Kids green smoothie
I'm feeling a little bit like a culinary mom genius this morning! LOL. Well, okay, maybe not - but let me bask in my glory. The kids love smoothies and they particularly love peanut butter/banana smoothies. I usually make those with bananas, peanut butter, vanilla, and soymilk. Well, today I decided to try and "green" the smoothie. I made it with spinach, dates, water, probiotic powder, flax meal, bananas, vanilla, crunchy peanut butter, and ice cubes. Even though the drink is green, the kids are in there happily drinking their spinach! I honestly wasn't too worried. I mean these kids have grown up with "weird" food! LOL. I'm having some for breakfast, too, and it's good! Next time though - I think I'll be sure and freeze the bananas instead of throwing in ice cubes. The ice cubes kind of dilute the taste a little - I think it would taste better without them.
