well as your children.  I made one the other day for us with Kale, Strawberries, Orange Juice, honey and ice cubes.  The kids had no idea what was in it and they drank it right down. 

Here is how I made it:

5 Strawberries washed and dehulled

6 chopped small kale leaves

1 Tablespoon honey

1/4 cup orange juice

5 ice cubes

Put all in the blender and blend until smooth.  Great flavor and I snuck in those extra greens!!

  1. I got a nutribullet about a year ago and it is great for smoothies like this. I eat spinach or kale everyday and I don’t like the taste of either by themselves. Fruit really does mask the taste. Great advice here!

    • Some day I hope to buy a juicer also but for now I use the regular old blender and it works. I should try spinach sometime as I don’t like it cooked only in a salad but I bet it would be great with blueberries!!
