I made Broccoli Cheese soup tonight for dinner and Paisley cried and refused to eat it and sat at the table until bedtime. The funny thing is that just hours before that, she drank a huge glass of this Kale Smoothie and it was as green as green is green.
Making smoothies together was a habit that Judah and I started back when he was just over a year old. While the blender would roar loudly, we'd dance and we still do that to this day.
I grab the blender, they all pull chairs over and help put everything in. Today I was inspired by Mary Beth Johnson and we made our first Kale Smoothie.
Kid Friendly Kale Smoothie
1-2 ripe bananas
1 vanilla yogurt
Huge handful of spinach
Tear kale leaves from their stalk and throw a good handful into the blender. Add the ripe, peeled bananas, the yogurt and the apple juice. Blend it well, adding more juice if necessary. After it's well combined, throw in a big handful or two of spinach. If you like your smoothies cold, then you could also add some ice to make it chilled. ENJOY!
