Ever wished your kids were fans of green smoothies? Now’s your chance! With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, anything green goes! Today my 11-year-old, Zoe (who normally refuses to eat green smoothies), told me that she had an idea for a St. Patrick’s Day green smoothie. Can I just tell you how fast I dropped what I was doing and took her to the store to get apples and lemons? Like lightening, that’s how fast. Green smoothies are NUTRIENT-DENSE. Apples, lemons, fresh spinach and dairy-free yogurt = vitamin C, iron, magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and probiotics, oh yeah. And now that she’s crazy about this green smoothie, it can become part of her routine. I’m really loving St. Patrick’s Day right about now 🙂
And so we have a long overdue installment from Kids Who Are Inspired to Cook. Thank you Zoe B!
Zoe’s Green Smoothie
that all my kids DEVOURED, but can be made milder if your kids prefer, see notes below
NOTES: With 2 lemons and using Granny Smith apples this is a Ka-Pow kinda smoothie. My kids LOVE the Ka-Pow, but you can use 1 lemon and apples that are less tart for a milder smoothie.
1. Puree all of the ingredients until smooth.
2. Pour into glasses and enjoy.
Also, big thanks to today’s guest food stylist, my Zoe B, for her excellent photo styling!
