Green smoothies and snacks give people, especially parents, seeking healthy eating options a huge advantage – your family might actually request them as a daily snack.
The Leaping Leprechaun Green Smoothie
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1 banana
- 2 cups of spinach leaves
- 1 cup water or ice
- Combine all ingredients in a high-quality blender.
- Blend until really smooth, not grainy or chunky or with bits of leaves floating about. It can be thick, as you can always thin with water, but it needs to be smooth. This should take only a couple of minutes.
- Blend until the greens are so pulverized that they are no longer visible other than infusing your smoothie with a beautiful green color.
