Yeah, I know what you are thinking. Green smoothie, come on its gotta be nasty!
Nope, not so. I am actually enjoying a yummy green smoothie as we speak.
A few years ago I found a great company called Amazing Grass. They have fantastic powdered greens and wheatgrass for those days you can’t juice all the veggies or blend them yourself.
This morning I used 2 cups of organic rice milk, 1/2 cup of organic strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen mangoes, 1 scoop of organic wheatgrass powder by Amazing Grass, one banana and 1/2 of a zucchini, unpeeled.
Blendy Blendy in my manly Vitamix and done, ready for the green mustache!
My kids even enjoy these smoothies but if your kids are anti-green you might try adding in a spoon of organic raw honey or organic coconut sugar and then giving it to them in a cup that’s not see through, with lid and straw so that they can’t see what’s in it. Be sure to use frozen organic fruits or ice so that it comes out more like a slushy.
Then when they are done you can tell them what they just drank so that next time you can give it to them without all the extras.
But if you are really into greens then I can recommend a fantastic product I keep on hand that is powdered and has several antioxidant-rich greens that help boost immunity and promote overall wellness. Email me at LaChicaOrganica@gmail.com I will send you the information and how to purchase.
May the Green be with you!
